The importance of household security

Your family is the most important aspect of your household. Securing your home in case of a break-in is extremely important, especially in high crime country like South Africa. While the policing in certain areas are awesome, if you are in a neighborhood where crime is a constant worry, you need to ensure a tight and secure home for your family.

So what do you do? the answer is simple. Start with securing your windows. Your security bars need to be strong but also aesthetically pleasing to the eye. Each window has to have a secure locking system so that no weak spots are found by clever minded criminals. A great solution is to use security shutters. Plantation Shutters has a great product for this purpose. Each of their shutters are made of 50mm aluminium and have a 2-way bolting system which ensures a solid and sturdy security solution. They all come in a variety of colors which you can match to the design of your home.

The next step to creating a safe home is to make sure your doors are as impenetrable as possible. The best way to do that is to install a dead lock mechanism on your door if it hasn’t got one already. Dead lock mechanisms are usually installed in addition to your normal locking system. For more advice on the range of different dead lock mechanisms, you can contact Saunderson Security.

The last step is to make sure you have a quality security company keeping an eye on you. While motion sensors are a commonly used system, they can be avoided. It is essential to have a system that has a human element attached to it. A great example is the Guardian Eye service that Vox Orion is offering. It is a remote CCTV surveillance and monitoring service available in South Africa. Along with your regular alarm system, Guardian Eye has a 24 hour surveillance through your CCTV system. If an intruder manages to avoid your alarm system then the Guardian Eye agents will spot them and call the police and your security company if you have one.
