The “Keys” to proper home security
Most families consider safety and security a high priority in their home. Mom, Dad and the kids are heading out for a day trip. Suddenly an overwhelming sense of uncertainty comes over Dad. “Did you lock the back door?” he asks. “I thought you did,” Mom answers. “Did I? I honestly don’t remember,” he questions. He most likely did lock the back door, but in the business of preparation, such a mundane task did not register in his consciousness. Even if he did forget, the odds of a burglar correctly assuming that it’s unlocked and breaking in during the middle of the day, are rather low. “I’d rather be safe than sorry,” is an often repeated but wise mantra. There have been enough tragic stories on the news to warn us of the dangers of taking a risk. Home security is of the utmost importance.
To protect your family and belongings, there are several important steps that you can take. One of the best home security measures is investing in a quality safe. Safes are great to store jewelry, guns and prized possessions. Having a safe bolted down adds even more security. A smaller and more compact safe can be easily pilfered. The thief can then bring it back home and work on cracking it at his leisure. You should also make sure your safe is of top-of-the-line quality. A cheap safe, purchased from a department store, can be easily broken into by an experienced thief.
Locks and keys have been the “key” to safety for hundreds of years. When having keys made, you should make sure that they are only distributed to people that you can trust. Controlled keys, which cannot be duplicated, are another great option. While these are all great, locks and keys should also be coupled with a trusted security system. The mom and dad from before may feel the need to turn around to double check their doors.
