Now we are not having to stay at home any longer, this means that burglars have a lot more opportunities to be able to access homes and make off with our possessions. Making sure that you have all the necessary things in place to make your home more secure is something that is important as you head off back out there again – to work and on holiday!
For example, if you have been having trouble with a faulty lock, now is the time to get it replaced. A professional company like this 24 hour locksmiths Exeter based Guardian Security Locksmiths will be able to help you with this.
The fact that we are living in an era of smart technology, is also something that can help when it comes to home security. If you like your home to be hi-tech and cutting edge, here are a few ways that technology can help you to protect your home…
Smart Locks – Electronic locking systems mean that keys are not necessary (handy if you are always losing yours!) – they work in various ways, from password protection to fingerprint recognition. This is a great option for you if you want to be free of the worry of carrying (and potentially losing!) a key.
Doorbell Cameras – These have really taken off and are a handy way to see who is at your house when you aren’t there. Even if you are on holiday, you can monitor people coming to your door via your smartphone.
Timers – These are not really that new, but in the era of smart technology they are getting more high tech and can be linked up to many devices and controlled from your phone. Turning lights and electronics on and off when you are not there is a great way to give the illusion that someone is home.« Back
