Home Security Tips | Newhams Security Blog

Home security systems are popular in Sydney and in cities and towns around the world. A home security system makes homeowners feel safe at night when they’re sleeping and when they are away from home during the day. However, there is a tendency for people with home security systems to grow lax when it comes to other areas of home security.

Here are three easy tips to remember to make sure your home security system is not doing all the work of keeping your home safe from intruders:

  • Upper Level Security: It can be hard to imagine someone breaking into your home not via the ground floor, however, it is still possible, and thieves are aware that most people don’t think about locking windows that are not on the ground floor. If you do not lock windows on the upper levels of your home, an intruder may be able to break into your house by taking advantage of nearby trees and structures to climb up to the upper windows of your home.

  • Spare Keys: It’s tempting to keep a spare key to your home somewhere in the yard, but thieves will likely find it. If you do need to have a spare key in case you lock yourself out of your home, try keeping it in your desk at work, or give it to a friend or family member who lives nearby, otherwise you might as well just leave your front door wide open.

  • Faulty Locks: Everything breaks, and that include locks. It is important that if you notice one of the locks in your home is not working properly that you replace it as soon as possible. A faulty lock is just as bad as no lock at all, if not worse as the household has a false sense of security because of the lock’s presence.

By adhering to these tips you should find that you can sleep easy at night, safe in the knowledge that you are doing everything to keep your home safe, and you aren’t just relying on the home security system to cover for your own lack of preparedness.
