It is important to have proper security measures in your household in order to ensure that you and your family are kept safe, especially at night. The following are some tips to help you set up some simple security measures.
Get a dog
Having a dog at your house could help immensely in keeping intruders at bay. Dogs, in general have sharp senses and can easily identify when a stranger enters the household. Apart from this, they can also defend themselves and strike fear into intruders who may attempt at attacking the dog. One of the other benefits to having a dog is that they make excellent pets as well. If you are getting a dog for security purposes however, you may want to get a Rottweiler, Pitbull or German Shepherd.
One of the most efficient forms of security would be to have a security camera in Singapore in all the key entrances and exits to your household. Even if there is a burglary in your household you can still identify the criminal using the camera footage which may help the police in tracking them down. Look for a company that specialises in security to help you with the installation. Another cheaper alternative is to use dummy cameras, which look identical to a normal camera except their purpose is to prevent any intruders that may want to break in as they may think they are being watched.
Have locks on all doors
Although this may be a bit of a trivial security solution, having high quality locks can make a difference in making it harder for intruders to break in to your home. For example, if you were to use a small latch to lock the door, it can very easily be opened by applying some force to the door, in contrast to having a strong door lock. If you hired a good company for the CCTV installation, they may be able to provide you with some better locks as well.
Most burglaries usually take place at night, so if you were to illuminate your house with lights, it may put off any robbers who may want to break into your house, since it creates an element of uncertainty in their thoughts as to if there are people who are already awake in the household. The disadvantage to this is that it may incur a significant cost on your electricity bill and also may hinder you from sleeping.
These simple, yet effective security measures can make a significant difference to your household protection.
