Overview

Securing your home is easier than you think. There are many products and ways that you can increase the security around your home that provide you and your family with peace of mind.

Steps

1Security cameras

Security cameras are a good way to keep an eye on your home 24 hours a day. You can install them yourself and there's a wide variety to choose from. Many come with a DVR and an app that lets you view your footage remotely. Alternatively, an imitation dome camera is another way of looking after your home. It looks like the real thing, is easy to install and has a red flashing light to help deter intruders.

2Install deadbolts

Deadbolts or deadlocks are stronger than a normal door lock, making it harder to break into your home and they're easy to install. For extra piece of mind, you can also get deadbolts for your windows, sash windows and sliding doors.

3Window alarms

Window alarms are an easy way to know if someone is trying to force their way into your home. They detect vibrations, which sets off a loud alarm. An adhesive strip on the back of the alarm makes them simple to install.
