Did you know that every year more than a hundred thousand burglaries take place? At Smart Vision Plus we take this seriously and your home security is our top priority.

In four short steps, our Thornhill residential security services team is going to guide you on how to effectively protect your home to lower your chances of getting victimized. 

Consider a Smart Home 

The biggest reason people purchase home automation packages is to increase security factors. Of course, there are “cool” and “fun” features that come along with this, security remains the highest-ranked. A smart home can give remote access to locks, CCTV cameras, lights, and fire alarms among much more. A smart home can also be connected to your smartphone and you can set up real-time alerts to track any suspicious activity. More reasons to consider a smart home include: 

  • Allow you to turn on/off TV & lights from far away destinations so when you’re on vacation, intruders think you are home
  • Check smoke & fire alarms
  • 2-way talk doorbell will allow you to talk to strangers from inside your home
  • Live video monitors will track what is happening on your driveway 

Strengthen Your Front Door 

It may come as a surprise, but front doors are easier to break down than you think. A front door has a weak area and it is located right where the lock inserts into the door jamb. With one strong strike to this exact spot, it could break the plate, frame, or even both making it easy for intruders to kick down the door.  

In order to help prevent this action from taking place, replace any 3-inch screws with longer screws. This will offer more resistance to your door. The strike plate can also be improved by purchasing a reinforcement kit. 

Security Cameras 

Have you seen news coverage on TV that was captured on one’s home video footage? Most likely the answer here is yes. Home video surveillance has become a popular solution to eliminate and solve crimes. You can either get a full home security package or just install a few individual security cameras. Features that security cameras can incorporate include:  

  • Night vision 
  • Motion detection 
  • Weatherproof cameras 
  • Wi-Fi connection
  • 2-way talk system

Smart Lock Installation 

Instead of using a physical key for your front door, it’s time to consider a smart lock. Smart locks have become extremely popular in this day and age and they provide more security. Opening your door through a keypad or finger scan is safer today than using a physical key. This is because physical keys can get stolen, lost, or forgotten as well intruders know where to look for extra keys. For example, under the doormat, under a rock, or inside a nearby plant pot.
