Making your home a safer place can mean different things to different people. It can be making sure that the house’s interior is safe from things that can endanger the occupants, or it can be keeping it safe from things outside your home or even a combination. At CO Insurance Specialists in Wheat Ridge, CO, we help our customers understand the coverage they have with their home insurance and make sure it is precisely what they need.
Add a home security system.
It has never been easier or less expensive to have a home security system. Many of them are easy to install in only a few minutes, and they allow you to monitor your home 24/7 from wherever you are with your cellphone. You can opt for monthly monitoring or not. You will never wonder who is at your door again.
Add and use deadbolts.
If you don’t currently have deadbolts on your home, you should. Not only should you have them, but you also need to use them every day.
Use window locks
People forget that windows have locks, and intruders often find their way in through either left open or left unlocked windows.
Cut back high bushes.
Keep the bushes close to your home small. You don’t want to give an intruder anyplace to hide.
Use motion-activated lights
Place motion-activated lights so that if anyone approaches any of the doors on your house, they will turn on. It may be annoying because any animal who crosses the path can turn it on, but it is worth having the light you need.
