Securing Your Garage

by Cassie January 24, 2017

Locking your front door is something of a ritual to you at this stage of the game, right? You retire to your bedroom, curl up with a good book, and sleep soundly knowing that you’ve locked your doors and are protected. But have you ever considered your garage door? It may look like a veritable welcome mat to someone trying to take your valuables. However, security systems and other measures can be taken to keep unwanted guests on the outside.

Don’t Leave Your Garage Remote In Your Car

If your door has a remote open feature, do not leave the remote in your vehicle no matter where it is parked. A quick visit to any local home improvement store to replace your larger remote in favor of a transportable keychain remote will give you added peace of mind knowing that there is no access to unlock your garage door without your knowledge. Just match the brand and the year and be sure to read the manual for activation instructions.

Lock The Doors And Windows

Be certain that all windows are in the lock position. For added measure, you can install pre-made bars or fashion steel pipes to either side of the windowpane to create a barrier. If you have a connecting door from your garage to the main interior of your home, be sure that the lock on this door is always fastened properly.

Cover Windows

Burglars are usually on the hunt for access points, but are also attracted to low hanging fruit. To that end, installing curtains or blinds to your windows can help divert unwanted attention from your home. If blinds are not an option for you, an opaque wallpaper will distort any activity inside your garage.

Motion Detector Exterior Lights

Motion sensor lighting can scare away bandits and alert you in enough time to intervene in any situation. The infrared lights sense body temperature and anything that moves. You can adjust the timer for the length that any given light will stay on and give the illusion that you are home and awake.

Install A Security System

After you’ve taken proper precautions, you’ll want to consider installing a home security system. My Alarm Center security alarms can help catch prowlers off guard and alert you and the police to their misadventures.

The safety of your family and property is important. Follow this guide to protect your assets and sleep the night away knowing that your home is protected on all fronts, inside and out.
