Often times when homeowners are considering their home security they tend to overlook the importance of securing the garage. The garage tends to be used as a storage place for numerous valuable power tools, lawnmowers and your cars. Not only are their valuables in the garage but an attached garage could also allow easy access to the rest of your home.
As many homeowners overlook this the garage door becomes an easy point in many homes security. Depending on the type of garage door that you have, contacting a professional or consultant for advice may be in your best interest.
Install a Security System – A garage security system that’s attached to your home security system is one of your best lines of defense. If someone tries to enter your garage, the alarm will sound and emergency officials will be notified.
Keep your Windows Covered – Use blinds or curtains to keep the windows covered in your garage so potential thieves aren’t able to window shop. Another option is to apply a translucent or opaque film to the glass. This allows for sunlight to come in but blocks others from seeing inside.
Use Timers – Life can be chaotic, when you’re running out to the door to a ball game, or a kid forgets to push the button or you forget to shut the door before you go to bed. This could potentially be an open invitation for anyone to come in. Relying on your memory to close the door isn’t the best idea. Use a timer that will close the garage door after a certain amount of time.
Replace Old Garage Doors – Older garage doors are more susceptible to forced entry because of all the wear and tear over the years. They can become loose or develop rust which makes it easier for someone to break in.
