How to Keep Your Home Safe from Invasion
Home break-ins vary from burglaries because they involve a member of the household being present at the time of intrusion. They can pose a larger threat to your safety, however, as there is greater chance of confrontation. You can prevent home invasions by taking a few preemptive steps around the home.
When it comes to protecting your family – and your belongings – the first step is to reinforce the outside of your home with cameras and a security system. You should also ensure that valuables are hidden from sight. If large, open windows make it difficult to conceal your belongings, try using privacy film.
Should an offender enter the home regardless, be prepared with motion sensors to detect the first sign of an attack. Make sure you also install security film on any glass doors or windows, to limit the extent of shattering when broken. You can prevent damage like this, and more, using tips from the infographic below.
