Pseudo Home Security or Real Home Security?
False sense of security can be worse than no security.
This side-by-side comparison should shed some light on Fortified Home Security.
Secondary Supplemental Home Security.
Here was an instance of a 500 lb safe (including Contents) that came tumbling down a flight of stairs. Bolting to the floor is a good idea unless it’s wood or tile. That day, greed met it’s match, until they remembered they came on foot, and had no way of carrying it through woods with the shotgun and guitar equipment that was taken.
Up top is the alarm keypad and how it failed to keep the intruders out or even make them scatter. See, what happen in this case study, was they climbed up on the roof and came in the upstairs window. Semi-clever, because most Home Security Companies never recommend putting the motion detector upstairs. The extra $59 might be a dealbreaker.
Seriously, anyone can literally have minutes ransacking the upstairs before running downstairs and triggering the alarm(If it’s on Away, Not Stay). Remember, glass break sensors do not trigger if the window was pryed open.
Primary Home Security
Discussing Exterior Home Security, believe it or not, can actually start with Digital Security Cameras, or surveillance. Motion detection can prompt a smartphone before the doorbell.
Hatches. Doors should be a Certified Security Door, at least 16 gauge steel used throughout. Hardware store deadbolts can be key-bumped in seconds. Cylindrical deadbolts can be disabled with crowbars, bullets, and a cattle bolt pistol like “No Country for Old Men.” A Mortise style lock with multiple shootbolts is the optimal choice.
Portholes. Impact Glass Windows, or more importantly Window Security Screens are a most to slow them down, or completely deter them. All the reason businesses have metal shutters.
As much as we all wanted to see a 500 lb. safe traveling at 25mph Squash the crook running around downstairs, it’s more important to count Fail-Safe Home Security measures.
