2 Ways To Keep Your Family Safe

by Jeremy Bates

If you want to keep your family safe while you are in your home, there are several things that you can do to make sure that your home is as safe as possible. 


One thing that you can do is to improve all the locks on your doors. You want to make sure that you have deadbolts on all your doors. Make sure that you have the best deadbolt that you can get. If you are looking for ones that are more secure, then think about getting deadbolts with longer tongues. Those tongues go into your door jamb further and are harder to get around. You may also want to consider a one-sided deadbolt on your doors to use as extra security. These deadbolts only show on the inside where you can lock and unlock them. There is no outside faceplate, so no one will know that you have that deadbolt. If someone wants to pick your locks and get into your house, they are going to have a hard time because they won't know that you have that deadbolt. 

Alarm System

Getting an alarm system is also a good idea. There are a variety of systems that you can use, as well as a variety of features. If you get an alarm system for your house, you can pick and choose what you want to have, which will make the system the most functional for you and your house. For example, you may choose to only have your doors and windows wired to the point where there is an audible alarm that goes off when the circuit is broken because the door or window has been opened. That would be a basic system. Or, you can add things onto your system. You may choose to have the system call the alarm company if it goes off so that they can call the police to your location as well as calling you to make sure that it's not a false alarm. You can also choose to have an emergency button that you can carry around with you. This would be a good idea if you have someone in your house who is prone to falls and will need to have medical assistance. The alert button can be pushed and medical services can be sent to that person.
