On March 23, 2016, In Safety Tips,

Wayne Alarm does its best to keep families safe with a range of home security services. An installed alarm system will decrease the chances of a break in and will deter any burglars that do make their way into your home. Below are tips which can also protect your family during a home invasion.

Go through your Checklist: Create a checklist that can maximize your security. Every time you leave or enter your house, be sure to double check your mental checklist.

Keep The Door Shut: Many burglars enter a home through the front door. It’s important to understand that opening the door for someone will leave you vulnerable. Understand the risks of opening the door for a stranger and if you sense a level of suspicion, tell them the door is locked and to leave any information on the door step.

Door Chains or Bars: Don’t waste your time with door chains or bars. These can easily be broken through by just about anyone.

Alarm Systems: After investing in a Wayne Alarm security system, be sure that you are using it on a regular basis. Arming your home security system is the single most important thing you can do to deter crime.

Keep Your Security Plans Internal: Don’t tell anyone outside your family about security plans, shared keys, security codes, vacations, etc.

Designated Safe Room: Create a designated safe room for your family. Within this room, you should have a phone, flashlight, and if possible, a fire alarm.

There are also common home security mistakes that you should avoid at all cost.
