Every summer, homeowners take some time to improve things around the house and make adjustments to plans that get neglected the rest of the year. Hopefully, you’ll include home security in that effort. Here are some ways you can adjust your home security this summer so that the rest of the year goes as smoothly as possible.
Come up with a home emergency plan.
If you became the victim of a house fire, burglary or extreme weather event, how would your family handle it? With a home emergency plan, you can be more prepared. A home emergency plan should include:
- Where the family will meet other
- What route everyone will take to get there
- What each person’s role and responsibility is
- What hazards you may face and how to handle them
After completing the emergency plan, your family should rehearse it so that you can act quickly if any of the emergencies occur.
Maintain your natural security measures.
When we say “natural,” we’re talking about the landscaping in your yard. For example, your hedges. If they’ve grown too high, your hedges can be potential hiding spots for those who would break in. By keeping hedges trimmed, you can decrease the places burglars and prowlers have to hide. A little outdoor maintenance can go a long way when it comes to keeping your home secure.
Bring your system up to date.
If your home security system is out of date, consider making it up to date in summer 2020. An updated home security system should give you:
- Professional, 24/7 alarm monitoring service
- The ability to connect security cameras and smart locks
- A mobile app that lets you control everything from your phone
