Our Top Spring Home Security Tips

Spring is officially here! While that typically means warmer weather and some spring cleaning, it is also an excellent time to take a look at your home security system and follow our tips for improvement!

As much as we are all excited for warmer weather approaching, warm weather also statistically comes with higher crime rates, home invasions, and burglary rates. One of the best ways of lowering your home or business's likelihood of theft, vandalism, and many other crimes, is through a robust security system. An excellent security system will:

  • Lower your risk of theft
  • Decrease your insurance premiums
  • Increase the value of your property
  • Provide peace of mind

If a new home security system is not in the cards this spring, you might want to check out our other tips on how to protect your home this spring.

Our Top Spring Home Security Tips From Our Calgary Alarm Company

1. Do a spring cleaning safety check

While you do your annual spring deep cleaning, why not mix in a spring safety check at the same time! Since you are already making your home better by cleaning all of those aspects that have been left by the wayside, it makes complete sense to inspect all of your sensors, alarms, and detectors at the same time!

Smoke and CO2 Detectors

One of the most important things to check in your home are your smoke detectors and CO2 alarms. A faulty one of these can be the difference between life and death in an emergency. To properly check these systems, check out our recent article on How To Test Your Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detectors.

Door & Window Locks

Just about every study will show that, as the weather warms up, so too does the rate of home burglaries and invasions. The number one way of making sure intruders cannot get into your home is to prevent easy access. When you are cleaning your windows or walking through your front door to the outside, why not take a few minutes to check that the locks are working properly, or have one of our skilled technicians come out and expertly inspect them ourselves.

Video Surveillance

If your home uses a video surveillance system, consider giving it a thorough inspection, both visually and technically. Visually make sure that all cameras are pointed correctly and that all wiring is safely organized. Also, take some time to technically inspect each camera that the video quality is optimal and is accurately transmitting. If you need assistance with the technical side of your inspection, contact Frontline Security, who will help you ensure your home is adequately protected and surveillance.

2. Mow your grass

Warm months mean more trips to the cabin, to see family, friends, and day trips! While these are exciting times, leaving your home for lengthy periods also exposes you to a greater likelihood of intruders.

The last thing that a potential intruder wants is to get caught in the act. This is why burglars canvas homes and target ones seem to be empty or with a low chance of being caught. One of the most tangible signs that nobody is home, and has not been for some time, is an unmowed lawn. The longer the grass, the more likely it is that nobody is home, making it a prime target for burglars. If you plan on going away for a vacation, be sure to ask a friend, family member, neighbour, or maybe some local kid to mow your lawn for you.

3. Install outdoor lights

Just as much as long grass makes your home a target, so too does a dimly lit, or not lit at all property. Darkness is one way that burglars like to conceal their activities, another reason why most theft happens at night. Prevent this by keeping your home well-lit with outdoor lights. If you don’t want to keep lights on outside your house for a continuous period of time, maybe try some motion-sensor lights that will spook would-be intruders as they approach your property!
