CP Tips | Home Security in Cayman

Think of your home security as an onion; the more layers of security, the harder it will be for a burglar to breach your home and steal your belongings. Protect your home and your family with these security tips provided by the experts at The Security Centre.

6 Ways to Keep Your House Safe

1. Install secure gates and fences to protect the perimeter of your home as the first line of defence against a would-be burglar.

2. The use of a CCTV (close-circuit television) system not only offers a strong visual deterrent, it also allows you to monitor what is going on in and around your home. High tech systems allow home owners to keep an eye on their property 24/7, providing an increased sense of security.

3. Motion activated lighting also acts as a deterrent. Burglars are less likely to approach a home if the area is lit up as soon as they move closer. It also gives homeowners time to alert the police if an intruder is spotted.

4. A monitored alarm system is one of the most popular home security measures. A loud, scary alarm is almost guaranteed to send a burglar running. You don’t even have to call the police since a monitored system will automatically alert them. Panic buttons can also be installed just in case your home is breached. Monitored systems can start for as low as CI$379, plus an annual monitoring fee.

5. Home Automation can also be a fantastic security feature, especially when the house is empty in the evening or you are on holiday. Set the timer so lights come on and the blinds come down when it gets dark.

6. Install high tech locks on your doors and windows. Look for brands such as Mul-T-Lock which offer keys that are impossible to clone and locks that are impossible to breach.
