Surprising Security Risks – and How to Protect Your Home in Greater Vancouver and Lower Mainland
You have found the home of your dreams in a safe neighborhood in Greater Vancouver or in the Lower Mainland. Even if you feel confident in the safety of your new home, there are many security risks that homeowners often do not consider. The best way to protect your family, assets, and home is to install a home security system in Vancouver from trusted professionals. You can enjoy peace of mind knowing that your property is secure and is being monitored by professionals no matter where you are.
3 Risky Areas of Your Vancouver Home
You may be surprised that your home isn’t as secure as you thought. Keep these areas in mind that could be targeted by burglars:
- Garage: If the door is closed, you may think it is secure. Think again. Many homes with an attached garage are targeted by thieves as an easy access point. Local hardware and department stores often sell remote openers that can be programmed to open your garage. Install a mechanical lock that can be locked at night when the family is home or when you have gone away on vacation.
- Windows: Floor level windows or those that lead onto the roof can be tempting entry points for thieves, especially during warmer months when they are left open or unlocked. Keep screens in place and remember to lock your windows before leaving the home. You may also consider trimming the trees surrounding your Vancouver home, as they could be climbed and provide a burglar with access into a nearby window.
- Attic: If your roof can be easily accessed, your attic has vents that usually make it fairly easy for a burglar to enter your home. Install a fixed vent with louvers that do not rotate as well as metal netting to keep thieves and pests out of your attic and home.
