How to Better Secure Your Home During Spring

The birds are singing and the sun is shining! If you’ve had a sudden boost of energy for completing some home projects, you’re not alone. Spring has always been a popular time for organizing, deep cleaning, and tackling yard work. And it’s also a great time to make your home a more secure, safe place for your family. Here are 5 spring safety tips to check off your list this year:

1. CHECK YOUR LOCKS

Rain can affect your door and window locks, so spring is a great time to make sure they’re all in working order. Make the rounds in every bedroom and doorway to check for stiffness or rusted locks. Lubricate or replace the locks as needed to keep your home safe.

2. TRIM BUSHES

Overgrown bushes put your home more at risk of burglary since they’re a great hideout spot for someone who is lurking around the house. Cutting back your bushes is an easy way to deter crime, and increase the safety of your home. Make sure you cut back your hedges and bushes before they’re in full-bloom so you still get to enjoy the beautiful flowers around your home.

3. INSTALL OUTDOOR LIGHTS

Outdoor lights are an excellent way to deter would-be burglars and are a simple measure you can take to step up the security around your home. Take advantage of the warmer weather by installing motion sensor lights in your doorway, in front of the garage, and in the backyard.

4. FIX DAMAGED FENCING

Extreme weather could damage your fencing by knocking down panels or making the wood more brittle. Check all of your paneling to make sure the fence is secure. If not, you’ll want to replace the panel to keep your home as secure as possible.

5. INSTALL A HOME SECURITY SYSTEM

Even after you’ve checked all of these security measures off the list this spring, you may be looking for more ways to protect your family and upgrade your home. An integrated smart home and home security system is the ultimate way to get the added peace of mind you’re seeking. Combining your services allows you to have 24/7 monitoring that can be completely customized to your needs and managed through your smartphone, tablet, or computer.
