The investment in windows and safety features for them can help amplify protection. Here is how to improve your home’s security.

Are You Vulnerable?

Walk around the outside of your home. Imagine trying to break into the home. Where are the most likely entry points? This starts with the doors of the home. But, it also includes any first-floor windows. Someone may be able to approach the home, remove a screen, and push open the window. This gives them easy access to the home. And, they may be able to do it very quickly.

The first step to take is to lock your windows. If you do not have them open, there is no benefit to not keeping them locked. It only takes a moment to do so. This simple step will make the biggest impact.

Minimizing Risk

There are other steps to take to minimize risks. Windows can be a danger to a home, but they are necessary. You can improve their safety in several key ways.

  • Look for signs of damage. Remove and replace broken windows. This is a safety risk for various reasons.
  • Replace missing or broken screens. Screens can offer some protection. If they do not slide or pull off, thieves are less likely to try to enter into the window.
  • Keep windows covered. You do not need to allow people to simply see into your home. If they do not know what is in it, they are less likely to break into your home.
  • Use smart home technology. Sensors on the window can help. They alert you when someone opens the window. This type of technology is readily available today.
  • Consider a high-end security system. These also use sensors. They include monitoring services. If someone opens a window, the company can log in and see who is at the window. This can help reduce your risks when you are not at home.

Theft is a type of coverage for most home insurance policies. Having this coverage does not mean you should avoid safety for your home. Upgrade your windows. Ensure they offer protection to your home.
