When a lion hunts, you will notice something very interesting: Lions will target the easy prey. They are quick to notice the easy prey, by chasing down the entire herd and finding out which wildebeest or gazelle is not keeping up with the rest. That is the one on which they will focus and will take home for the rest of the family to eat.
It is pretty much the same with criminals. They target the easy prey. You have probably heard before that a criminal will find a way into your house if they really want to. But you can be sure that they will rather enter a house that is easier to break into than a house protected with visible security gates and window protections. There are other ways to add extra protection against break-ins.
A Security Gate Separating the Bedrooms from the Rest of the House
If you have a security gate, keeping the rest of the house separate from the bedrooms, a criminal will think twice about waking you to demand your keys and your wallet. Spending more time than is necessary in your house is not in his best interest. You can prepare better while he is struggling with another security barrier. This way you can feel more secure about the safety of you and your family during the time of the day you are not alert to danger.
You have probably seen the advertisement on television. A woman is working in her garden, a man approaches her with malicious intentions and she runs for her front door, slamming the security gate in his face and he can’t do a thing to open it. The message is clear. When you need security the most, you do not want to first take some time out to find the right key for the security gate. You need that gate locked as quickly as possible, and that is why slam-lock security gates are so popular.
Don’t Show Off For the Jones’s to See
The Jones’s might be jealous of your amazing big screen television, which is clearly visible through your living room window but you are also advertising just how much you own to all the burglars in the world. Keep your valuables hidden from nosy neighbours and other annoyances.
Be sharp, be safe, and be aware of how your house comes across to a potential thief.
