Your home is your castle and we would like to help you keep your loved ones and valuables secure. Take preventive measures and don’t wait till someone breaks into your home.

Install a good deadbolt

One of the cheapest and most effective ways to keep your home from being burglarized is to install a high-security lock. The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) rates door locks using three different grades to help identify the durability of a deadbolt Lock. We recommend ANSI Grade 1 for exterior residential door locks. In order to be ANSI Grade 1 locks must withstand a minimum of 250,000 cycles and 10 door strikes. Call a Miami locksmith today and they’ll install a deadbolt for you or you can do it yourself if you have the know how.

Get a stronger door

Not all doors are alike. Doors come in all different shapes and sizes but the way the door opens is the first thing you should be looking for. In order to prevent someone from kicking down your door, you should have a door that opens outward. You can also further secure your home by buying a metal door that has been reinforced with special materials. A costly measure to take but will make sure that your family is safe. This is the first and most common place a burglar will try to get inside your home.

Security Cameras

Having a recording of someone breaking into your home might not guarantee that they will get caught but if a burglar sees a camera chances are they’ll think twice before picking your home. A good camera system can be connected to your phone so that you can watch your home from wherever you are. You can also have a camera system that is setup to send you notifications when someone is around your home. Modern security camera systems have motion sensing capabilities that can be setup to your needs. If you need someone to install and setup your camera system we would be more than happy to assist you with that.

Get a safe installed!

If a burglar does manage to get inside your home having a safe is a great way to protect your priceless belongings. There are plenty of different types of safes available depending on what you are storing and how much protection you need. There are plenty of things to look for when getting a safe installed including Safe wall thickness, Rating System, Electronic keypad locks and Anti-Drive. Some examples of features include a Fire Proof Safe, Gun Safe, Jewelry Safe, Deposit Safe as well as GSA Class 5 certified Safe

Get a Dog

A puppy might chew on your favorite show every once in a while but when he grows older he’ll be one of the best alarm systems. If you have a large Dog outside of your home chances are a burglar will think twice before jumping your fence. Even a small dog is often more effective than an alarm system. They are not only man’s best friend but can also alert you if someone is near your door. If you’re low on cash you can even go to the shelter and adopt a dog. You will be gaining a loving companion and also an additional method of keeping you safe.
