The crime statistics in South Africa are a worry to anyone living in the country.
However, there are plenty of ways to help make your family safer. We take a closer look at the key ingredients for ensuring that your home is secure.
Install the right alarm system for your lifestyle
One of the least intrusive ways to protect your home is to install a decent alarm system. The good news is that there are plenty of different options to get your home secured.
Sensors or beams in your home will trigger the alarm if anyone moves inside while the system is armed. You can opt to have these placed just in certain areas that you want to protect the most or all over the house. Additionally, you can set up your system in such a way that you can choose which sensors to activate and when. This means that you can have sensors on in your bedroom while you’re out, but not while you’re sleeping.
If you have pets that wander through your home while your alarm is on, you can get pet-friendly beams. These are designed to either register the movement as being from something smaller than a human, or are positioned so that they scan above the average height of a dog.
