Getting into your home can be easy. Many burglaries do not even need to force their way in. The most common entry points are the front door, window, or garage. This is why it is very important to keep these entry points always secure. For windows, it can be very simple. Here are some ways you can secure your home windows.
Mind the locks
Always keep the windows locked. It can start as simple as this. Even windows that seem too small to fit a person, these can still be a flaw in your overall home security. Always keep all windows locked with good quality locks. You do not want to be cheap with your home locks, and the same is true with windows. A good quality window lock makes a big difference.
Cover it up
It is advisable to have curtains or blinds for each window. Something that can obstruct the view into your home. Avoid having expensive items, like paintings or electronics , viewable from outside your home. This is a big temptation for thieves.
Reinforce the glass
You may want to invest in reinforcing your glass. Either by installing shatter-proof glass, or applying protective film on the glass. This will help avoid burglars and thieves from breaking in through the glass. Window security screens are also a good option for this. As are bars or grills that can help protect your windows.
Help from nature
A simple deterrent is also naturally available. Try planting thorny plants by the window. This restricts access and movement by your windows, which can discourage. It may seem silly, but a little help from nature can help.
Let there be light
Avoid dark corners and places would be criminals can hide in. Illuminate the different areas around your home, and by your windows with lights. Keep it bright so there will be no places to hide.
