There are many different dangers to your house and in order to protect your house from all of these dangers, you will need to know what areas provide the most dangers and need your attention. If you can identify the dangerous areas and increase the security measures that protect these areas, you will be able to increase the overall security level of your house. You can also completely eliminate some of these dangers by installing security equipment in these areas. This article will identify some of the dangerous areas and will list steps that you can take to protect yourself from these dangers.

A lot of danger is coming from your doors and windows. If you have a weak door and insecure locks, a burglar will be able to break in through your door. In order to prevent this, you need to install good locks on your door and make sure that your door is strong and secure. Your windows present even more danger. The main reason for this is the fact that windows are made of glass and are much easier to break. This is especially true about the first floor windows, since they are much easier to access then the second floor windows.

There are steps you can take to protect your windows and increase the level of your security. For example, you can install enforced type of glass into your windows. This glass is much harder to break, as compared to the regular glass. By installing the enforced glass, you are reducing a risk that a robber will be able to break the glass to get into your house. It is generally a good idea to install a second layer of glass (double glass). This will even serve a double purpose by adding insulation to your house and keeping it warm in winter. Also, the locks on the windows need to be secure and hard to open. To add extra protection to your house, you can install motion detectors near your doors and windows. It is also important to mention that if you have glass sliding doors, they present a lot of danger to your house. You should make sure that they are made of at least the double layer of enforced glass. Also, you need to make sure that these doors cannot be pushed in by moving them out of the tracks. A good patio door lock may help you to prevent this. A motion detector and an alarm panel (at least a fake one) should also be installed near the glass doors.

It is also important to identify other areas that robbers may try to use to get into your house. You garage door is one of these areas. Robbers my try to break into your garage and then use the inside garage door to get into the house. There are three things that you may do to prevent this. First of all, you need to enforce your garage door and make sure it is protected and secure. Also, you need to install good door locks on the inside door that connects your garage with your house. This inside door should also be enforced. The last step is to make sure that your alarm system also protects your garage. For example, you can install motion detectors in your garage that will trigger the alarm before someone has a chance to open the inside garage door.

Other areas that robbers may try to use to get into your house include your roof. For example, robbers my try to climb to your roof and use it to get to your top floor windows, which in turn can be used to get into your house. What you can do to prevent this is to make sure that your top floor windows are protected as much as the first floor windows. Same techniques that were described above for the first floor windows can be used for top floor windows. Also, if you have ladders outside of your house, robbers my use these ladders to climb to the second floor windows and try to brake in through them. This is why it is so important to lock your ladders in the shed when you are not using them.
