If you want to make your home more secure for your family and your valuable belongings, then you should know that you can easily do that without overspending! Here you will find several useful and cheap ways to take your home’s security a mile further, and to keep burglars at bay: 

1. Invest In Door And Window Alarms 

Nowadays, many homeowners are tempted to believe that a home security system will drain their bank accounts, when the truth is that you can easily burglar-proof your home for under $100. The first thing you need to do when trying to make your home safer and more secure is to make sure your windows and doors are properly locked – there are countless cheap wireless alarms that you can add to your windows, that are automatically activated whenever the doors or windows are opened.

There are two types of door and window alarms: the ones that are activated by glass breaking (which usually come with a hefty price tag) and those that are activated by opening the doors and windows, the latter being a lot cheaper.

2. Add Timers To Your Home Appliances And Your Interior Lights

Timers can not only save you money on your monthly energy bills by automatically switching off your TV, your home theater system or your interior lights when you are not at home, but they can also add to the overall security of your home by making thieves believe that you are at home. There are numerous digital light timers that you can easily program remotely – even when you are out of town!

3. Never Underestimate The Efficacy Of A Heavy-Duty Strike Plate!

Nowadays, many homeowners tend to focus too much on burglar-proofing their windows, when instead they should pay more attention to the entry door, as that is the main point of access for the burglars. All you have to do to reinforce it is to add a heavy-duty strike plate that will certainly give you some peace of mind over the years. You can easily take the matter into your own hands and remove your old strike plate, only to replace it with a newer and thicker one.

4. Don't Forget About Your Patio Doors

Your patio doors need to be secured as well, especially since they are the easiest ones to break – this is why in addition to the door alarm, you should also consider opting for high-end, commercial-grade patio door locks, as they are the most difficult ones to pick.

5. Door Bars And Chains

If you are serious about keeping your home and family safe, then you can always opt for door bars and door chains, in addition to the bolt locks. This will make it so difficult for the burglars to break into your house that they will quit before they even try!

So consider these five easy and cheap ways to boost your home’s security on a budget. If you
do not want to take any chances, then you can always opt for state of the art security doors, security screens and interior shutters, such as those offered by Peace of Mind Security Screens at
