Make a fortress at your house

As soon as you turn the key in the door – portes asfaleias – of the house and enter, you feel a relieving feeling of relaxation and intimacy flooding you. Your home is your refuge and your need to feel safe and protected there is non-negotiable. But how do you feel safe when you are constantly learning about burglaries in the neighborhood and statistics confirm that thefts are frequent and increased?

With all this, shielding the house against burglars is one way. That is why we offer you a series of solutions that can be implemented, depending on the condition of each house. And if the cost of the whole process seems high to you, Alpha Bank Home Renovation loan, with its favorable terms will give you all the tools you need to complete this demanding project.

Aluminum frames

It is no secret that burglars prefer to invade a house from the terraces. They usually choose the back rooms, which are not visible from main streets that have more traffic. However, there are many cases where the main balcony door of the living room can become a target, if it serves their escape plan.

If your property is relatively new then it will have aluminum frames. If not then there is an absolute need to apply modern solutions to the windows of the house. You need frames that offer greater security than the old wooden constructions or from frames that were chosen mainly with aesthetic criteria and not as a security measure of the house.

Safety door

The security against the burglars offered by the modern aluminum frames is completed by a security door. You may think that the main entrance of your house has a door that locks well. However, “locking well” is not enough. Experts point out that there is no door or lock that can not be broken by burglars. So you need to upgrade your home security.

This can be done with a quality security door. Such a door does not simply lock with a security lock and some firearms. The door you need has reinforced shielding, multiple locking points and latch, latest generation lock, panoramic eye, frame that is built for maximum security and at the same time offers sound and heat insulation, while it is impeccably aesthetically pleasing to improve the appearance of your home. You will find all kinds of safety doors in!

Alarm system

Experts point out that the alarm in a house is a deterrent to a burglary. The more visible the alarm from the outside of the house, the better. This means that there should be boxes and lights that give the impression that the house has an alarm and is active. Thus, burglars will be discouraged and will look for an easier target.

Your property may already have an alarm, so you may feel safe. But the truth is that alarm technology has come a long way. State-of-the-art alarm systems have cameras that record everything that happens in the house or in specific rooms.

The image from the security cameras even reaches your mobile phone so you can see what is happening in your home at any time. With your mobile phone, you can also activate the alarm in case you have forgotten it, leaving. For even greater security you can contact a private security company so that when the alarm goes off they can rush to your home to check what is happening.

Invest in your security

It is certain that the cost of shielding your home from burglars is quite high. However, the cost is not prohibitive and certainly taking effective measures for the safety of yourself and your family is very important.

Safety tips

For example it is a smart idea to have a safe. Even better if the safe is built-in and “hidden” so that it does not aim. There you can hide jewelry, money and other valuables or items that you do not want to be exposed. By placing the media in a state-of-the-art safe (for example with an electronic lock) you add another level of security to what you consider important to you.

By shielding your home from burglars, you are at the same time creating a more modern home, while at the same time upgrading your quality of life. A safe house is a shelter in which you can feel more relaxed and more calm.
