Kampala is seemingly becoming a fast-paced place day by day, so ensuring the security of our homes cannot be taken lightly today more than ever.
So protecting our loved ones and valuable possessions requires more proactive measures from installing modern security systems to exploring some simple yet effective home security tips to truly feel safe in our happy place.
Here are some modern security tips we should embrace that many people around the world have adapted to as they help with fast emergency contact, easy safety alerts and remote management.
- Security Guards.
Many of us have adapted to having security guards since their job is to prevent intruders from entering your home premises with their core role being preventing a crime from happening by proactively watching for suspicious behaviour, mitigating risks as they appear and contacting the proper authorities when an incident occurs.
- Technology i.e, Smart Homes
These are not only sustainable but they are also really easy to work with and they include interconnected appliances like surveillance tools, audible sirens, detectors and sensors, door and window locks as well as bells and a central control hub operated through a dedicated mobile phone or gadget.
- Use Curtains
Having curtains, blinds, shades, shutters, or drapes gives you just enough privacy for inside your house and prevents potential burglars from spoting your eye-catching valuables when away.
- Have a Dog.
We cannot overlook man’s best friend who has protected us from the beginning of age since they are good with detection thanks to their extraordinary sense of smell. Potential intruders can only stay away knowing about the presence of a well-trained loyal security dog.
- Gated and Communal Communities.
These are seen to be really secure given before anyone can access or enter the society, they have to pass through the security check point and also the neighbors look out for each other if anything seems suspicious so such communities should be given first priority when house hunting.
- Beware of your surroundings.
Be vigilant to notice any unusual situation or anything amiss, know your neighbors as they will look out for you in your absence and make sure to do a background check of your new house keeper.
- Invest in Burglar proofing and keep your windows and doors locked at night.
It’s better to play safe than to clearly invite the thieves over, so investing in added door and window protection as well as a simple check every night before you go to bed if all the house locks are locked wont hurt.
- Holiday triggers should be avoided.
Keeping your absence at home as private as possible is the smartest thing to do since burglars will never know when is the right time to attack.
These are just some of them so make sure to share this blog with in your communities for safe neighborhoods and peace of mind in our daily lives.
