Crimsafe beats a burglar

Home security tips from Activate Security, leading Brisbane installer and manufacturer of Crimsafe Security Screens. Your home contains valuables that are very attractive to potential burglars. Follow some of our tips below to keep your home safe and keep burglars out.

  1. On extended trips or holidays leave your car in the driveway. Ask a neighbour to move it about from time to time.
  2. Peepholes in exterior doors are important so you can see who is outside. Don’t rely on a chain – they break easily.
  3. Motion-detecting outdoor floodlights are a great deterrent. Make sure they’re out of reach though so they cannot be disabled.
  4. Invest in high-quality deadbolt locks for all exterior doors.
  5. Keep copies of the key near the deadbolt locks so family members can escape easily in case of fire.
