Home Security for Your New House

Sep 30, 2016|

Moving into a new home can be an exciting adventure, and there are so many steps to getting it all set up. Home security is always a priority, so when writing those to-do lists for everything that needs to be done to make the move smooth and efficient, it should definitely be at the top of the list.

It makes it easier to ensure your home is secure when you choose to install various security gadgets and features dedicated to home security before you ever move in, so your loved ones are protected from the very first night they sleep in your new family home. Here are four ways to set up a safe home that your family will always feel safe in.

1. Install alarms on doors and windows

If you're renovating and replacing your windows and doors, it's a great time to make sure they're set up with a sensor system that alerts you if someone enters or breaks glass, especially if you sleep on a different floor and can't hear it.

2. Choose a video-enhanced doorbell

Install a doorbell with video capability, so before you buzz anyone in or open the door, you know who's on the other side. It's also a great way to teach children to check before opening. Tell them to look at the video screen and make sure it's someone they know before they ever open the door.

3. Make your locks smarter

Choose a smart lock that requires anyone who wants to enter your home to input a number code to gain access. Only those who know the numerical code can enter, and if you feel there's a security risk, you can change the code immediately from anywhere via a smartphone instead of having to wait for a locksmith to change the locks. It's a major time and money saver, and makes you feel safe. Smart locks allow you to give different codes to various individuals so you know who's entering when, and allows you to set up times they're allowed to enter. The dog walker can't enter your home at midnight, just during the window they're expected to come by and walk your furry pal.

4. Install video cameras

Video surveillance from both indoor and outdoor cameras add final layers of security so you know who's inside and around your home, any time of day or night. Intruders can see outdoor cameras as well, acting as a deterrent. An alarm system and surveillance service that watches your house and reacts when there's a threat helps keep you feeling safe whether you're at home or away, so you can watch your house and the security service that guards and protects your family.

Home security is probably the most important investment you can make in your home. Your family can sleep soundly at night knowing they're protected and someone is watching out 24/7. With Vivint's system standing guard, you gain peace of mind that your home is safe at all times.
