2 Security Features Your Home Needs to Help Prevent Burglaries
The right burglary prevention system can help protect your home while you’re away
Contrary to popular opinion that most burglaries occur at night, many home burglaries occur in broad daylight in the middle of the day. Intruders want to limit their risk of encountering someone, so they strike during the day when many people are at work.
So how can you protect your home even when you’re not there? To begin, we recommend updating your security system with a smart solution by Lowitt Alarms. Our systems offer the latest technological features like mobile alerts and remote access via smartphone or tablet. Our experts can help you design and install a custom burglary prevention system to meet your security needs. Continue reading to learn two features we recommend to keep your home safe from intruders.

1. Smart Door Locks
Many burglars break into homes through the front door — either by walking right through an unlocked door, finding a spare key hidden nearby or picking a simple door lock. Other common entry points are back, side and garage doors. You may think that windows are a bigger security risk because they’re easily breakable, but your doors are just as vulnerable. Many burglars will try to enter through a doorway before making a loud noise by smashing a window.
Smart locks can help protect your home because you’ll receive a notification on your phone the second someone tries to tamper with the locks. And because smart locks enable keyless entry, you can eliminate the need to copy physical keys and leave a spare one hidden where a burglar might find it.
Additionally, you’ll be able to access your smart locks via an app on your smartphone or tablet, so you can remotely check to make sure every door is locked and lock any doors that aren’t. Even just locking your doors may be enough of an obstacle to deter an intruder.
2. A Professional Monitoring Service
Home invaders make it their business to know how to sneak into an empty house quickly and without notice. That means it’s unlikely neighbors or passersby will be able to detect someone breaking into your house while you’re gone.
