The average budget tends to be slightly hesitant to taking on the challenge of an expensive home security system. There are less expensive options for those of you who would like to make your home a safer place, without emptying out your bank account. The first step is to focus on the areas of the home that are subject to breaking and entering; doors and windows.
Windows are only as safe as their locks are. For example, if your window is secured by a cheap sash lock, an intruder can break in by simply smashing the window or cutting a hole and using his hand to unlock the window from the inside. Keyed locks may seem difficult for personal use, but they offer much more safety. For greater protection, consider installing electronic security shutters. The main concern people have with security shutters are that they limit escape due to a fire, but new technology has made fire escapes much easier.
