More than having the right security systems for your home in Greenville NC, there’s still a lot that you can do to make your home even safer. Working in security for both home and property owners for over 50 years, we’ve picked up a few things. To help you with your security measures, here are 3 more security hacks for you to try.

1. Strengthen Your Sliding Doors with Metal Bars

While they can be a great design choice for your Greenville, NC home, sliding doors can pose major home security hazard. For any sliding glass doors, patio doors, or sliding windows, place a metal bar along the bottom track of the door or window. This bar can prevent burglars from forcing the door or window open.

2. Add Interior Door Hinges

Did you know that it was possible for intruders to remove your hinges? By removing the hinge pin, criminals can gain entry into your Greenville, NC home. For optimal security, remove the door and reset the hinges so that they are on the inside of the house. Though this may be a hassle, that simple measure can help prevent a disastrous break-in.

3. Boost Your Window Security

When it comes to home security, you have to think about windows. Burglars often break into homes through ill-protected windows. Protect from this vulnerability with window locks and/or burglar-resistant glass. Installing many small panes of glass instead of one large pain of glass is also a great option.
