Home security tips to enhance winter home security

Don’t check in or reveal your location on social media

Many people that don’t have security systems installed do a really bad mistake and share photos or do check-ins on social media with their location. Burglars that plan to invade your house probably know you and your assets and when they see that you are not home, they can plan and implement their theft.

Clear Snow and Ice Covered Pathways

From your driveway, to your sidewalk and other pathways, snow is a fluffy threat of slippery instances waiting to happen. Be sure to clear these walking and driving areas of snow, as well as take care of the ice beneath it. Evenly spreading road salt along these areas, after snow blowing or shoveling away snow. This will allow the ice to melt, without instantly re-freezing. Consistently maintaining this snow removal, salt laying process will greatly increase the safety of getting around outside in Pittsburgh’s winter season.

Install or Update Home Security Systems

Since many homeowners are away visiting family, stocking up on holiday gifts, or heading off to bed early as nightfall lasts longer, people are also getting robbed more often. And homes without security systems set up are three times more likely to be intruded upon. Installing a security system in your home will immensely increase the overall security of your home. If you already have a security system installed, upgrading the system to the latest version will provide even more peace of mind that your home is break-in-proof and fully secure.

Replace Your Home’s Old Windows
