With every New Year comes a determination to make changes. Why not improve the safety of your home? Just a few changes to your habits or lifestyle can drastically improve the control you have over your home security. Here are a few suggestions from Maximum Security to help you out.

Background Checks. Do you hire people to work in and around your home? Whether you’re working with a long-term caretaker, a regular cleaning service, or just hiring a crew to accomplish one specific project, it’s important to know who you’re dealing with. It’s especially important if these people have access to your home while you’re not there. You could be setting yourself up for disaster without even knowing it.

Home Surveillance. Typically people think of hidden cameras when it comes to home surveillance, but in addition to intruders, there are more subtle threats that homeowners need to watch out for. Do you have smoke detectors? How can you tell if there’s been a gas leak? These days, homeowners with smartphones can be on the go and still control all their home monitoring devices, alarms and other surveillances. Take a moment to consider whether this might be a good option for you.

Replacing Locks and Alarms. Outdated alarm systems may not pose a serious challenge to modern technology. Old locks may suffer structural weakening and become easy to break. Don’t rely on obsolete protection as it may be your downfall! Be sure to replace your locks and alarms on a regular basis. The alternative may end up costing you much more than the price of replacing your equipment.
