5 Security Tips For A New Homeowner

Becoming a new homeowner can be an exciting time for you and your family. Don’t let that joy and special moment be stolen or ruined by a home intrusion. The team at Sevan Locks And Doors understand the importance of protecting what is most important to you – your family. Seattle-based, they also provide assistance to surrounding areas. Don’t let your new home go unprotected

1. Become Familiar With The Area And Your Neighbors 

One of the best ways to protect your family and your new home is to become familiar with the areas you are now living in. By exploring the area, you will better understand the potential dangers that you will want to watch for or protect your home and family from.

Also, by getting to know your neighbors, you will have extra sets of eyes on your home whether you are there or not. Your neighbors may also have insight into what to watch for in your new neighborhood, as well as what security measures have worked best for them. 

2. Change All Of Your Locks

When purchasing a new home, it is recommended to change all of your home’s locks. This is crucial because you just can never be certain who exactly may have an extra key from the previous owner(s) and may just have access. 

Another good tip is to reconfigure your garage door, too. When it comes to the safety and security of your new home and your family, there really should be no room left for chance. These steps will also provide you and your family a little more peace of mind knowing that everything is new and has been changed.

3. Invest In A Home Security System

A security system for your a new homeowner is a great investment. Security systems are great for reporting when there is a break-in, as well as deterring would-be burglars from even attempting to enter your home. 

While security systems can be installed by a homeowner, it is usually a good idea to have a professional install them. By hiring a professional, you will get guaranteed service and repair, as well as have someone who can better maneuver the system around your new home's existing wiring and plumbing. 

4. Invest In Additional Outdoor Lighting

Criminals usually like to stick to the shadows and commit crimes in the later hours of the evening. So, having a little extra lighting around your home is never a bad idea.

 You don’t want light so bright that it bothers your neighbors or disturbs your own home after dark. However, you do want some light to illuminate those dark corners that a criminal could use to remain hidden. 

5. Do A Thorough Home Check 

Before the purchase of your home, you most likely have already done a walkthrough of it. It is always a good idea to do this again once you move in. This allows you to spot any minor issues or repairs before they gain too much ground and become a bigger problem.
