Securing Your Home from a Break-In

by | Feb 10, 2022 | Strauss Security

As the world is shifting and changing around us, our homes have become even more of a safe haven. Not only are they the place we lie our heads at night, but for many of us our homes have become our offices, school rooms, and the place we spend the majority of our waking hours. The thought of someone invading this sacred space is a scary thing. Strauss Security Solutions is here with the tools you need to secure your home.

Camera and Security System warnings

You may want to consider installing security cameras to your home to not only deter a break-in, but to provide evidence to law enforcement in the event they need to catch an intruder. Strauss offers a wide range of video surveillance solutions for your home, from cameras to digital video recorders that give you optimum surveillance protection. You can even install a doorbell security camera. 

You will also want to make sure that it is known you have cameras on the premises. One study that surveyed over 400 incarcerated burglars found that security system signage was one of the top 10 deterrents when selecting a home to break into. A simple sign indicating there are active cameras could prevent emotional and financial distress for you and your family.

Automated home system

Thieves are attracted to homes where no one appears to be home. Make it appear as though someone is home at all times by installing a smart home automation system to set sensors to turn on lights when doors are open or if your security systems detects a possible intruder or have light settings alternate while you’re away on vacation to deter burglars. 

Another option is to purchase one of our smart locks connected to a monitored security system.  This added security is a proactive defense against unlawful entry and can trigger a notification text or email alert to you when a smart lock door is opened.  This feature is greatly beneficial for parents of latch key kids arriving home from school, which will give you peace of mind by allowing you to monitor all access remotely even if away from your home.

High Security Keys and Locks

Don’t let just anyone duplicate your keys! Incorporate high security keys which include a patented key control system that makes it difficult for someone to duplicate key without the proper permission. For an even greater level of security, visit our showroom to see that high security cylinders, locks, deadbolts, knobs and levers that we have available to secure your home.

In the unfortunate event that someone is able to enter your home, you can rest assured that your precious belongings are protected.  Strauss has a wide selection of home safes to suit your needs.
