There’s no arguing that windows are an essential element of every home. They filter in sunlight and provide great views of the outdoors. But windows also serve as an entry point into your home and must be secured in order to protect you and your family. Window security is critical, as it provides a first line of defense against home intruders.
Windows are left open or unlocked at a much higher rate than doors, making them an easy target for intruders. Without question, ground floor windows are the most accessible, but second and third floor windows are still easily reached by climbing on trees, fences or balconies. So how can you protect your home? Keep reading for suggestions and tips on the best ways to implement window security.
With all the window security devices available, protecting your windows is relatively easy. You just need to determine which option works best for your home.
When putting together home security systems or safety plans keep in mind that the best defense is education, planning and preparation!
