Melbourne Home Security: 8 Tips for a Safe Home with Volt Pro Electrical, Licensed Security Installers

Your home is your sanctuary, and protecting it is paramount. At Volt Pro Electrical, we understand the importance of creating a safe and secure living environment for you and your loved ones. That’s why we’re here to share eight essential home security tips that everyone can benefit from.

  1. Illuminate Your Exterior: Illuminate your home’s exterior with motion-activated lights powered by energy-efficient LED bulbs. These lights not only deter intruders but also ensure clear visibility around your property, especially during the night.
  2. Secure Entry Points: Your doors and windows are the primary entry points for intruders. Make sure they are equipped with sturdy locks and consider installing deadbolts for added security. Additionally, reinforce sliding doors and windows with security bars or locks to prevent forced entry. You could also consider installing smart locks for convenient access control and peace of mind.
  3. Install a Home Security System: Take your home security to the next level with a monitored security system. From basic alarms to advanced smart systems, we offer a range of solutions tailored to your needs. Our licensed security installers will set up your system for optimal performance and provide ongoing support.
  4. Trim Overgrown Bushes and Shrubs: Overgrown vegetation can provide cover for intruders and obscure visibility around your property. Keep bushes and shrubs trimmed to eliminate hiding spots and maintain clear sightlines from the street and neighboring properties.
  5. Secure Your Garage: Don’t overlook your garage when it comes to home security. Keep garage doors locked and closed when not in use, and install a garage door sensor or smart opener for added protection. Our licensed security installers will ensure your garage is secure and integrated with your overall home security system.
  6. Use Timers for Lights: If you’re away from home, use timers to control lights and create the illusion of occupancy. This can deter potential intruders by making it appear as though someone is home, even when you’re not.
  7. Be Mindful of Social Media: Avoid sharing your travel plans or posting about being away from home on social media. Broadcasting your absence can make your home a target for burglars. Instead, wait until you’ve returned home to share your holiday photos and experiences.
  8. Stay Connected with Neighbours: Building strong relationships with your neighbours can be an effective way to enhance home security. Look out for one another, share information about suspicious activity, and consider forming a neighbourhood watch group for added protection.
