It’s one thing to lovingly celebrate the home you’ve spent time developing, decorating and even sometimes extending. It’s another thing to take a few moments to ensure the safety and longevity of your property from all angles. If done properly this will give your home more of a lifespan to celebrate and ensure the integrity of the place you shelter your family in.
This doesn’t mean you need to break the bank in exchange for peace of mind. Keep a few smart strategies in mind, invest in a few materials, and you’ll both come to a real sense of stability in the home you live in, but also understand the deeper levels of how your property is your property.
Setup a CCTV system
Most people feel having a CCTV system is overkill, but it’s really not. If you live in an area that’s built up you have to be prepared for all eventualities. It doesn’t have to be a traumatic event that’s prevented, but something as simple as identifying who accidentally knocked over your driveway fence as they were turning their vehicle around.
Neither do you need a state of the art system with all the bells, whistles and an anti-spy laser grid. One security camera covering the main entrance is all you really need, and most security experts recommend this. You can set cameras to only begin recording once they detect motion too, so a home server isn’t required to record unnecessary footage.
