New homeowners are often excited to personalize their space and get renovating. It is exciting to put your own stamp on your property with fresh paint and unique decor. While customizing your residential or commercial space is often the first place many of us wish to start; Three West Security in Kelowna recommends protecting your property first.
Smart Home Security Solutions
It takes time to get to know your new neighbours and your new neighbourhood or city in general. Moving locations for residential or commercial purposes is a busy and often stressful time. Most of us do not have the luxury of staking out our new digs 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This is where a smart home security system can provide peace of mind. Establishing yourself as a protected residence right from go will help minimize your chances of experiencing theft or damage to your property. Passerby’s will note your security signature with signage or stickers from Three West Security and know that it is not worth their time or effort to try anything illegal at your place.
Doorbell Video Cameras…Ingenuity at Its’ Best!
Imagine not having to go to the door to see who is there. Thanks to the latest technology, our discreet doorbell video cameras can send you a text message every time someone arrives at your residence. Reduce the risk of home invasions or unwanted guests by seeing who is standing on the other side well in advance. Ideal for young families, single dwellers and seniors alike; Three West Security in Kelowna offers a variety of residential and commercial security systems to suit every budget.
Varying Your Routine
Did you know that following a strict schedule can actually make you more of a target? If you continually leave the house at the same times for walking your dog, going to work and grocery shopping; someone else could potentially be taking notice. Three West Security recommends changing things up in terms of habits and your routines to retain maximum safety. Installing motion lights with a timer is a great way to have your exterior illuminated at various times and avoid arriving home to a dark driveway or entryway. Parking your vehicle differently can make your home look as though you are coming and going more frequently. Avoid letting newspapers and junk mail pile up as this is a common signal that you are probably not around.
Secure Your Renovation Equipment
How many times have you seen a neighbours’ table saw set up in their driveway while they were installing new flooring or moulding? Drills, hammers and painting supplies are commonly stored in carports and garages during residential and commercial renovations. A simple trip to Home Depot for more supplies can leave you returning to an empty stockpile. Many renos take more than 24 hours to complete. While it can be tempting to leave your work area “just overnight,” be prepared that someone may be eying up your expensive tools and equipment. Don’t give thieves the chance to rip you off. Three West Security in Kelowna can help ensure that your entire property and perimeter is well protected 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Call us today for a free security evaluation.
