Staying Secure While Remodelling Your Home

When it’s time to upgrade your home’s fittings or make renovations to your space to enhance your home’s overall look and feel, you will need to ensure that your home is secure during the entire remodelling process. When devising your renovation plans, it’s important that you don’t leave your home vulnerable to any security oversights. Uncover the simple ways you can secure your home during a renovation by reading the latest blog from ART Security.

 

Communicate with your contractors: In the process of choosing the right contractor, be sure to do your research and find out what training and credentials they have attained. When you’re ready to hire your qualified servicers, ensure that you take note of how many workers will be assigned to work on your home project and at what times the renovation team will be around. In knowing how many contactors will be onsite and the times that they will be around your home, you will have an easy way to be aware of who has access to your home when.

 

Move your valuables to a safe location: Whether your treasured items include family heirlooms or expensive pieces of decorative art, it’s a good idea to move them into a more secure location during your home renovation. You can relax knowing that your prized possessions are safe from any damage or potential theft. If your items are large and plentiful, consider moving them into a storage cage or leaving them with a trusted friend until the renovations are complete.

 

Light up any renovation areas: Especially if the area you are currently remodelling is outside and is positioned in the dark, it’s a good idea to set up reliable lighting and keep the area well lit. Lighting up your renovation area at night will deter any burglars who will see your home’s renovation as an easy way to seamlessly sneak into your home. Having your renovation area lit up will discourage intruders because any break-in attempts will be clear and visible to onlookers. If you’re conscious about having light continuously running throughout the evening, consider installing a motion sensor light. Motion sensor lights will only turn on if it detects any movement within the area.

 

Set up an alarm monitoring system: An effective alarm monitoring security system setup will help keep you informed on whether there is any inappropriate activity within your renovation area. Of course, to ensure that your security system is truly effective in protecting your home, it’s crucial that your home security system is installed by qualified security experts. At ART Security, our alarm system solutions can immediately notify you so that you can respond hastily to any security intrusions.

Consider installing a key-less entry system to your home: Intercom systems allow for you to permit entry to your home via a video and audio feed from your home’s entrance. In setting up an intercom, you can allow entry to visitors from another onsite location in your home or from a connected mobile device. Intercom systems can also be paired up with an automatic door release so that you can get to know the contractors working on your home and take note of the times that they are around your home. In having a key-less entry, you also won’t have to worry about lending out any keys to contractors to let them have access to your home.
