Essential Home Security Upgrades
Home security has always been an important consideration when building or moving into a new property. Our homes are personal spaces so the thought of an unwanted intruder being able to gain entry when we’re present or otherwise is distressing.
For that reason, there are several security upgrades that you should at least consider – in turn making your home as secure as it can possibly be. In this article, we’ll outline several of these upgrades leaving you to pick the ones which might be right for you and your family.
Simple yet effective, our external doors do a great job in allowing entry to a home’s inhabitants but keeping out everyone and everything else. With that said, there are times when this line of defence is overcome which can cause untold misery.
To reduce the chances of this happening, an upgrade to security doors is a perfect way to improve the security of your home.

To complement your new security doors, why not consider matching security screens? They can be easily fitted to the outside face of your homes doors which allow you to speak to guests without having to expose your home and make yourself vulnerable.
In addition, most of these screens also double up as fly screens, perfect for keeping out some of Australia’s animal and insect based eco system who you would rather remain outside.
Last of all, you are sure to be able to find a security screen design to match your new security doors as well as the aesthetics of your home.
A CCTV system is a great way to keep an eye on the external perimeter of your home. The technology has come a long way in recent years providing you with a crisp and clear image which can be used to identify anyone on your property.
You can also go so far as to install a PA system in conjunction with your CCTV, allowing you to communicate from the safety of your home with anyone outside.
The right fencing system installed to the perimeter of your property is a great way to keep intruders out. You’re able to choose both the height and type of fence you have installed, ensuring maximum security whilst still being attractive and matching the appearance of your homes environment.
- You will often find that there are several types of fence to choose from, from palisade fencing to a simple chain link fence.
- It is always a good idea to seek further advice before having a security fence installed as some fences may be subject to restrictions by your local authority.
With the aforementioned upgrades, your home will become a secure fortress with any unwanted intruder having a hard time of gaining entry. Just the ticket for keeping your family safe and providing you with peace of mind.
