We all want peace of mind, but with busy lives and schedules, it can be hard to come by. At Post Alarm Systems, your trusted home security provider, we do everything we can to help homeowners get closer to their personal peace of mind goals. True, the worries of life go above and beyond home security – but with your loved ones safe inside the home, it can be easier to focus on the other tasks ahead of you.
One of the ways we do this is by offering smart locks. Smart locks are keyless, electronic locks for your home’s doors. We recommend a minimum investment of smart locking your:
The idea that intruders only enter through an open window is a misconception. You’d be amazed how many burglars and violent criminals use the most obvious entry point in the home: the front door. With smart locks, they will have a much harder time doing it. What about windows? Although they aren’t compatible with smart locks, sensors can be placed on windows so that homeowners will know whenever a window is opened or an alarm activation is associated with window entry.
The back door that leads to the kitchen or living room is another portal of preference for home intruders. They count on the homeowner not putting as much thought into securing the back door, and many times they are correct. You can prove them wrong by securing the back door with a keyless locking system that only gives access to people who know the code or who are let in when you unlock the door with your smartphone app.
First things first: The garage door should always be closed and locked. In Southern California, home security often depends on the garage being secured because many homeowners enjoy using their garage as a “man cave” or a place for kids to gather. This is fine, so long people with bad intentions don’t see the open door of your garage as an actual “open door policy” for them. You can send them the right message by controlling your garage door with a smart device that opens, closes, and sends notifications if the door has been left open for a certain amount of time – a big help for those of us who forget to close it!
Total peace of mind may be difficult to achieve in our busy lives, but securing your home with smart locks can be a great first step. To learn more about smart locks for your front door, back door and garage door, contact Post Alarm Systems. We will be glad to answer your questions!
