CCTV security isnt going to just stop thieves from entering your home. It is a way to warn you when someone is trying to enter your house forcefully, which is why its important to have other security measures like door security to prevent thieves from entering your home.
Not all doors are made to be burglar proof. Just apply enough force to it and youll realize that it doesnt take much to bring down the whole door. You need to install extra accessories so you can reinforce the door and stop burglars from entering forcefully. There are a few accessories you can pick to reinforce your door and here are a few you can try.
The most basic security for your door is an alarm. When someone opens the door without disabling the system, the alarm will go off, informing you or your neighbors that there is an intruder at the door. More advanced alarms can also automatically dial to a security center or to the police whenever there is a break in.
Another good door security is deadbolts. Deadbolts are locks that prevent the door from being opened so easily. Usually the door will have 1-2 deadbolts locking it in place. Having more than that does not prevent the thieves from breaking in but it does slow them down perhaps long enough for you to get help.
You can also install door enforcers to further improve your door security. It can be a metal frame fitted around the frame of the door so the burglar needs to either open the frames lock or break down the whole thing. Another type of door enforcer is a long metal bar that sticks on the ground and hold the door. Both of them prevent thieves from forcefully breaking down your door from the other side.
Adding viewers to the door does help in giving you extra security. The fish eye hole allows you to peek through the door without opening it, allowing you to see who exactly is on the other side. They wont be able to see through the fish hole, so you dont have to worry about them peeking back in.
Avoid having doors with normal glass panes as burglars can break them easily to unlock from the other side. You can use reinforced glass so burglars cannot break the window, but they would still be able to see inside unless you have a thick curtain over it.
Not only do the door security accessories help to reinforce your door, it also has a psychological effect on burglars. They will be tempted to skip your house when they see the door is well reinforced with securities.
Combine a reinforced door with CCTV, your house will be very well guarded against intruders.
