Home Security in Wisconsin

Wisconsin MapIn Wisconsin, there are more than 24,000 burglaries reported in a typical year, with the chances of residents becoming a victim of property crime at 1 in every 46 people. There are several steps people in Wisconsin can take to increase their home security and better safeguard themselves, their property, and their loved ones.

One easy way to protect property both from intruders and invited-yet-nosy house guests (such as babysitters, housekeepers, and repairmen) is a home safe. High-quality, inexpensive home safes are available at many retailers and are a good solution for protection of jewelry, vital documents, cash, and other valuable items. For maximum security, safes should be bolted down to the floor or shelving in a location other than the master bedroom and closet.

Another simple way to increase home security is to reinforce doors and windows. The most secure doors have a solid core, heavy-duty deadbolts, and sturdy frames that will resist being kicked in. Because most window latches are flimsy, backing them up with wooden dowels (in horizontally-sliding window tracks) or other brackets can give added protection. Of course, homeowners should remember to close and lock all doors and windows before they leave, as a significant number of burglaries are discovered to have been made possible by open entry points.

However, one of the most common ways that people in Wisconsin are protecting their homes and families is through the use of home security systems. Residents appreciate the peace of mind that comes from having 24/7 monitoring of their alarm systems, including window sensors and smoke detectors. Experts in home security can easily help Wisconsin residents to determine which features are best for their individual needs - such as remote technology to control alarms, doors, and even thermostats via smartphone or other devices - at packages they can afford.
