Best Ways to Secure Your Basement & Keep Burglars Out

Your basement should be a place of safety and security during times when storms are passing through your community. In fact, basements are used for many different things depending on the home from storage to playrooms, bedrooms and more.

Unfortunately, basements may also be quite vulnerable to intruders as well. Any basement that has entranceways and/or windows is subject to intrusion based on their location. The entryways to basements are generally seldom watched or guarded unless someone actually lives in the basement. This makes a basement the perfect place for intruders to enter and find their way inside undetected. What is worse is just how many people overlook this vulnerable area of their home. 

However, there are some steps you can take in order to make your basement more secure and keep intruders away. What follows are just a few suggestions to help you secure your basement and dissuade potential burglars from entering your home. 

Seal Unused Windows: You may not have to go as far as putting up bars, but you will want to seal up the windows that are not being used at all. That way, you won’t have to worry about remembering if they were locked or not. You may want to keep a few windows unsealed to air out the basement from time to time. 

Bar the Door: If you have a door that leads from the basement to the outside of the home, then you will definitely want to secure it. This is especially true if the basement also has an entryway inside the home as well. Putting a simple bar on the inside of the basement door is an excellent way to keep intruders out. Otherwise, you’ll want to use deadbolts and other ways to seal the door, especially if it is seldom used. 

Cover the Windows: By covering up your basement windows, you prevent intruders from peeking in and seeing what you own. You can use drapes for windows that you use and use foil or other covering for windows that you do not use. By keeping potential intruders from seeing what you have, you are dissuading them from entering your basement. 

Motion Lights: Placing motion lights outside the windows or entranceway of the basement also helps keep potential intruders away. This is because those intending to break into your home are not going to want to be seen at night. A motion sensor light will light up the area quickly which can be a real deterrent. 

For those who want to add an additional layer of security to their basement and residence in general, home security systems are now more affordable than ever. Your security system can be tied with CCTV protection and burglary alarms depending on the size of your home and property. 

Plus, you can even tie in an intercom system to communicate with visitors on the outside and connect everyone in the home as well. For more information, contact the professionals at Hulk Security and find out just how affordable home security systems are for your home.
