Burglary Prevention Advice for Landlords

Security is the most important factor you have to take into consideration. A poorly or improperly functioning door or window lock and key can easily compromise the security of a building as well as the safety of its occupants.

Secure the main entrance

It is safer to install a double-cylinder deadbolt on your door entrance, rather than a single-cylinder deadbolt. A double-cylinder deadbolt can prevent a thief from reaching through the window and operating your door. For security, tenants’ doors should have door jammers, chain locks. You should also install intercom systems or peepholes, so they can communicate with the person outside without having to open the door. At Keychange we install solid wood doors, and security upgrades, to better improve the safety of your main entrances.

Install a security system

A security system often seems like a huge investment, but it can help you to fully secure your property. We can help you install efficient and inexpensive security cameras so you can easily monitor the property without having to drive there. We can also help you install a security alarm system such as ADT or Frontpoint, wired into all the apartments.

Hire a property manager

You should constantly maintain and upgrade your locks and security systems to ensure that your tenants are secured. This may be difficult if you live far away from the rental property. Hire a property manager to take care of any issues that may arise. When there is someone constantly checking and present on the premises, it will deter intruders from invading your property.

Ensure Window Security

Although most windows are fitted with locking systems, a burglar can still easily break the window and climb through. We recommend that you install window sensors that will sound an alarm if your window is tampered with. At Keychange, our sensors will even send an alarm to your smart phone so you’ll know immediately when your rental property is in Jeopardy. You can also easily reduce burglary attempts by installing locks, and security bars on your windows. This will make the intruder think twice before attempting to break in.

Add Proper Lighting

To discourage burglars from entering your home, install motion-sensing lights near the main entrances of your rental property. You don’t need more than a couple of motion-sensing lights since they can detect movements in all direction. Also make sure that all the hallways and staircases are brightly lit and replace burnt out bulbs immediately. Here at Keychange Locksmiths, our motion-sensing lights are solar powered, so you don’t have to worry about replacing their batteries or using electricity.

The Importance of Lock Maintenance and Security Upgrades

Without the right level of maintenance your homes will decay and your windows will lose their energy efficiency. As a result, you have to constantly change your windows and doors. If you have an old UPVC window, new ones will benefit from upgraded glass and frames. You also have the choice of glass to use.

Doors need to be maintained to ensure that the seals and fittings, fit correctly into the frame for efficiency. The level of protection offered by your doors and windows need to meet up with the requirement of your home insurance policy. Otherwise your insurance policy can be annulled and your claims rejected.

At Keychange Locksmiths all our windows and doors have an added security features as standard. We only fit good quality windows and doors, with security and energy efficiency as standard.
