Winter Home Security Tips

Winter can pose unique security challenges for homeowners due to the longer nights and the holiday season. This time of year may increase the risk of burglary, crime, and other security threats. Burglars can take advantage of the added darkness and long nights to break in before homeowners return from work or when residents are on vacation in warmer places. To ensure the safety of your home and belongings during this time, it is crucial to have proper and reliable security measures in place.

One effective way to secure and protect your property is by surrounding it with smart home security. Professional help from a security company like us can help install cameras and set up video surveillance in strategic locations.

Significant Tips for the Winter Home Security System

  • Outdoor Lighting: Proper outdoor lighting is essential during winter when nights are longer. You should consider installing motion-activated lights around the perimeter of your home, especially near entry points. This measure can discourage potential intruders from entering your property and provide better night visibility.
  • Install a Home Security System: A comprehensive home security system can deter burglars. Choose a plan with cameras, sensors, and monitoring. Ensure visibility to warn intruders.
  • Fireplace Safety: If you have a fireplace, ensure it's properly maintained and use safety measures when lighting fires. Use a fire screen to prevent sparks from flying into the room.

  • Temperature Monitoring: Consider installing a smart thermostat to remotely monitor and adjust temperature, saving energy and preventing issues like frozen pipes.
  • Check Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detectors: Ensure all smoke and carbon monoxide detectors are in proper working order, and change batteries if necessary. Test them regularly, especially during winter when heating systems run more frequently.
  • CCTV Installation: Winter can be challenging for home security, but investing in a smart CCTV system can provide peace of mind. With advanced features like night vision, you can monitor your property anywhere, anytime, and in any weather.
  • Smart Door Locks: Connect Security offers a range of smart security solutions, including smart locks and indoor cameras, to protect your home in any season.

I highly recommend this company! They are always quick to resolve any issue or question I may have. The techs are friendly, quick, and always on time. It's rare to find good customer service anymore, but they are top notch!

- Amie Westfall

Great group of people. My alarm system was a pain in the butt and I made it worse with my last minute mind changes. They never missed and beat and took care of my house and did everything that was needed and more! I also no longer have the old outdated key pad I finally have a nice touchscreen!
