Whether for storing an expensive vehicle, high-value bikes, power tools & equipment, fishing equipment or even if the garage is empty, a home garage is an attractive target for intruders or criminals. Older model garage doors are most problematic because they have outdated features. So if the doors of your garage are old-fashioned than you should get it replaced as soon as possible. By doing this, the doors will be safer, function better and also provide better security to your property.
No matter how old the garage door though, here is a list of some smart tips that will help to tighten up the overall security of your home.
- KEEP YOUR HOME LOCKED
If your garage is attached to your house, you should always make sure that you keep your house locked for security purposes. Instead of using a typical lock, consider using a deadbolt. It’s also a great idea to use a digital smart lock that leads to enter into your home. If you are going out of the town, add an additional padlock on the door just to keep things secure. Don’t make things easy for thieves!
- ALWAYS CLOSE THE GARAGE DOOR
Only open the door of your garage when you have to go in and out. Do not open up the garage door and leave it open when you run inside and outside with pieces of stuff and other essentials. Don’t forget that an intruder just needs a moment to step into the garage. Many people leave the doors open up all the time, giving an open invitation to the criminals.
- EXTEND THE HOME SECURITY SYSTEM
If you already have a security system for the rest of your house, how can you forget about the security of your garage? It’s important to make sure that you should extend a security camera and alarm system to your garage( most vulnerable place) of your home as well.
- COVER THE WINDOWS

So, it’s better to cover or frost the garage windows. By doing you can prevent intruders from being able to look in at your home, and give them clues of your property has anything they want.
