Family Owned & Operated Company

Due to blizzards or freezing temperatures outside, most of us tend to stay indoors & enjoy the comfort of our blankets. The same cannot be said for thieves who are always on the lookout for an opportunity.

Extreme winter weather such as snow, ice & storms provides a good cover for criminals due to limited visibility. An adequate home security system in place makes sure intruders cannot take advantage of this situation.

Throughout the article, we will talk more about how home security keeps you safe during extreme winter weather.

What Are the Security Threats a Home Faces During Winter?

Burglaries

Criminals may take advantage of the cover provided by snow, ice, and reduced visibility to attempt break-ins. A burglary detection system proves useful to stop intruders trying to invade your home.

Frozen Pipes

Subfreezing temperatures can cause water pipes to freeze and burst. It is beneficial to install a flood detection system in your home. It'll instantly alert you and allow you to react in time & potentially prevent water damage.

power outages

Power Outages

Winter storms often result in power outages, which can disrupt security systems. Hence, it is essential to get battery backups for security alarms to stay prepared for the winter season.

increased fire risk

Increased Fire Risk

The use of space heaters, fireplaces, and other heating sources during extreme cold can increase the risk of fire outbreaks. This makes fire alarm systems mandatory to keep your home safe.

Increased Vulnerability of Outbuildings

Garages, sheds, and other outbuildings are often targeted by criminals during winter as they may contain valuable equipment, tools, or vehicles. Installing smart locks or garage openers that can be controlled remotely is a great way to fight this threat.
