But there are some devices that can help increase home security. The following 5 instruments will help provide protection for your family and home:

Home Security System (Burglary Alarm)

A home security system (burglary alarm) is an electronic device, which detects intruders. The system has sensors detecting anyone entering the home through doors and windows. The system notifies the monitoring company of activity within the home. Surveillance cameras are also available for monitoring outside of the house.

Carbon Monoxide Detector

Carbon monoxide gas is the “silent killer.” This gas does not have an odor or color. The main sources of this gas are defective stoves and heaters in the home. Carbon monoxide detectors set off a loud sound to warn family members of the gas. Everyone should go outside and notify emergency personnel.

Dead Bolt Lock

A deadbolt lock is a security device for the door. The lock has a steel bolt, which goes into the door frame. The steel bolt makes it difficult for someone to kick in the door. You will need a key to lock and unlock the door from the outside of the house. For more protection, there is a double bolt lock. You have to use a key to lock both sides of the door. You should place the key near the door in case of emergencies.
