A good lock is always the first and most important security measure for your home and businesses. However, there are also a lot of extra security options available for the home or business owner who wants additional layers of protection. Just keep in mind, that if you don’t have locks, and if you don’t use them consistently, any of these extra security options, no matter how fancy or expensive, might as well be useless.

One popular security option for home and business owners alike are security cameras. With technology advancements, most security camera systems will even let you check on your camera feed from your phone or computer.

Smart locks are another great option to add an extra layer of security to your properties. Smart locks come in a variety of styles. Some let you lock and unlock doors from your phone. Others, require a code or a fingerprint to open the lock. No matter what option you choose, smart locks are a great way to utilize security for your safety.

Technology aside, there are plenty of extra steps that you can take to make sure that your home or business is safe. For example, keep all landscaping trimmed so that it does not cover windows or provide hiding spaces for potential burglars. Don’t hide spare keys in obvious places, such as under welcome mats or potted plants. Use exterior lighting to make your property visible during the night. And, of course, strong and functioning locks are the best security measure you can take.
