Alarms – these are your basic security gadgets that you install in your access areas. This includes all your doors and windows. There are contact alarms that are triggered when the apparatus mounted on the window frame and one on the window panel are taken apart. This will sound an alarm inside the house. There are some more modern alarm systems that are hooked up to the nearest police station. In case of a break in, the police will be alerted immediately to increase their chances of capturing the culprit.

Locks – locks are also some of the basic safety gadgets that you should have. Do not settle for just one lock. Dead bolts and padlocks that are constructed of strong material are best for your doors and gates. You can choose to have a combination of these locks to boost your home’s security.

Cameras – another technologically advanced home security device are CCTVs or closed circuit television cameras. These are placed in an inconspicuous place outside or inside the home. While these do not physically stop intruders and burglars from getting inside your home, these cameras allow you to observe what is going on in different areas in your home. Most burglars are turned off by homes with CCTVs. They know that they can get caught if their pictures on the video recording come out clear.
