Here are some tips and home safety products for sale in the Philippines you can buy today to protect your home from human and microbial intruders.
Boost Your Home Security
Security specialists say that surprisingly, a lot of homeowners tend to keep their front door unlocked, which present an opportunity towards such deplorable people. Your home security, when done right, can effectively deter criminals and other outsiders from forcing their way in your home.
Change your locks
Don't be contented with your default locks in your home. Experts recommend that you should change your locks every seven years at most to improve the security of your home and keep burglars and any malicious intruders away from your home. We recommend beefing your security up using either deadbolt or digital, fob-based locks.
See who's knocking
Adding a door chain to your door would help you check who's knocking without fully letting a stranger into your home. Another way to view outsiders is to have a door viewer fisheye lens installed on your door. A bit of lighting outside can help a simple, analog one. On the other hand, there's also the digital option, such as a smart video doorbell that lets you see and talk with the person on the other side of the door.

Gather hard evidence with cameras
Sometimes, the best way to protect your home is to discourage intruders immediately. One way to do it is to install closed-circuit television (CCTV) or any video surveillance outside your home, specifically on blind spots. While it can't protect your home from crime, it can deter criminal elements from forcing their way in if they saw there's a camera. The recordings can also be used as evidence should it capture anything unsavory happening outside your home.

Other ways to prevent anyone from trespassing your property include getting a security dog, installing motion sensors on your property and just checking if every window and door is locked before going to sleep. Keep your valuables, like documents and jewelry in a secure location, such as a vault. Sometimes, even simple approaches such as this work without making your security needlessly complicated.
