Defensive Landscaping and Security Systems

When you own property, security is paramount to protecting your home and family. From landscaping to smart home automation, there are many things you can do to defend your property. 

Here are a few tips for protecting the people who matter most to you, as well as your peace of mind. 

 

Plant Defensive Landscaping

When you buy a new home, you are purchasing a giant to-do list. One thing on your list is certainly landscaping. Taking on your property’s landscaping project is more important than just making the outside look great. Using defensive landscaping techniques can help protect you and your family:

  1. Trees: Trees near second story windows are an open invitation to burglars to climb into your home. Remove tree limbs that provide potential access points to your home. 
  2. Trellises: Like trees, trellises on the side of your home provide everything a would-be burglar needs to climb into your home. 
  3. Fencing: Strong steel or aluminum ornamental fencing looks great and provides an extra level of security to your property. 
  4. Hedges: Thick hedges can provide a level of beauty and privacy to your yard. If they are thick enough, they can deter and prevent burglars from entering your property. Make sure they do not obstruct the view of security cameras.
  5. Plants: Prickly plants can deter burglars from trying to enter your home. Holly, rose bushes, cacti, and other thorny plants make your property much less appealing.

Many of the landscaping changes that help protect your property also improve its aesthetics and curb appeal. In addition to prickly plants, there are other steps you should take to make your property less appealing to burglars.

If you’ve ever needed to return home because you forgot to lock your doors, or you just weren’t sure, a home automation system lets you lock doors from anywhere, at any time. An effective security system does more than protect you from the danger outside your home, it also helps you stay protected from the potential dangers from within, like carbon monoxide, electrical fires, and floods.

Home automation allows you to stay in touch with your home or business from your smartphone or tablet from anywhere. You can control, access, and automate your security system, such as alarms, locks, and lights while also receiving alerts and notifications from your smart systems:

Smart devices are meant to make modern life easier, but when you have three or more different smart home devices that are all controlled through different apps, it can become a headache to manage all of them. 

If you have to log into various accounts on different apps just to control your home’s alarm system and convenient smart devices, that’s not really a smart system. 

Switch to Integrity Security Inc. to make life easier by centralizing control over all your smart home convenience and safety features.
