Our homes provide havens offering our families a secure environment. We raise our children behind the doors of our homes in a safe setting sheltered from harm. We return home from work expecting things to be the same as when we left. However, even for homes with electronic home security systems installed, statistics prove that our homes fall victim to intrusion far too often, threatening not only our sense of security but also property and lives. For those who have experienced the disruption to life following a home invasion, they know too well the importance of a security system consisting of effective locks and other hardware.
The front door most often provides the burglar access into a home. Door security updates include new styles of hardware that makes it less likely for the existence of a duplicate key for a standard door lock. High quality front door handles can deter the burglar from picking or drilling the lock. Deadbolt locks slow down the potential intruder by making it difficult for them to pry, wrench or hammer their way into the home.
