Garage Safety Tips to Help Secure Your Home

Home with a garage.Your garage is literally the gateway to the world. And in the world, there are plenty of thieves who see your garage as an easy entrance for pillaging your personal possessions.

Garage security may seem straightforward, but there are a surprising number of ways they can be exploited. We recently came across a handy guide from the San Francisco Police Department for securing your garage.

Here are just a few of the 14 practical tips for increasing your garage security:

  • Don’t leave the garage door remote in your vehicle. If a thief breaks in to your car and steals the remote, then the thief has a way into your home.
  • Install a wide-angle peephole in the door between your house and your garage — You’ll at least be able to see what’s going on if you hear a strange noise; rather than opening the door to find out.
  • Frost or cover your garage windows — Don’t do thieves any favors by enabling them to see when your vehicle is gone, a better idea would be to replace the door with one that lacks windows. Windows are fragile and can be easily broken into.
