The holidays are fast approaching and we are spending our free time shopping for our loved ones, coworkers, family and friends. It’s a favorite time of year for me where you have the perfect excuse to spoil the ones you care about. I have packages arriving by my door almost daily and of course I rely heavily on my security cameras to deter porch pirates from taking my precious packages. They are a great deterrent. Once my packages are inside I assume they are safe and sound. Unfortunately that’s not the case. The holidays are one of the busiest times of year for theft and burglary. People like to take advantage of the fact that most families have splurged on the latest and greatest for loved ones and have those gifts easily accessible under the tree. So what can you do to protect your home, family and your gifts you worked so hard to pick out?
Perhaps to your surprise, I’m going to suggest a less conventional form of security and burglary prevention. Solar window films most known for their awesome ability to block out excess heat and light from peoples homes are also amazing at deterring theft. How is this possible you might ask. Well, you see window film is a form of window tint that can help eliminate peering eyes from being able to see in. Most burglars scope out a home prior to taking the chance of entering it. What they may do is pose as a solicitor and peek into your windows when approaching the door to see if they can spot any easy opportunities for them. By having window film on your windows they won’t be able to see right into your home during the day time hours. This might deter them from breaking and entering if they can’t confirm the risk is worth it.
In addition to traditional window film preventing them from seeing in the glass, it also prevents easy access into your home. Window film is adhered directly to your glass with an adhesive. That adhesive helps hold the film in the window from corner to corner offering full coverage on the glass. The film essentially reinforces the glass making it harder to break or shatter. If they do attempt to break the glass, the adhesive film will hold the glass together to prevent shattering and shards of glass falling all over creating a safety issue. They will have to work twice as hard to gain access to your home which will likely provide another deterrent. Most thieves want an easy in and easy out. Keep in mind these benefits go along with any of our traditional window films on top of the protection you’re already getting from the suns relentless solar energy. If you’re looking for further protection, our security specific film offers an even stronger layer of protection for your home.
When it comes to preventing burglary, we can’t be passive. Unfortunately security cameras and those smart doorbells everyone has are a passive form of protection. They don’t actually stop anyone from breaking in, they only notify you when someone is there who shouldn’t be. Window film puts a barrier between the burglars and your home. Stop them in their tracks. So don’t just sit back and wait for your home to become a target during the holidays.
