Keep Security at the Top of Your List While Renovating Your Home.

Sometimes home renovations mean changes to your home security. To ensure your home remains safe and secure, here are some tips to integrate your security system into your renovation plans:

Arm while you work
Home renovations usually involve many people coming in and out of your house during the process. This may present an opportunity for intruders to take advantage of your home. Remember to arm your security system whenever your house is vacant and put valuables out of sight.

Wait, don’t put that there
Changes to the layout of your home can mean changes to your security setup. Before moving plants or pieces of furniture, make sure you know the range of your motion detectors and other security devices, to prevent any false alarms. Contact your security consultant if alterations need to be made to your system or devices need to be moved or repositioned.

Drafts be gone
In addition to moving objects in your home, drafts from doors or windows can sometimes cause false alarms depending on how they interact with your home. Be mindful of drafts in your home and attempt to correct any issues that may be causing them.

Inform and protect
Home repairs can often involve the use of expensive equipment and an increased number of people in your home. Store equipment out of sight and let working crews know of your typical security procedures. Be sure to tell your family about any new security precautions you’re taking while renovating.

Review your security system
As a final stage to your home rejuvenation, make sure your security system is working properly. Backup batteries should be replaced every 3 to 5 years, or consider upgrading to give your security system a nice refresh to go with your new and improved home.

Planning tip: When planning or working through your renovation, consider integrating home automation services into your security system. Home automation can make your home safer, smarter, and more efficient by allowing you to control security, thermostats, lights, locks, cameras and more from anywhere in the world.

With these tips, your home projects will run more smoothly and help you plan ahead.
