Home security DIY: step into the mind of a criminal
Don’t worry, you don’t need to become a method actor for this – all you need to do is think of all the weak spots in your security and then test them.
How you ask? Look at your property from the perspective of a criminal wanting to gain entry into your house or office space. In other words, what makes your property vulnerable?
Here are some things to consider:
- Are there locks on your windows and doors?
- Do you have a monitered alarm system?
- Have you got CCTV cameras?
- Do you have motion activated beams?
- Is your roof, basement or attic easily accessible from outside?
- Is your property fence or gate easy to climb?
Generally speaking, attempting to break into your own property can really open your eyes to how much security you need. Alternatively, if you͛d prefer a professional security assessment, we, the Australian Security Company are available to perform obligation-free security assessments on both home and business premises.

Easier said than done, right? No, not if your loved ones or employees are at risk. Changing your security habits may seem like a small and insignificant act, but it could save lives.
