5 tips to Maximize Home Security During a Home Remodel

Many homeowners would agree home security should be a priority when designing a new home. Home security features have evolved in recent years, and homeowners should take advantage of the security features now available to us.

There are various factors to consider when building a new home to ensure the safety and security of your loved ones. While updating or improving your home for years to come, don’t neglect the equally important task to upgrade the security features of the home.

Below are 5 tips to keep in mind when designing a new home to maximize your home’s security.

Smart Features

The invention of smart home features has boosted home security significantly in the past decade or so. It’s now easier than ever to keep a close eye on your home, whether you’re a few miles away or out of the country. Monitor your cameras for indoor or outdoor activity, and even your door locks from one app on your smartphone. Make it look like the home is occupied when you’re away by controlling outdoor lighting from anywhere.

Motion Detectors

Sophisticated motion detectors will help ward off intruders. By shining a bright light on anyone close enough to set off the light, this could deter unwanted criminals while you’re both home and away.

Alarm System

When remodeling or building a new home, now is your chance to install a state-of-the-art alarm system that will give your family the safety and security needed to keep everyone safe. Explore both wired and wireless systems and determine which alarm system is right for you.

Lock Upgrade

Upgrade your locks with a digital lock to add an extra layer of protection for your family. Never worry about lost keys or if the wrong person has access to keys again. Instead, set a unique alarm code that only trusted family and friends have access to and change it whenever needed.


Install a gate when remodeling or building a new home to keep your home more private. A gate is another step to overcome when burglars attempt to access your property. Installing a security lock with your gate will give intruders less access to your home.
