By | Uncategorized

Although window film does help for various reasons when it comes to security, there are other precautions you can take. Especially with the technological developments in this day and age, you can make your home safer with these devices:

Security Cameras

Security cameras can be a bit pricey, but these devices can help keep your entire home safe and can spot an intruder. With the invention of Ring and Google’s Nest Cam, installing these into your home can give you peace of mind and protect you and your family.


Floodlights are a great way to minimize potential intruders and are a much lower price. The lights are motion-censored, meaning you can reduce the chances of someone snooping around your home.

Window Locks

Just like your doors, you can add locks to your windows as well. There are many types including, ventilation locks, hinge locks, locking pin locks, etc.

 Custom Glass Tinting doesn’t want you to neglect your windows or sliding glass doors when it comes to potential trouble. Adding security window film to your windows or sliding glass doors can help protect you and your home from intruders, here’s why:

  • Reduces Visibility

IF someone is planning to burglarize your home, they will most likely do it from a window. However, adding window film can make it harder for people to look inside your home. This can deter criminals from going inside because they aren’t aware of the valuables in your home.

  • Increased Resistance

Not only does window film reduce visibility, but the extra coating of tint helps make your glass stronger and increase resistance. With shatter-resistant technology, your windows can be protected.

  • Strengthens it

Glass is a very fragile material. It’s elegant and simple, but it can be easily broken. Adding security film can boost the defense of it breaking.

Tips to prevent a break-in

The best way to prevent a potential break-in is by making it seem like you are home. Burglars are much less likely to break and enter your home if its looks like you are there. Custom Glass Tinting is here to provide you with a few tips.

1. Leave a TV on

The first tip is to leave your tv on. If you have all the lights off but are watching TV, the criminal can assume you are just watching a movie. This will make the criminal think twice before breaking and entering.

2. Avoid posting on social media until after the trip:

Although going on vacation is super exciting, try to avoid posting on social media until after the trip. Even if you are private on social media, a criminal could potentially see a post about you leaving and know when to burglarize your home.

3. Park a car in the driveway:

A good sign that you are home is having a car in the driveway. If you usually park it in the garage, park it on the outside to deter burglars.

4. Leave lights on

Leaving a light on can deter a criminal. If the house is completely dark, especially for multiple days, they will assume no one is home and then your home is more vulnerable.

5. Ask a friend to housesit

If you’ll be gone for a week or more, consider having someone house sit. This person can bring in the mail and walk around the house. They could even potentially stay there and watch out for any emergencies that could happen in your home.
