For many properties the garage is one of the easiest points to gain entry. The most common way thieves attempt to break into the garage is generally with a crowbar or breaking the lock.
There are a few extra security measure you can implement that may help further reduce the risk of illegal access.
Use motion sensor lights:
Motion sensing lights are a simple yet effective way to help keep the area around your shed or garage a little safer. Exterior lights may help work as a deterrent as well as an alarm indication to alert you when someone is outside.
A simple padlock is a cheap and effect way to keep your shed secure. Sheds can hold valuable items from home gardening items to fuel storage and farming equipment. A quality padlock can offer formidable protection, if installed correctly, at a very affordable price.
Mainly intended for non-automatic garage doors floor hasps attach to the inside of the garage door with high quality bolts and to the internal concrete flooring, secured with a high quality padlock. The down side to floor hasps is they need to be unlocked from the inside of the garage, although they do provide great protection against leverage of the door.
Cameras offer security in the form of prevention, capture and alarm. Security cameras fitted with an alarm system will not only notify you when a break-in is in occurrence but can also possibly capture the theft in action. Security cameras have also been known to work as a visual deterrent when installed in hard to reach locations whilst maintaining high visibility.
