Reports over time have shown that in recent years the power outages, especially across the US, have increased remarkably. There can be many suggestive reasons like an ever increasing population, the extreme weather conditions or aging infrastructure but a conclusive reason behind these power outages could not be stated and the difference between the number of power outages in early years of this century and of current years is huge.
Generally, there are a number of risks and threats of security attached to this issue. Be it extreme natural accidents and occurrences or offensive attacks through cyber. Even robbery and thefts get increased because the looters get their opportunity when the power is out and they take maximum advantage out of it.
Which is why, to secure your house against burglars and looters during these power outages is extremely important and inevitably required. For this, below are a few measures that you can take to secure your house during the power outages.
Steps to Secure Your House With Non-Electrical Measures
First thing first, you need to take certain measures with which you can ensure the security of your house and its members with non electrical ways. You actually need to have faith that no matter what happens, you will always be safe in the premises of your house. For this certainty and faith to develop, take the following steps:
– Firstly, countercheck all the measures of security that are currently in place.
– Your main gate and all the doors should be solid, opaque and strong enough to guard you against any natural, accidental or unfortunate threats.
– The gates should not only depend on electrical and automatic lock system but should also contain a solid latch that you can bolt if required. (Chains are also recommended for better security).
– Check your house for all the broken latches, windows, hinges or even glasses and repair them once and for all.
