Renovating your home can end up being a serious hassle if you aren’t careful; stress, frustration and emotion can get the better of you. It can be easy to forget a few things in the whirlwind of planning and process. However, you should never allow for this confusion to get in the way of your safety. As your home is being renovated, you may think that it’s a good idea to disconnect your alarm to make way for construction. But here are some ways you can keep your home safe, even in its state of progress.
Yes, dust may be kicked into the air during renovation, and this could trigger certain particle detectors. It’s possible that debris in the air from construction could set off a false fire or burglar alarm. But you should always contact your alarm company for advice in this situation before you go disconnecting anything. Putting yourself at risk is not worth avoiding an awkward false alarm situation.
Sometimes, it takes residents a few weeks to get alarms connected to their renovated areas. This is especially true for home additions. It may feel like you’re essentially protected, because you’ve got alarm systems elsewhere in the home. But security is useless if it isn’t comprehensive. You should always have alarm systems set in all areas of your home, including the renovated parts.
When your home is being renovated, it’s possible that doors and windows won’t be entirely secure. To fix this, invest in a perimeter security system. That way, rather than being triggered by opening a door or window, the alarm system will trigger when someone enters an area they aren’t supposed to. This will protect from intruders, even when your home isn’t enclosed.
