Cottage Security Systems

Yes, a cottage is just a house scaled down, and home security systems are the same as cottage security sytems. However, it is a house that is often in an isolated area where there are few full-time residents. That means criminals do have an opportunity to get in and do what they want long before anyone can respond to an alarm.

That time delay emboldens many burglars. It isn't uncommon for burglars to set fire to a house or cottage after ransacking it. They may be attempting to cover up their actions or they may not be satisfied with just stealing something. Their criminal intent may go beyond stealing a microwave or TV you've left there during the week, or over the winter when you hardly visit at all.

For cottages, you will want to have sturdy secure door locks and a very loud burglar alarm siren that is difficult to disarm. Studies show that burglars do not like loud sirens. Vibration detectors might be an excellent way to detect someone trying to physically break through a door, window or wall. The early sounding siren may be enough to discourage them before they actually do break in.

Of course, you should never leave anything in your cottage that might tempt someone to break in. If a burglar breaks in once successfully and finds something worthwhile, it's almost a certainty

When developing a home security plan , a homeowner must find the right balance between deterrence and detection. For the average suburban home or apartment, detection - in the form of some kind of alarm or monitoring system - is vital.

For cottages or secondary properties, however, deterrence is more important. The distance of a cottage or rural property from neighbors or law enforcement can make securing a second residence a challenge.

Here's a few tips to ensure your property is secure:

Protect Your Windows

  • Fit with secure locks.
  • Use storm glazing when possible.
  • Have dowelling or stop pins in window frames to prevent opening a window more than a few inches.
  • Fit basement windows and ground floor windows with strong locks and security glass.
  • Air conditioners in window frames need to be bolted solidly into the framework.
  • Windows should locked at night and whenever you leave the property. Protect Your Doors With Secure Door Locks
    • Use solid hardwood or metal doors with deadbolt tamper-proof door locks .
    • Do not use double cylinder locks. (If you are locked inside during a fire this can be a hazard and a danger.)
    • Lock bolts need to extend at least one i...
