5 Ways To Protect Your Garage From Burglary

Your garage is often targeted as a means of gaining entry to your home, and this is often where you keep unused expensive items. With that in mind, there are many solutions you can adopt to protect your garage from burglary, and here are some of the best!

1. Hire a CCTV installer near you

Security cameras are beneficial because they record everything that’s happening. These can provide you with much-needed evidence and in some cases, a warning when someone is trying to sneak into your home. With advanced features built into many cameras and recorders, you can receive a notification on your mobile phone during the event, instead of having to go back through footage once it has occurred. This will give you peace of mind even when you are away from the property, as you can look at your cameras anytime and from anywhere.

2. Install an intruder alarm system

A well fitted Intruder Alarm can not only provide an audible warning but can also act as a deterrent. With a garage door sensor, the alarm will be activated the second somebody opens it and will trigger, both, an internal and external sounder, alerting people to the presence of burglars. If you are away a smartphone app can also alert you, informing you that your system has been activated. The app can also be used to set and unset the system remotely for another location. The other alternative is to have a Police response system and this is a fully monitored system, which will signal to an Alarm Receiving Centre, who will inform the Police.  

3. Try shielding the lock

Using a garage shield is a good idea because it will cover the emergency release cord for the garage door. This way, the thief will not be able to break in. Such a system is inexpensive, it’s straightforward to use, and you can quickly improve your garage security with it. 

4. Use a better lighting system outside your home

The reason you want to do that is that high-quality lighting will keep burglars away. You can expect them to attack garages that are far away from any light source. But if you have a dependable lighting system right in front of your garage, that will scare them off. Go for high-quality lighting that’s efficient, easy to use and high quality. That’s what will give you the best results and value in the end. You want to install your garage lighting around 12 feet above the ground and inspect it from time to time.

5. Add the remote opener to the keychain

A lot of people forget their remote opener in their car, on the porch, and so on. Ideally, you want to have the remote garage opener on the keychain. This way, you know that no one will be able to enter your garage without your consent. It will be a lot harder for a burglar to break into the garage. A remote opener like this is super affordable, and that’s what makes it incredibly helpful and a pleasure to use!


We recommend you to use these tips if you want to keep your garage and home safe and away from Burglars. Sure, you may have to invest in some security equipment, but this is the right way to keep burglars away. In the end, you will be thrilled with your investment!
