5. Secure Windows:
If your garage has windows, reinforce them with impact-resistant glass or install window security film. Consider covering windows with curtains or blinds to prevent potential burglars from peering inside.
6. Add a Security System:
Integrate your garage into your home’s security system. This could include sensors on the garage door, window alarms, and a loud alarm to deter intruders.
7. Lock Interior Doors:
If your garage has a door leading into your home, secure it with a high-quality deadbolt lock. This adds an extra layer of protection even if an intruder gains access to the garage.
8. Secure the Emergency Release:
Protect the emergency release mechanism by using a zip tie or installing a garage door defender. This prevents intruders from easily disengaging the release and gaining access.
