How to Feel Safe When Living Alone in South Africa

Living alone is the new norm in today’s day and age.

Many of us can’t imagine living any other way.

Living alone or working from home?

Yet living alone can also be a stressful experience. When you come home late at night, are you sure you’re safe as you open up your front door? When you hear a noise in the middle of the night, do you have all the protection you need?

There are a few simple ways you can improve your home security.

Moved into a New Place?

The first step you should take is to rekey your door locks immediately. This is one of the easiest security measures – it’s quick and inexpensive. You can also upgrade to electronic door locks with keypads that make it easier and more convenient for you.

Get Reinforcements

You’re living single, you want a strong door, and a standard panel aren’t enough. The Xpanda
Alu-glide takes your standard door to the next level. It’s a fully framed security door that’s 100% aluminium and comes with a lock with the lattice facing inward.  

Reinforce Sliding Glass Doors

They’re beautiful, but they’re also the easiest way for burglars to break into homes. It can be popped off the track in a matter of seconds. Add an extra layer of protection by installing the Xpanda Multiguard. It’s perfect for external applications in both residential and commercial installations.

Don’t Let Workers in When You’re Alone

Whether you’re male or female, young or old, or are expecting a plumber to fix a leaky sink, invite some friends over to keep you company. It’s much safer to have a stranger think you live with roommates than to give away the fact that you live alone. It’ll make you less of a target.
Living alone can be exciting, but you should never look down upon security issues.

Do whatever you can think of to stay safe when you live alone. We hope these safety tips can give you peace of mind.
