“Bulletproof Home Security System” is a book that consists of a series of home defense tactics that focus on hardening residences against surprise invasions.  While common burglaries are problematic in many areas across the United States, there has been a disturbing  rise in home invasions  in suburban communities.  Home invasions differ from burglaries largely because of their increased threat of violence to a home’s inhabitants.

The element of surprise allows these criminals to pull off home invasions successfully.  “The Bulletproof Home Security System” gives homeowners the tools that they need to reduce the element of surprise and discretely secure their houses. Here are three important takeaways from this unique home security system book. 

#1 Stop forced entry through front and back doors 

The front door is one of the most  common entry points  for home invaders according to security experts.  This is no shock since many homes come with decorative, builder-grade doors and low-end locks.

“The Bulletproof Home Security System” suggests that homeowners upgrade doors to ones that are made of solid materials that are not easily crushed when rammed.  The developer of the Bulletproof system recommends the installation of the following time-tested accessories:

  • Steel door barricades 

  • Floor-mounted, metal door stops 

  • Metal barrel bolts 

The idea is to stop an intruder from being able to crash in on the first try. If the burglar persists, residents will have the needed heads-up to get help if they’re at home during the attack.

#2 Secure windows against breaking and entering 

Windows are the second most popular entry points for burglars.  A window’s glass offers one of the easiest ways to get inside a home.  The criminal simply has to break the glass without harming themselves and reach through the window to unlock it.  The glass on sliding patio entrances and French doors offer the same allure to home invaders.

The installation of security windows will stop intruders in their tracks. These windows use tempered glass that is harder to break than traditional glass windows and doors. Covering window glass with 3M’s multilayer security film also helps to prevent intrusion.  The ballistic film by 3M holds shattered glass together in one piece. Burglars can’t easily enter a window even after they’ve broken glass that’s covered with this protective film.

#3 Lock down hidden entrances 

Seasoned burglars break into homes through non-conventional entrances. Homes usually have attics that are minimally secured with a metal vent and some standard screws.  Most burglaries happen during the day when people are at work and there is little activity in neighborhoods. Almost nothing can prevent a determined thief from putting a ladder against an exterior wall and unscrewing the attic vent door to gain access to a home.

By the time a neighbor figures out that the thief isn’t a local handyman, the burglar could empty the house of its valuables and cause thousands of dollars in damage.   The “Bulletproof Home Security System” advises property owners to secure their attic vent doors with metal grates that are bolted in place and not easily removed with common hardware store tools.

Benefits and drawbacks of the “Bulletproof Home Security System” methodology

The “Bulletproof Home Security System” is a common-sense approach to home defense that nearly all homeowners can implement to some degree.  However, this system works best for homes that are occupied during a home invasion. A persistent burglar, who has studied the schedules of a homeowner and their neighbors, can get through these security measures with the right tools and enough time.
