Grill or No Grill for House Security

So guys, today let's talk about your home security. Not the alarm monitoring or CCTV, that will come later. But those really basic requirements for a new home. Yes, the grill. In Malaysia, because of our theft and burglary rating is so high most home owners will consider installing grill on their windows and doors.

Ok let's be real, unless your house is watch over by some security personnel for 24 hours 7 days each day. Only then you will feel safe right? Wrong! I've read that even if you have your own security guards wouldn't  mean you are totally safe. Freak out already? Hahaha.

Anyway, what about those home owners that is living in a GG (gated and guarded)? Surely they will feel somesort of security/at ease of mind. Well, it depends. You could still feel that you will need some sort of security measure taken place. Additional to what the developer has offered installing grill/alarm system, etc.

Mr. Bob and I has come across this conversation many... many times. Each time we still argue to install or not install the grill. Why this conversation you may ask? Our new property comes with 4 sliding doors and more than 20 window panels. Yup, it is that much! Could you guess how much grill may cost us? *cry*

So, one of our mission during the previous Home Living Expo at Sunway, is to find some security solution for our home. Lo and behold we found Eagle Secure Tech. We were quite impress with the products offered. We were thinking if these items were installed on our windows, for sure we could lower our budget for security. Yeay!!

Let us see how it works. Basically, their main services is coming with a master lock (for your whole house). Which means you will only need one key for all doors and padlocks. Cool right? I believe they are selling the window locks for RM 99 and sliding RM 170. *Kaching!*

The locks look sturdy to me

How to install on your windows

Now, I know what you guys are thinking. What about your windows, couldn't the thief smash your windows and still get inside your house? Well, they certainly could. Then again, will some grill stop them from doing the same. Nope. Most of the stories I heard is about homes with grills getting break ins. You have to understand that these security measures are only done to slow them down, not to stop them entirely.

Eagle secure tech team are also offering their digital door dead bolts (with finger prints) which we still look into soon. The price if RM1900 for a simpler version and the model below comes about RM 2300 (during promotion period).
