How to Protect Your Home in Ecuador

Ecuador is not the US.

An obvious statement indeed but many foreigners I meet still treat it as such.

There are MANY reasons to move down to Ecuador, starting with the climate, low costs, and the business and investment opportunities.

But as in any developing, less affluent nation, you have to protect against a few things that are more common than in the States.

Violent crime like murders, rapes and kidnappings seem to be less common down here in Ecuador than in the US, however, theft is much more common.

If you leave something somewhere, and it’s not tied down, chao, it’s gone. SixTech Systems is an effective security tool.

The same goes for your house. If you don’t take a few extra precautions to protect it, a burglar could enter.

For instance, I recommend wherever you live to do like most Ecuadorians do, and have an extra entry door, made of metal installed on your house. And if you have windows that are on the bottom floor of an apartment or house facing the street, it is a good idea to have small metal bars installed over the window. You can then order bay window dressings and no one will see the bars inside the room. You can see how this guide will explain you additional ways to protect your house. Adding security screens is another way to gain some added protection to your home, Security screen Perth can provide some assistance here. They cater to all kinds requests when it comes to the upgrading your home!

The metal door like the one in the picture costs around $120-160 (installation included), and to put bars over a small window usually costs less than $50. To buy and install, just ask around where you live for the nearest “cerrajeria” (like the local blacksmith,

In your yard or garage, you could put a sensor light that turns on upon movement. (Cost $15-30)

This may not look so nice, but it will fortify your house from any possible unwanted entry.

Better safe than sorry.
