A burglar breaking into a garage

by Ryan Gilmore |

Even though your home has more expensive belongings in it, your garage is a prime target for would-be thieves. And it's not just your car thieves can target, your garage will probably be full of expensive power tools, hand tools and other things that can be sold on easily.

While you can keep your car safe with a steering lock and a faraday pouch, there are further steps you can take to keep your garage itself free from crime. We've compiled a list of high and low-tech solutions to stop your belongings, and car, from being nicked.

Good lighting is a burglar's worst enemy and dousing one in the glow of a 100W/10,000-lumen LED lighting array should act as a pretty good deterrent. This floodlight features a PIR sensor for detecting intruders and will hopefully spook them out of any criminal activity.

Noise is an equally good deterrent in the fight against crime. This battery-operated coded alarm will give you ten seconds to add in a code once it detects movement before sounding its 100dB alarm. That'll get them running with any luck.

Take one step further than deterring would-be thieves is to record them, perfect for scaring them off and also handy evidence for insurance companies and the police. This security camera from TP-Link offers HD recording and connects to your home WiFi.

It features a motion detector and can send any threats to your smartphone via an app. You can also view it live on your phone and it features two-way audio to allow you to shout at a wannabe burglar and scare them away.

While the above camera is good for keeping inside your garage, it won't be much good for recording the outside, like your driveway. This camera from Blink is a battery-operated unit and can be mounted to the outside of your garage to record any crimes that may occur.

Like the TP-Link, it features motion detection, app alerts and a two-way audio feature that makes it a solid choice for getting burglars to go away.

Combining the recording abilities of a camera with the light of a floodlight, this little spotlight is a really sophisticated way to keep your car and garage safe. Made by Ring it offers class-leading recording and build-quality and should stop a burglar in their tracks.

Offered either as a battery-operated model (with an optional solar panel for power) or hardwired, the Spotlight offers the same features the other smart cameras offer. This means it features two-way audio for telling crims to go away, smartphone notifications if the motion sensor is triggered and 1080p recording, which can be viewed in real-time on your phone.

A good lock upgrade is an old-fashioned and simple way to keep your garage as secure as possible. The Garage Defender will ensure that no one can lift an up-and-over garage door up, meaning that even if they get in, they won't be leaving with anything too big.

It's designed for concrete floors (tarmac and pavement examples are also available) and uses a robust padlock and upstand bar to keep the door in place. It's got a Bronze Sold Secure rating too, meaning it should be good for your garage.
