HRRC offers classes on home security

Most homeowners want to be safe in their homes, but may be concerned that security measures could interfere with the aesthetics of their houses. To help homeowners make decisions about improved home security, retired electrician and security expert Dennis Meltzer will give a free presentation on "Making Your Home Safer" at on Tuesday, March 24, 7 p.m., at the Home Repair Resource Center (HRRC).

The discussion will explore options for improving home security, including exterior lighting, security systems, and door and window locks, and what to look for in each. The presentation is open to residents of all communities.

Homeowners interested in adding a home security system using wireless technology can learn how to install and use one on a do-it-yourself basis at a hands-on workshop—DIY Installation of a Home Security System—scheduled for Monday, April 6. A modest fee is charged for the workshop, which is open residents of all communities.

Reservations are required for both events. To reserve a spot, e-mail, or call 216-381-6100, ext. 16.
