There are many things you can do to make your home more secure. Some of the most simplest is to ensure that you have purchased the most up to date locks for windows and doors. Remember, robbers also know and keep an eye out for the locks that you find at the local hardware store. They purchase these locks and work hard until they can easily open them without any problems. Using these locks are almost like inviting robbers into your home.
Install outdoor lighting. You may not think this will do much good at all; however, if you lighten up the dark corners in your backyard and along your front door, burglars will pass your house by for an easier one to get into. This includes your patio area and even those back corners of your large backyard. Motion sensor lighting is also the best as the lights will come on with any movement, but of course it could just be your neighbor’s cat.
Never have trees or bushes close to windows or even close to the exterior of your home. This just gives invaders a great place to hide that even your neighbors may not see. Be sure to keep all flowers, shrubs, and other greenery below the windows so no one can hide behind them and find a way into a window.
Too many times, families have a special place such as a rock to place an extra key. This is truly a very bad idea. Robbers are smart enough to look under rocks, in flower pots, under rugs, and any other place close to the door for that extra key. Even all those cute key holders you find at the hardware store will not keep your home safe as burglars also look here for ideas to break into your home.
