What are the main entry points of a home?
The main entry points of a home are obviously doors and windows. However, you might think your front and back door and first floor windows are the only ways that burglars can get into your home. Garage doors, basement doors, and easily accessible second story windows can also serve as access points for a burglar. That is why it’s important to make sure everything is locked up tight.
What do burglars look for in a home?
There are a few main things that burglars look for in a home. The first is easy, undetected access. If you have a wide open window or stroll out of the house every morning without locking your door, those are a warm welcome for potential burglars. Clear signs that no one is home, such as having all of the lights off, grass that hasn’t been cut in a while, a mailbox teeming with mail, or not having your garbage out for collection like your neighbors are also red flags.
How can I improve my home’s security to keep my family safe?
There are a few ways to boost your home’s security, some of which can be done all on your own. The first of which, is to get some exterior motion sensor lights. You should also prepare ahead of time for vacations to have a neighbor take your trash out and hire someone to mow if you will be gone for over a week. Putting interior lights on a timer is also a good idea. Finally, if you want to get serious about your home security, you should bring in a professional locksmith to install high security locks, CCTV systems, and more.
