The best place for security information!
1. Get to know your neighbors. Your neighbors are often the first ones to notice when something doesn’t “look right” at your home.
2. It’s important to use a high quality deadbolt lock on your doors and to use an additional blocking device on sliding glass doors. Windows are often much less attended to than doors, so check them throughout your home routinely.
3. Install drapes or blinds on all lower level windows and doors, including the garage. Most burglaries actually occur during the middle of the day, so keeping your possessions and cars hidden from intruders is important.
4. Install flood lights or sensor lights on the exterior of the home. Burglars are far less likely to enter a well-lit residence.
5. Keep a well-manicured lawn. This can emphasize that you pay close attention to your home, whereas an overgrown lawn can suggest vacancy to a possible burglar.
