What Are The Top Four Ways to Deter Burglars?
Leave The Lights On
A dark house is usually an empty house. To keep your home from looking like an easy target, it can be a good idea to leave some lights on. The idea is to make it seem as if someone is home, so you can also do things like leave TV’s on, or leave music playing. If a burglar assumes someone is home, they will likely look for an easier target.
Don’t Hide A Key
Occasionally you and your family members may forget your keys. However, hiding a key somewhere by your door, or in your yard is very dangerous. Burglars count on you using things suck as hiding rocks and bricks, and they have learned to look for them and use them. Instead, perhaps you can leave a key with your neighbors or family members you can call to get back in.
Lock All Entry Points Of Your Home
While the front door is the most common point of entry for burglars, it is not the only way into your home. Burglars will always choose the path of least resistance when it comes to breaking in. Check all of your windows, doors and even your garage for weak points. All entries should be locked and protected.
Invest in a Home Security System
A home security system is the best way to keep intruders and burglars off of your property. With signs and sensors, they can see at a glance that your home isn’t worth the trouble it will cause them. With a security system and monitoring service, your house is protected at all times, and the police can respond to emergencies whether you are home or not!
