This home security checklist offers 5 tips that I found useful. Thank you. -Bob M.
Keep valuables stored out of view
Most small time criminals are opportunists. You are much less likely to get burglarized if you do not tempt thieves with your valuables.. Dirtbikes, art, tools, etc should be stowed away and kept out of sight.
Insure that there is adequate exterior lighting
Many criminals like to hide in dark places in order to find the right moment to break into a property. By installing exterior lights around your property you will be 5 times more secure.
Always check your locks
Do you check your locks when you leave to insure that all doors and windows are locked? This is the most simple thing that you can do to improve the overall security of your home.
Install a high quality surveillance system
Surveillance systems are not only a way to prosecute criminals but they are also a good deterrent. The installation of a high quality surveillance system will improve your overall security drastically.
Purchase high quality locks.
Most doors have to be up to code as mandated by the City. You can count on doors to be relatively secure. The weakest point is the lock. The purchase of higher quality locks insures a higher level of security.
