If you come home and your front door is locked when you know you left it open be careful entering the home. Often burglars will lock this door to slow down the victim giving them more time to get out of the home before the resident enters.
If your home has an alarm system always alarm it no matter if your stepping out for a second or a couple months always arm it!
Always keep your front and rear porch lights on from dusk to dawn and use motion detector lighting along the sides of your home or in other dark areas. It’s a good idea to have these lights and some indoor lights on timers to always give the appearance that someone is present at your property.
Adjust the window coverings so that they block out as much of people vision as possible. This will not only save on cooler cost but keep your home more secure.
Unplug or disable your garage door from opening remotely when you go on a extended vacation. There now are devices that people can hack your garage signal and gain access to your home this way so disable it if possible.
Always Bolt your safe to the floor of your property this will allow it not to be removed if you are being robbed.
On social media networks, it’s usually a good rule of thumb to not post of a vacation until you return home. Otherwise you are adverting to everyone that has access to your account that you are gone!
