Home Security

DOORS: Are the primary point of entry for many burglars. All exterior doors should be metal or solid wood and have strong door hinges with hidden or non-removable pins on the inside of the door. Install good quality deadbolt locks.
Windows: Are the most utilized access point to unlawful entry. One could plant thorny bushes around windows to make illegal entry more difficult.
Cut back tree limbs that might allow thieves to climb into windows.
Lighting: A well-lighted house can expose any individuals attempting to commit criminal acts. They increase visibility and eliminate hiding places.
Garages: Are commonly overlooked. If the door that connects the garage to the house is not kept secure, then anyone entering the garage can also enter the house. Always lock this door.


  1. Thanks for the tips. I think too often people forget about the importance of perimeter security.

  2. It's a good idea to leave your porch light on overnight.

  3. consider having a big dog. It takes efforts to treat but the result is there as well.
