Avoid inviting criminals and making it easy for them. Here are some things you can do to improve your home security profile for free!

Think Like A Burglar!

What would you prefer if you were a burglar? Opportunities that are high reward, easy & low risk. Don't make it easy!
  • Don’t literally leave the door open to burglars. Keep doors, windows, rolling garage doors closed & locked even when working around the house. A partially open window is an open invitation to a burglar. 
  • Check if your rolling garage door fully closes before driving off. 
  • Always lock the door between your house and garage. This is becoming an increasingly popular entry method.
  • Never open your door to strangers. Talk through the door if needed.
  • No spare hidden keys around the house.
  • Always arm your alarm. Arm it fully when you are out. Arm it in ‘at home’ mode when you are in.
  • Don’t lend your keys, most keys can be easily duplicated.
  • Don’t idle or warm up car on the driveway with the keys in the ignition.
  • Don’t announce/post vacation/absence from home on social media, vmail, or email auto-replies. Looking up your address is easy.
  • Turn off location tagging on photos & videos and be careful posting details.
  • Be careful with hired help in and around your house. They can unlatch a window after using your bathroom to make it easy to break-in later. You can’t tell who is a part-time burglar by looking at them. If a worker is coming to your home, put valuables out of sight and watch what you say. Most are good people but it’s better to be safe than sorry. 
  • Pick up flyers on your property promptly.
