How burglar proof is your home?

Most homes have some areas that are vulnerable to a break-in. Do a few easy things to make it hard for a burglar to get you.
  • Think like a burglar. Take the time to "case" your house or apartment. Where is the easiest entry? How can you make it more burglar-resistant?
  • Trim trees and shrubs near doors and windows.
  • Think carefully before installing a high, wooden fence around your back yard. High fences and shrubbery can add to your privacy, but can also be an asset to a burglar. Consider trading a little extra privacy for a bit of added security.
  • Look on the bright side. Burglar are most often going to avoid well lit areas. Exterior lights and motion detectors, mounted out of easy reach, can reduce the darkness a burglar finds comforting.
  • Simple security devices - nails, screws, padlocks, door and window locks, grates, bars and bolts - can increase the amount of time it takes to break into your home.
  • Invest in a burglar alarm. The most effective ones also ring at an outside service.
What can people see if they look in your windows? If they see that giant TV, a bunch of electronics, jewelry, etc., they are going to have a target!
