Do You Know the Basics of Home Security?
Most people feel confident about the basics of home security. For example:
Keep all doors locked. Have a light on in the house while away. Never hide
a key outside in an obvious place, like under the mat.
• Yet, almost a million and a half properties get burglarized in
North America each year. So how can you prevent that from
happening to your home? Here are a few less known home
security basics:
• Actually, never hide a key outside. Thieves know all the hiding
places. Instead, make sure all family members have a key.
• Two-thirds of home burglaries occur during the day. So be
extra vigilant about making sure doors and windows are
locked while you're away during the day.
• Surprisingly, most thieves are not daring. They are 2.7 times
more likely to target a home without an alarm system.
• Thieves will attempt to force entry through sliding-style doors
and windows first. So make sure these have a locking bar or
extra bolt lock.
• Surprising, 40% of household burglaries do not involve forced
entry. The thief is able to slip in through an unlocked window
or door.
• Don't show off possessions! An imported racing bike parked
next to the garage, or expensive audio equipment clearly seen
through a window, is an invitation to burglars.
• Take a look at the lighting and landscaping around your
property. Are there spots where a thief could easily hide? If so,
make some changes.
• When planning a trip, have a trusted neighbour pick up
newspapers, flyers and anything else that may accumulate at
your door.
Your local police department may have more tips and special programs for
keeping your home secure. Give them a call.
