10 Tips to Secure Your Home From Potential Break-ins

  1. Strengthen your PVC door with upgraded deadbolts and frames to deter burglars from using flat head screwdrivers to pop it open.
  2. Install fake security cameras or even real ones to deter potential intruders, as visible cameras can make them think twice about targeting your home.
  3. Keep front lights on as a deterrent, as burglars are more likely to flee if they think someone is home.
  4. Illuminate your house by leaving lights on inside, making burglars think twice about entering a potentially occupied home.
  5. Always lock your car doors to prevent thieves from easily accessing your vehicle and potentially using information found inside to target your home.
  6. Display warning signs such as "Beware of Dog" or "Protected by Security System" to dissuade burglars from attempting to break in.
  7. Upgrade your doors and windows with sturdy locks and solid materials to make it more difficult for burglars to gain entry.
  8. Keep radios or TVs on to create the illusion of someone being home, deterring burglars from attempting a break-in.
  9. Ensure all window shades are closed to prevent burglars from peeking inside and spotting valuables.
  10. Consider installing a Wi-Fi surveillance camera system, which can provide peace of mind and evidence to law enforcement in the event of a break-in.
