The first step to keeping unwelcome visitors out is to protect the entrances to your home.
THE FRONT DOOR – A WINDOW OF OPPORTUNITY?
To help prevent burglars from getting into your home through a window, install locks or pins. We recommend using the same brand of lock for all your windows so it’s easy and convenient to use them. And that’s an important point, because when safety and convenience are at odds, convenience usually wins.
Make sure to keep the key in a safe but easy-to-access location so you can get to it quickly if there’s a fire.
Also keep any trees or shrubs around windows trimmed. While they may seem to increase your privacy, they also increase a burglar’s privacy while they’re breaking into your home.
