While criminals do scout out homes for a means of entry, it is typically the carelessness of homeowners that provides burglars with their perfect opportunity. That’s why you’ll have to pay extra attention to your household’s perimeter if you want to keep the home safe from harm.
One common mistake that homeowners make is not upgrading their locks. Check windows for loose latches as well. After securing doors and windows, give your perimeter a scan from the outside and remove shrubbery that could provide cover for intruders. Installing a home security system with outdoor motion detectors can help too.
