  • Focus on Your Exterior — It may sound simple; however, many homeowners can improve their home’s security by taking extra measures to reinforce the entrances to their home. Exterior doors are often a soft spot in many people’s homes. A kick from an intruder can break down a door at the weak point where the lock meets the doorjamb. Reinforce your doors for extra security.
  • Replace Old Windows — Windows act as a common entry point for intruders.  Keeping them up to date is an important, overlooked aspect of home security. Old windows have long been exposed to weathering and corrosion, which can hamper their locking effectiveness. Thus, not protecting your home as effectively as possible.
  • Secure the Garage — An often-overlooked aspect of home security, the garage can be an entry point into your home. If you have an attached garage it is particularly important to ensure that it cannot be accessed by an intruder. An unprotected garage is practically an invitation into your residence. And if you use an opener to gain access to your garage, take it inside with you. A common method for burglars, who are looking to get into your garage, is to break into cars parked in the drive way then use the opener to get inside.
  • Watch What You Throw Out — Thieves inspect trash for boxes of large items, such as new televisions or appliances. If you have just installed a new valuable home good, it is the best practice to dispose of the packaging in a discreet manner. The best way to tip off burglars that something valuable is inside your house is to have its box sitting on the curb.
