Our homes should be the one place in this world where we can truly feel safe and secure, but unfortunately there are some people in the world who will try to violate that security for the sake of theft and burglary. So how do you keep your home safe from break-ins?
- Make your house look like a home: An empty house is the most inviting target for a would-be burglar, so keep your home looking like someone is living inside (even if you’re out of the house) by regularly bringing in your mail, keeping your landscaping neat (and in MN, your driveway and sidewalks shoveled), and leaving a light or two on while you’re gone.
- Light up the night: Don’t give thieves the shadows to hide in–a well-lit property can be more safe from burglary. And you don’t need massive stadium lights either; even subtle outdoor accent lighting can deter break-ins.
- Update (all) your locks: Sure you just put a new fancy deadbolt on your front door, but how’s the hardware on those garden-level basement windows or your garage door? And even if all your hardware is up-to-date, when was the last time you had your locks rekeyed? You may think you’ve only given key copies to trusted friends and family, but if it’s been 20 years then who knows how many are floating around!
