Making Your Home More Secure

October 17, 2017

Home insurance often covers the cost of damage and/or lost possesions associated with a break-in, but there are also ways to make your home less susceptible to crime.

Your home should be visible from the street. To make sure your home is visible, keep all shrubs trimmed down, make sure all entryways are well lit with motion-sensor lighting, and avoid trees and lawn ornaments in the front yard that could create hiding places for would-be thieves.

All entry doors should be equipped with dead bolt locks. These are affordable and may be bought at your local home improvement store. Installing these locks could prevent your doors from being kicked in, which is the one of the most common ways burglars enter homes. You should also consider installing a third-party security system. These systems are designed to monitor your home while you are away and could be a great way to scare off would-be intruders.

No neighborhood is immune to crime, but a few small home modifications can decrease your chances of becoming a victim!
