- Have exterior lighting, motion sensor activated lights, and cameras are a PLUS!
- Maintain your landscaping. Keep bushes below window height, this limits hiding areas for criminals.
- Keep it tidy. Remove junk or clutter.
- Display warning signs such as "Beware of Dog" or "Home Alarm System".
- Do not advertise new purchases. Boxes for new televisions or electronics should be cut up and hidden in your trash for garbage day.
- Make sure you have a good quality deadbolt and you USE it. The deadbolt should extend a full 1" into the door frame for optimum security. Higher security locks such as Medeco are pick proof and wrench proof.
