Many burglaries can be prevented with simple strategies. Here are some general security tips to help deter burglars from attempting to enter your home:

Check your home for any weak points. This will make you aware of any easy points of entry that burglars could use  to get into your home. Keep all doors and windows closed and locked.

When you move into a new home, change all locks and windows. Old homeowners may still have access to your home if you do not change the locks.

Make sure that your house looks occupied at all times. This will turn away burglars that are looking for empty homes.

If you lose your keys, immediately change the locks.

Keep track of who gets copies of your keys. It’s important that you only give your keys to people who you trust completely.

Do not leave spare keys around your property. Burglars know where to look for spares.

Consider installing motion sensor lights outside your home. Burglars do not want to draw attention to themselves; this will turn them away.
