  • Does your home always appear lived in?
  • Do You have dead-bolt locks on all doors?
  • Are the pins in the hinges to your doorways secured?
  • Do you have good locks or latches on all your windows?
  • Do you keep control of house keys and never leave them hidden outside your home?
  • Are you present when having keys made?
  • Are all doors and windows locked, including garage doors?
  • Do you remove items such as ladders, which allow easy access to second storey windows, from around your house?
  • Do you lock-up your tools? Burglars may use them to break into your home.
