Thieves are always on the look out for their next victim, and we want to prevent that from happening. Here at In the Sky, we think that there are just some home security “don’ts” that everyone should stop doing. They’re quite simple really, but practicing any of the three mentioned below can leave you and your family vulnerable at the comfort of your own home.
Beat thieves at their game and stop doing the following:
Don’t leave your keys under the doormat. Even an amateur burglar can see this coming. Sadly, many people still practice this simple home security mistake leaving them vulnerable to predators. It doesn’t just stop at door mats either. These could be simple items like potted plants, and any other spots that are found outdoors. Instead of leaving your keys out, have a trusted neighbor to hang on to a copy for you.
Leaving your name on the mailbox seems harmless, but creative thieves can do a simple online lookup for your phone number. Why would they want to do this? They will call to see if you’re home. It sounds a little chilling to hear, right?
Don’t buy locks that can easily be opened by a bump key. These certain keys are easily obtainable at a very cheap price. This makes thieves feel quite invited to enter your home when you make it so easy for them. Sadly, bump keys work on about ninety percent of most locks. So, stay away from them as much as possible.
