Install security lighting around the exterior of your home. Utilize motion sensor lights. Solid front door vs. hollow-core door. Select doors with less glass. Invest in a good lock – single vs. double cylinder (bump proof) Lock windows, garage doors and basement doors Secure your garage door opener. Close blinds Make your home look occupied when you are not there Stop mail, newspapers, etc. when you are traveling. Dont advertise with your garbage by putting out a boxes of expensive items like flat screen TV you just bought. Dont put your name on your mailbox or key chain.
