Janco Security Tips
whether or not you have an alarm system in place – keeping potential burglars out is the best first step towards securing your home.
JANCO SECURITY SAFTEY TIPS MAY PREVENT A BURGLAR FROM ATTEMPTING YOUR LOCATION
Upgrade Exterior Locks
Older homes often have inadequate locks – make sure you have solid deadbolts on all entrances. Solid-core doors are a must as well. A good lock is worthless if it secures a flimsy hollow door.
Keep Your House Visible
Overgrown bushes and trees are attractive hiding places for thieves as they look for ways into your home. The same goes for tall fencing that hides your property.
Bar the Basement
Basement windows are often easily broken into without attracting too much attention. Put bars in place to prevent entry through your basement.
Make Sure Your House Looks Occupied
If you’re going to be away on vacation or extended trips, use timers to turn on lights in the evenings. Also, make sure someone picks up your mail and newspapers, and consider having someone park in your driveway or move your cars periodically.
Don't Forget Upper Story Windows
Many homeowners concentrate on windows they could reach – forgetting that home burglars often gain access by climbing trees or fences. Make sure your family locks those entries too.
Install Exterior Lighting
Motion-sensor lights are relatively inexpensive and a great crime deterrent. Use them at each door and garage, and make sure they’re out of easy reach.
