protecting your home from break-ins, check the easiest points of entry: doors
solid wood or steel doors. Hollow wood doors can easily be kicked in.
doors with the hinges on the inside of the door so hinges cannot be easily removed.
your pet door when you are away.
the electric garage door completely close when you come and go so that someone
cannot sneak under as it closes.
sure back doors and the door that connects your garage to your home are solid
and secured with high security deadbolt locks.
not leave gaps around the door frame that would make doors vulnerable to prying.
sure your windows can be securely locked.
windows (the ones that slide up and down) are fairly safe, particularly if they
have locks mounted on the sides or in the corners.
