Who knows better how vulnerable your home is to a potential break-in than those who do the breaking in? In an age of ever-increasing technology, from smartphones to smart homes, it’s not surprising that criminals are stepping up their game as well. More burglars are casing homes for days and doing research about homeowners, neighbors, and neighborhoods.

Lock it down- Even though locking your house up tight seems like a no-brainer, there are many ways your home can remain vulnerable even if you think you’ve done all you can.

Clear the way-While it may look lovely to have a hedge of bushes lining the front or side of your house, those decorative shrubs can be akin to leaving out a welcome mat for a thief. Robbers love to hide out in bushes under windows and near doors.

Think outside the sock drawer-Believe it or not, burglars know that you really do hide your valuables in the sock drawer, freezer or empty cereal box. It’s surprising that even though such hiding places seem like overblown clichés, they are very common and some of the first places a burglar will look.

Be less hospitable-Dark perimeters and nicely paved driveways just beckon a burglar to take a closer look at your home. Outside lighting is crucial, and listed as one of the best deterrents for keeping thieves away. Look into floodlights that are triggered by motion–nothing’s more off-putting to an intruder than being in the spotlight.

Fight fire with fire-Burglars are getting more sophisticated and professional, so it’s time for you to do the same. One of the best ways to ensure ongoing security for your belongings and family is to install an alarm system.
