Home Security: How To Make Your Home Burglar-Resistant

So you lost your car keys and now you can’t get in your car? We’ve all been there at one point, or if we haven’t, then Murphy’s law tells us that it will happen – probably at the worst imaginable time! Like for example you are miles from home with no spare key and you really have to be in a meeting, or you just stopped by a convenience store to pick up some groceries, but you really don’t want to walk home in THAT neighborhood!

Installing window locks yourself will cost AUD$15-$20 per window. Having these locks supplied and installed by a Locksmith London will cost $40-$50 per window.

The simplest method of preventing lock-outs is simply to carry a spare key on your person, not in your handbag, not in your glove box, but actually on your person. This can be easier said than done of course, particularly for women, where different clothing may not exactly be a good fit for that. There are ways to get around it, for example by wearing a key chain around your neck, but that’s hardly comfortable. Wearing a hard, sharp object like that may even scratch or injure you if you fall, so let’s count that out for the moment.

You do not need the mail or the newspaper to arrive while you are away. So call the postal service and your other local subscriptions and make sure that all deliveries are stopped while you are gone. Leaving a pile of newspapers or even mail in the mailbox is a clear indicator to potential robbers that you are not home.

You are probably asking if you read it right. Lock picking is often connected with burglaries and criminal offenses so it may come as a wonder how it can offer protection. Think of it this way. The Federal Bureau of Investigation hires cyber criminals to be able to check for susceptability in their systems. If you know the skills needed to defeat locks, then you understand their susceptability and you can do something about it. If you know that a certain type of lock can be exposed utilizing paperclips in a couple of seconds, then you would strengthen it even more.

The number one step to home security is a heavy-duty quality lock on all of your exterior doors and windows. Doors with windows in them or next to them should have a double deadbolt. A double deadbolt is a lock that locks on the inside of the door with a key as well as the outside. In the event the glass is broken, a burglar cannot simply reach in and unlock the door.

The venting position is not as secure as when the window is shut and locked. Therefore you should only leave your windows locked open you are at home.

Combination locks for doors have a number pad and often have the addition of electronic circuitry to make them more secure. The advantage is you don’t need a key to gain entry to your house but the disadvantage is that someone could find the code. The number should be changed regularly to increase your home’s security.
