    • Holiday Home Security
    • Home for the Holidays
      The holidays are among us. For many, “home for the holidays” means going away to visit family, leaving your home, and your valuables, unattended.
    • Burglary Statistics
      Many people leave town without taking the proper precautions to keeping their home and their belonging safe while they are gone. But shocking statistics prove home security should be taken seriously.
      National Statistics
      A burglary takes place every about every 14 seconds
      9% of criminals enter homes through the garage
      12% of burglaries occur via unlocked doors
      22% of thieves enter homes through the back door
      23% of thieves come in through a first floor window
      32% of burglaries happen without force
      34% of robbers come in through the front door
      60% of home burglaries occur during the day
      60% of burglaries involve forced entry
      65% of burglaries involve residential properties
      85% of all burglary attempts are successful
      88% of burglars are never caught

    • Don’t be a Statistic
      What can you do to provide peace of mind that your home is safe while you are away?
      The following home security tips will help you deter burglars while you and your family are away, allowing you to enjoy your holiday vacation.
    • Lights
      A home with no lights on signals to others that no one is home. Don’t be an easy target; throw thieves off by signaling there are people home by making precautions to properly light your home while you are gone.
      Install motion censored lights on the exterior of your home.
      Use electric timers to turn on the radio and interior lights at different times throughout the day and night.
      Most burglars will suspect someone is home and skip your home when the lights and radio are on.
    • Privacy
      Burglars often times scope out houses to rob based on the valuables they see inside. During the holidays, many people have gifts for friends and family, making their homes even more enticing for thieves.
      Keep valuables away from exterior windows.
      Install window coverings on all exterior doors and windows.
      Block garage windows with drapes or paint them solid.
      Keep your garden and lawn tools out of sight and locked up.
    • Locks
      Sounds like a no-brainer, but many people step out to take out the trash, walk the dog, or run a quick errand without locking the door. Whether you’re leaving for vacation or staying put, make sure you don’t allow easy access for a robber to enter and exit your home.
      Lock all exterior doors and windows.
      Secure sliding glass doors by inserting a metal rod or stick in the inside track.
      If you have a hide-a-key, find a secure location to keep it. It’s safer to leave a spare key with a neighbor you trust.
