The knowledgeable experts at Best Locksmiths make it their primary objective to help homeowners protect their property by providing home locking solutions designed to keep you and your family safe.

Ways to Avoid & Deter Home Burglary Invasion Break-Ins

Keep your blinds and curtains drawn – While this may seem obvious, it is often something we forget to do. Many insurance companies suggest keeping blinds closed to keep valuable items hidden from view and make it much less tempting for would be intruders to want to break into your home.
Properly maintain your windows and sliding doors – the experts at Best Locksmiths caution that windows and sliding doors are some of the weakest entry spots to your home. Sliding windows and glass doors, especially older ones can be lifted off of their tracks allowing would be thief’s to easily gain access into your home. The security technicians at Best Locksmiths can examine these areas and ensure they are properly protected by installing security locking systems that will make it impossible for intruders to slide and lift the glass
Install Deadbolts – Many insurance companies along with the experts at Best Locksmiths recommend installing deadbolts on every entryway door. A double cylinder lock with a keyed opening on both sides is recommended. According to the security professionals at Best Locksmiths, a double-cylinder lock is perfect on a door that is located near a small window like those in a foyer. If the robber breaks the glass and attempts to reach in to open the door they won’t be able to get it open.
Exterior Lights – a good rule of thumb is to make sure that your home is bright and well-lit on the outside. The brighter the home, the less likely it is to be robbed. Motion-sensors work especially well at the front of the home and can essentially help guard your entrances and doorways as they are designed to light up when they sense movement as someone approaches.
Interior Lights on a Timer – When you spend time away from your home, it’s important that your home gives the illusion to anyone watching from the outside that someone is inside. A great solution is lights on a timer that can also include a radio, television or other electronics. The security technicians at Best Locksmiths recommend setting a timer to switch on about 30 to 45 minutes before it gets dark to make it more convincing. When combined with a radio or television, the impression that someone is at home can be very convincing. Activate the system during the day when you are away from home, not just in the evenings.
