Our first tip will cost just a bit of cash, but it is well worth it. Ensure that you have a deadlock fitted in your outside doors. A deadlock needs a key to rotate the cylinder and it is quite different from a spring loaded lock that’s a lot less secure. Call a locksmith and receive this attended too straight away.

When you go off on vacation, or are away from home, use timers for safety. Set up three or more timers in various rooms of the home to turn off and on lights and a radio through the day and evening. This will make it seem as if someone’s in the home and should help deter thieves.
