Many of us don’t want to have to invest in large automated security systems to protect our homes. However we all want to feel safe and secure in our houses. There are some easy ways to make sure your home maintains a decent level of security, without having to invest in expensive equipment.
Lock the doors
This may sound like something you’d tell a child, but locking your doors, even when you’re at home can give you peace of mind. You will also get into the habit of doing it, meaning you’re less likely to leave your house unlocked when you leave.
Close the curtains
Keeping your curtains closed stops criminals from looking in to see things they might want to break in for. Blinds or net curtains can work too, so long as nobody can see in.
Don’t leave things outside
Garden furniture, children’s toys, barbecue’s and equipment all often get left outside and are common items that could be easily taken.
