Are you windows burglar proof?

Windows that swings or have awnings are the best bet for windows rather than sliding ones. But if you already have sliding ones, don’t fret. Solutions are everywhere. Make sure that the locks on these doors work properly. Key locks are better than sash locks when you have sliding windows.

One way to do that when you already have your do it yourself home security system is to turn on the outdoor lights. You can always program your system the time when to switch it on. Porches both in front and back should also have motion-detectors.

One more technique is to program the time when the bedroom and the living room lights are switched on. You can also program your television to turn on at around 8 p.m. This way, the thief would be led to think that there are people watching the boob tube.
