This is usually a burglar’s last target since kitchens have too many drawers to look through, and they’re more likely to plan a theft that allows them to quickly go in and out.
Most burglars will try to escape through the back, so making this process harder for them will increase the chances of them getting caught.
Burglars get their information from everywhere, so sometimes saying less is best.
This serves as a pretty clear indicator that you haven’t been home, so consider asking a neighbor or close family member to pick it up every day.
There’ll be many times where we’ll do this without even noticing, like when we make a quick stop at the neighbors to drop something off. Sometimes a quick stop can turn into a long conversation, making you lose track of time.
Investing in a wireless security system would be a great fix for this problem, so you don’t have to go through the hassle of hiding all your wires.
Neighbors are usually the first to notify you have suspicious strangers roaming the neighborhood, so keeping good relations with them can increase your efforts of maintaing a safe home.
These are probably the first places anyone will look for a spare key, as they are the most obvious. Even if you think you live in a safe neighborhood, one small mistake can cost you a fortune.
These strangers may be burglars trying to learn more about your home so they can plan their theft. Checking up on them every couple minutes can keep potential invaders from snooping around.
Usually, this will be enough to make a burglar think twice before invading your home. Even just the site of security cameras can scare invaders away.
