Ways to Make Your Home Less Attractive for
Break-Ins

  • Home break-ins happen all over the world, and it
    has happened more often in some parts of
    California. There are ways to make your home less
    of a target and harder for intruders to break
    into. The San Jose Police Department has some
    great tips, and I have listed a few below.

  • 1. Set indoor lamps on timers. This is so when
    you are away, it still appears as if somebody is
    home.
  • 2. Have motion detectors on your outside lights.
  • 3. Trim all shrubs and trees away from your home.
    These can give potential intruders cover to hide
    behind.
  • 4. Lock your windows and doors! This seems
    simple, but a lot of people fail to check locks
    before they leave for the day, or go to bed.

  • 5. Install deadbolts on all exterior doors.
    Handle locks alone are easily broken into.
  • 6. If you dont have timers for your lamps, leave
    lights on in your home while you are away.
  • 7. Set your alarm. A lot of people who have alarm
    systems dont even set them because it is a
    hassle. It will not work if it is not armed!
  • 8. Get a security system. There are a lot of
    companies that offer free installation with a
    contract, or a special rate if you pay for
    installation.

    systems dont even set them because it is a
    hassle. It will not work if it is not armed!
  • 10. Alarm company decals and signs outside of
    your home can deter intruders.
  • 11. If you are going out of town, stop mail and
    newspaper services so it doesnt pile up.
  • 12. Sliding glass doors are easily broken into.
    Use extra locks and precautions such as a lock
    bar to prevent intrusion.

  • 13. Store bikes, grills, and lawnmowers out of
    sight if you dont have a shed.
  • 14. If you do have a shed, make sure it is
    locked.
  • 15. Put curtains up on basement and garage
    windows.
  • 16. When you purchase or move into a new home,
    change all of the exterior locks.
  • 17. A lot of newer windows have security tabs or
    pins that you can pull out to keep your window
    from opening more than a few inches.
