Do you ever worry about what would happen if someone broke into your home? Not necessarily while you were out but while you were in with the whole family. Imagine if all your family was tucked up warm in bed when suddenly you heard a crash downstairs. What would you do? What would happen? It’s a frightening scenario but one that could happen to you if you make these silly mistakes.
Leaving The Door Unlocked
Supposedly around thirty percent of people leave their Door unlocked when they are in. This means that people can literally walk in off the street. There are various trains of thought people have that cause them to not bother locking a door. One of the most common is the idea that someone would need to try the door to find out whether it’s locked. You’d be surprised how many burglars get into a home simply by pushing down on the door handle.
Lights On While You’re Away
You might think that leaving the lights on in the home while you’re away will prevent a burglary. If the lights are on all the time, then it can give the game away that no one’s in. Particularly if they are still on at 2 am in the morning. What you really need is a timer switch. This will turn the lights on at certain points and off at normal times making it look like there really is someone there.
No Alarm In Use
The last mistake would probably be not bothering with an alarm system. Alarms aren’t just about ensuring that your home is guarded. It also lets you know if someone has broken into your home. You can even get an alert while you’re out the house and that means you can take immediate action. The infographic below has the full list of advantages.
