  • Protect your windows with one or more good locks, a Beacon Protection alarm system, burglar-resistant glass, or many small panes instead of one large area of glass.


  • Reinforce the glass in windows on the lock sides of doors so a burglar cannot break them and reach in to open the door.


  • Plant rosebushes or cactus in front of all vulnerable windows. Thorny landscaping not only adds beauty to your home, but makes even getting close to such windows an unappealing prospect


  • Consider installing security bars on side, rear, or other windows that a burglar might break to enter your home. Bars must comply with Fire Code requirements for inside release to permit an occupant to escape in the event of a fire.


  • Keep all doors and windows locked, even if you are just going out “for a minute.” If a window is left open a few inches for ventilation, pins or dowels should be inserted in the tracks to prevent someone from opening it more.


  • After punching out a window a burglar can reach in and, with ease, open the deadbolt then the doorknob – elapsed time five seconds. Placing a secondary lock (i.e., a floor lock) outside of the reach of the windows is recommended. If that is too much, a double-key deadbolt is recommended for non-primary access doors. This secures the door while you are not at home.


  • Fence in the yard.


  • Control your home directly from your mobile phone. Control your lighting, locks and overall security directly from a smart phone or tablet.
