(TacticalNews.com) – Your home is your sanctuary, and you don’t want anyone to intrude — whether you’re present or not. Still, far too many people fail to realize the amount of danger they put themselves and their residents in nearly every day. Let’s look at some of the mistakes people make that can endanger their homes.
People lock themselves out of the house by accident all the time. To avoid getting into this situation, some individuals keep a spare key somewhere in the yard. This approach is problematic. No matter how ingenious you think you are, a burglar who makes a living off of home invasions likely knows all the best spots to conceal a key.
Instead, you should install a keypad deadbolt. Not only does the lock allow you to access your home quickly, but you can also set temporary codes for people that legitimately need to gain entry to your home while you’re away. In addition, codes are easy to remove.
Going on vacation is great. Just remember that while it may be tempting to show off your adventures via social media, it’s also a security breach. You may be wondering how on Earth can posting on social media threaten my home. Well, by announcing to the world that you’re on vacation, you’re relaying a message that no one is present to protect your space or belongings. So, if you must post on social media, be sure to have someone watching your house.
