1. Get Into the Mind of a Burglar!
Now, this doesn’t mean going all method and actually becoming one. It’s more about taking a step back and appraising your home security from the point-of-view of a would-be thief.
Analyse the types of burglar bars you’ve chosen; make sure there’s no overgrown shrubbery that obscures or provides a handy hiding place; and get really shifty and check for grates or vents that can be easily removed. It could even be as simple as imagining you’re locked out of your house and trying to find a way to break in!
2. The Keys to Your Castle
Ensure your hidden key is exactly that. Chances are a would-be thief has enough experience to pick out your concealed set of keys, so why not try asking a trusted to friend to guess where it is? If they find it, try again until they’re left searching your premises incredulously. And, one more thing: this might seem obvious but DO NOT put your address on any set of keys. This is an open invitation to a criminal!
