Remember to lock all doors and windows when you leave the home.
Keep all valuable items out of sight.
Install proper lighting around your home to keep it well lit at night.
Motion lights, flood lights, and similar lighting can be used to brighten the property.
Start a Neighborhood Watch Program and report any suspicious person and/or activity in your neighborhood.
When you are out of town, have a trusted neighbor pick up your newspapers and mail daily or have the post office and news carrier hold them for you.
Engrave your property to deter theft and aid in the recovery of stolen property. Marking your property provides a visual deterrence to theft as well as aiding law enforcement agencies in the identification and recovery of stolen property. Use your Driver's License #, never your Social Security #. Engrave your property in a conspicuous place. Keep good records of the items marked and the location marked.
Set timers for lights and a television so it appears that someone is home while you are traveling.
Do not hide spare keys in obvious places such as: under doormats, in the mailbox, etc. Give a key to a neighbor that you trust.
Whenever you move to a new home, have the locks changed.
Sliders should have ventilation locks as well as auxiliary locks to bolster security.
Keep shrubs around your windows and doors trimmed to eliminate hiding places for intruders.
Utilize sturdy, solid wood or metal doors at all entrances to your home.
Make sure that all exterior doors have well-made deadbolt locks.
Install a wide-angle lens viewer in your front door to make it possible to see who is there without having to open it.
Have a security system installed and monitored for each point-of-entry. A security system only works if you arm it. So, remember to set your alarm every night as well as each time you're away from home.
Do not give out your alarm code to just anyone. Only a family member or trusted friend should know the code in case of an emergency.
These are safety tips brought to you by Paxton Locksmithing, A local Fresno Locksmth company based in Fresno,Ca
1. Make sure your deadbolts latch extends all the way inside the door frame. If it does not fully extend you are not fully protected.
2.Know who has your keys? Are you sure? For peace of mind re-key your locks so the old keys will not work. In many case you can also have just one key that operates all your locks.
3.Don't leave your personal home or business keys on your key ring while at the car wash or having your vehicle serviced. Its very easy for someone to make copies of your keys very quickly while they are out of your possession.
4.If you have a perimeter door around your home that only has a door knob, please consider installing a deadbolt. Deadbolts offer much more protection against break-ins than a standard door knob alone.
