Install Cameras for Surveillance

Prune Hedges and Bushes

High hedges and bushes near windows and doors can be easier for burglars to hide when trying to enter your home. If you are on a vacation or extended trip, you can place thorny plants near your door that could scratch or irritate the intruders. Therefore, planting smaller plants near the entrance is always a good idea.

Windows are considered the weakest entry point, which a burglar can easily break in to enter your home. Therefore, lock your windows when they are not in use, even when you are at home, or install a window sensor that will report the opening and closing of windows.
