Make Your Home a Less Inviting Target
The easiest way into a home is the back door. Locks are only as good as the hardware on the door frame, and most dead bolt strike plates are held in place by two half-inch screws. Make sure you have a strike plate held in place by long screws that pass though the door frame and into the wall studs.
Thieves will almost always ring your doorbell to make sure you are not home. If you are home either answer the door or respond with some sign that the house is occupied. Ignoring a knock at your front door could lead to a break-in at your back door within minutes.
Burglars do not want to be noticed. If you have bushes in front of windows, keep them trimmed. Keep outdoor lights on during evening hours or install motion detectors. Alarms systems are also great deterrents. Make sure to display the alarm decal. Indiana Farmers Mutual, offers a discount for policyholders with a monitored alarm system.
Taking these preventive measures can make your home a less inviting target.
