Testing Your Home’s Security

In order to know how well something works (or is going to work if it newly being applied) is to test it. Before someone buys a car or even a new couch, they are able to test out what it would be like to own that particular item so they can avoid any type of surprises they may not like later on.

When it comes to the security of your home, the same can be accomplished. Here are some great questions to ask¬†which essentially aid in ‘casing the joint’ in order to determine the effectiveness of your current security methods and see if upgrading may be in your best interest:

  • Are there areas around my home that would offer cover for a bad guy to break in without being seen?
  • Is my house well-lit at night?
  • Do I have any unlocked doors or windows?
  • Can I easily see valuables in my home from the street?
  • Do the people in my home have routines that would make it easy for a burglar to figure out when would be the best time to hit my house? (Patrick Allan, lifehacker.com)
