Whether you’re urban or rural, by the road or by the sea, every home is a target for a potential burglar. There are things you can do to keep your home safe. Here are more security tips from Activate Security – leading Brisbane Crimsafe licensee.
- Add a bolt lock or place a rod to block and secure glass sliding doors.
- Ensure your answering machine voice message does not say that you’re not home. Simply state that you are unavailable or cannot come to the phone.
- Overgrown trees and shrubs are prime hiding spots, so ensure they’re well-maintained.
- However, thorny bushes near windows act as a deterrent.
- Use Crimsafe security screens to secure basement or garage doors and windows.
