1. Fake Them Out
Do you usually keep the key under the doormat? This time around, it’s time to play a game with the potential burglar. How? Just hide a random key (preferably one that cannot unlock something inside the house) and hide it under the doormat but glue it down.
When they try to do that, they will realize it’s a trap, so they will run off. Cool, right? I will definitely try this!
2. Lock the Windows
In general, people pay more attention to whether the door is locked or not, but they forget about the windows. Some random person that used to commit a few acts of burglary in high school said that if someone cannot get in through the door, they will check through the window to see if it’s open.
So pay attention next time you want to leave your house, even if it’s for a short period of time.
