One of the biggest enemies of home security is thinking 
“It won’t happen to me” Although we all know that  
prevention is important,
most people don’t take the steps they need to protect their 
home and family. 
Whether it’s installing a monitored home security system,
or just being able 
to identify potential risks of hidden dangers, such as fire and           
carbon monoxide throughout your home, these precautions
can help create a safer environment
to live in.
So what can you do better to protect your home and family 
from fire, 
break-ins or medical emergencies?
WHO'S THERE?
The first step to keeping unwelcome visitors out is to 
protect the entrances
to your home.

THE FRONT DOOR
A locked front door is your first line of defense. And with locks,
you get what 
you pay for. By spending a few dollars more for a good lock, 
you can potentially save thousands. 
So get the best quality locks you can afford. 
We recommend deadbolt locks. 
Deadbolts provide better security than sliding locks because
they can’t be opened without a key. 
Bored-in deadlocks that are embedded into the door 
are even harder for a burglar to get through.
Without a deadlock, burglars may be able to open
your front door simply by using a credit card to push back the tongue of the lock. 
Doors with exposed hinges are even more vulnerable 
because a burglar can simply remove the pin on the hinge 
and get inside.
Locks are just the beginning. 
Another good investment is a peephole.
 180-degree peepholes give you the advantage of checking 
to see who’s at the door before you open it. 
And make sure that the area outside 
your door is well-lit. If you can’t see who’s at the door, 
don’t open it.

JUST MOVED IN?
If you’ve just moved into your new home, it’s a good idea 
to replace all the locks.
Locks only provide security if you know who has every key.
Pay for a qualified and reputable locksmith to change your locks.
And keep track of all the keys you have made. 
This is especially important if there have been a lot of 
previous owners.
The only keys to your new home should be the ones you have made.

A WINDOW OF OPPORTUNITY?
To help prevent burglars from getting into your home through 
a window,install locks or pins. 
We recommend using the same brand of lock for all your 
windows so it’s easy and convenient to use them. 
And that’s an important point, because when safety and 
convenience are at odds, convenience usually wins. 
Make sure to keep the key in a safe but easy-to-access
location so you can get to it quickly if there’s a fire.
Also keep any trees or shrubs around windows trimmed. 
While they may seem to increase your privacy, 
they also increase a burglar’s
privacy while they’re breaking into your home.

IN THE SPOTLIGHT
Two of a burglar’s biggest enemies are noise and light. 
Installing lights around your home that are activated by 
movement can help scare off unwelcome visitors. 
Exterior sensor lights also 
help to light the path to your front door when you come home. 
It’s also a good idea to use timers to light inside areas of
your home if you’re home alone or away. 
Setting these economical timers gives the appearance that 
someone is at home, and is a good way to make
sure you’re consistently protected.

ALARMING YOUR HOME
A security system is your best protection. 
There are two main types of security systems available: 
a local alarm and a monitored system. 
Local alarms are designed to make a lot of noise to help 
scare off a potential intruder.
A fully monitored system doesn’t just make a lot of noise, 
it sends an emergency signal to a monitoring center so that
the right people can respond in case of an emergency. 
Another benefit of having a monitored home security 
system is that it may qualify you for up to a 20% discount 
on your homeowner’s insurance.

Here’s a list of things to think about when considering
monitored alarm systems:
  1. Is the system easy to use?
  2. Does the system come with a maintenance plan to cover parts and service?
  3. Does the system have a rechargeable backup battery?
  4. Is the system connected to a UL-Listed, 24-hour monitoring center?
  5. Who does the monitoring, and what is their experience and reputation?
  6. Can the system help protect you against fire, carbon monoxide                poisoning, household  flooding  and other dangers, as well as burglary?








HOME SECURITY CHECKLIST
  1. Turn the telephone and answering machine volume down when you go out so burglars can’t hear that no one’s home.
  2. Don’t leave notes for family or friends outside your home.
  3. Don’t leave tools or ladders lying around your yard since impulse                 burglars can use them to gain access into your home.
  4. Install sensor lights at all outside entrances.
  5. Remove any shrubs or trees next to your home that could hide a                 potential burglar from sight.
  6. Install a monitored security system, and make sure all members of your household know how to use it.
  7. Install deadbolt locks on your outside doors and make sure all door               hinges are on the inside.
  8. Lock garage doors and sliding glass doors every night and whenever                   you are away from home.
  9. Don’t hide keys outside your home, such as in your mailbox, under      doormats or above doorways. Burglars usually know where they are.
  10. If you’re planning to go away, either have your mail picked up       by a trusted neighbor or have your local post office stop delivery until           you get back. You’ll also want to cancel any other regular         deliveries such as newspapers.
  11. Tell relatives or neighbors when you’ll be back and let them know       where you can be reached in an emergency.
  12. When you buy a new appliance such as a TV or computer,  destroy    the box or hide it in your trash so others won’t          know you have something new and valuable inside.
  13. Videotape, photograph and keep a written register of all your    valuables   and their serial numbers.
  14. Store valuable documents such as insurance policies and wills in a                  safety deposit box.
  15. Program emergency contact numbers into your phone memory  and  clearly label them so it will be easy to dial them in an emergency.
  16. Every six months or so, inspect your home as if you’ve been             locked out without your keys. How would you get in?                     Examine any weak spots and realize  that if you can get inside,        so could someone else.
  17. Check to see if there’s an active Neighborhood Watch association            in your community. This program helps keep you updated on         problems in your neighborhood, and gets more          people to help watch and protect your home and family.If there is no active Neighborhood Watch group in your community,   contact your local law enforcement agency to  find out how you can start one.
