5 SAFETY TIPS FOR YOUR HOME: SIMPLE STEPS YOU CAN TAKE TO WARD OFF THE UNINVITED
With the holidays approaching, now is a good time to take stock of the safety and security of your home. People travel a lot during the holidays. You want to make sure that your home is as safe as possible so that you don’t become a robbery victim while your house is unattended, or worse – while you are home!
The best thing to do is to take a proactive approach. Use these five safety tips to protect your family from the emotional distress caused by a break in.
1. Install a smart doorbell
Smart doorbells allow you to see the outside of your home from anywhere just by looking at an app on your phone. If you want to add a quick layer of protecting your home, look at video doorbell options such as Ring.

2. Install locks on windows
Most widows already have locks, but you would be surprised how many don’t have them or have locks that are broken. When was the last time you thought about your window locks? Check your windows and consider installing aftermarket locks to secure your home.
3. Install deadbolts
Are you relying on just your doorknob to keep people out? Doorknobs can easily be forced open. Take the time to get a proper deadbolt lock installed on your door.
4. Buy a delivery box protection system
Millions of packages are stolen each year from porches. A doorbell camera such as Ring can help to identify the thief, but it will not prevent theft. Secure package delivery boxes can help.

5. Install motion-activated lights
There are many different motion-activated lights. These can deter someone from coming onto your property or alert you through a cell phone app when someone does so.
These tips may help keep your home safe. However, if you experience a break in, call the police and file an official report. Alert your insurance agent of any property damage or losses you suffered. If anyone was home at the time of the incident, you may need to file a personal injury lawsuit for injuries.
