When you own a home, you want to be certain that you have some of the most advanced security possible in order to keep your treasured belongings (and your loved ones) safe. When you don’t equip your home with the right security systems, it is exposed to potential break-ins. Did you know, however, that there are ways besides high-tech security systems that can make your home vulnerable to possible burglars? To learn about what these weak spots are, we here at Smart Vision Plus are here to help. 

Unlocked Doors & Windows 

This one is easy to overlook, but has been made by mistake time and time again by people from around the world. A lot of people will assume that if they live in a relatively safe neighbourhood that there is nothing to worry about. Sometimes, a person will leave their home unlocked because they are only leaving for a short amount of time. It is important to note that even in these times of a break-in being unlikely, there is always a chance for someone to spot this weakness and take their opportunity. This is especially true if a burglar/robber has been monitoring the area and is aware of people’s open doors and windows. In a lot of other cases, burglars will go door-to-door until they find a home that is unlocked. Regardless of how this instance happens, you want to be as safe as possible. This means locking all of your doors and windows whenever you leave the home and no one is there. 

Dim/Unlit Entryways 

One of the main aspects that burglars look for when breaking into a home is a poorly lit home, both in the exterior and the interior. This is because a poorly lit/unlit home often indicates that no one is there, making it easier to break in and steal any valuables. Better, more bright lights also put the burglar at a much higher chance to be exposed by security cameras/anybody nearby. If you want to be sure that burglars are more likely to stay away from your home, add more lights into your entryway and brighten up your home. 

Open/Unlocked Garage Doors 

Out of all of the other weak spots in/on the home, this one is one of the most overlooked. This is probably due to the fact that garages are not only large, but loud when opened as well, leading people to assume no one will even attempt it. In addition, a large majority of garages do not connect to the main part of a home, meaning that people don’t see it as something too harmful to their safety/belongings. This could not be farther from the truth, however. 

There are many ways for a burglar to sneak into a garage and make little noise. In other cases, you may store a lot of very important valuables inside of your garage, which can easily be exposed when your garage door is unlocked. In cases that involve your home being connected to your garage, the risk is even greater. To avoid all of these issues, it is always best to make sure your garage door is locked before you head to bed or leave the home.
