The Best Home Security Tips (From Real Life Ex-Burglars)

Be More Cautious than the Neighbors

Although this might not sound fair, it’s just a fact of life. However secure your home is, make sure it is at least as secure as your neighbors’ homes.

For example, if you have motion-activated security lights and your neighbor doesn’t, guess which house a burglar is going to try and break into? Thieves aren’t choosy about which property they target – they just want the easiest one. 

So if they see you have security lights, a ‘beware of the dog’ sign and a security alarm, they’re going to try your neighbor’s place instead.
