What Attracts Burglars to a Home?


Luckily, there are a few measures you can take that will lessen the chance of a thief finding their way into your home.

Every home is at risk for an invasion, but some are more prone than others to be targeted.  You’re probably wondering what factors make your home less attractive to burglars, as you certainly don’t want your home to be their next pick.  Luckily, there are a few measures you can take that will lessen the chance of a thief finding their way into your home.  Curious?  Read on to find out what will attract criminals.

1. A lack of alarm system

Alarm systems usually come with sign posts that you can place in your front yard, advertising that you’ve got protection enabled.  This is a great deterrent against thieves.  Many will consider the home not worth their effort, and move onto a different target.  And if a burglar happens to break in, the alarm will have more of a chance of scaring them off.  

2. Using the wrong locks

If you’ve just got one lock on your front door, it is actually surprisingly easy to kick the door open.  Plus, those who are skilled at picking locks will be inside within a matter of seconds.  Make sure your door is secure; install a deadbolt, and replace your door knob lock with a brand new one.  This will help protect your door from being kicked in.

3. Turning off your lights

Many people turn off their lights when they’re not home in order to save energy.  But because lighting hardly makes a dent in your energy bill anyway, this isn’t worth the risk.  Burglars will be deterred by homes that are lit up, because it may appear as though someone is home.  Investing in a home automation system will allow you to control the lights from afar, so you can save energy during the day if it gets dark before you get home from work.
