You've got locks, bolts and alarms. But is your home as safe as it could be? There's always more you can do.
· Large bushes and shrubs near doors are great hiding spots, so move them if you can.
· Installing lights that switch on whenever anyone passes.
· Front door bells with tiny cameras link to your smartphone so you can see who's at the door even if you're not home.
· Use timers that switch indoor lights on and off while you're away so the home seems occupied. (But don’t forget to also let your neighbors know you'll be away so they can keep an eye on your place as well).
