According to FBI statistics, around 1.5 million burglaries took place in the US alone in 2017. But is there a way to protect your home from burglars if you can’t afford an expensive security system? Bright Side has collected simple yet effective tips that will help you protect your home and even discourage thieves from breaking into your property.

One of the popular way to enter a property is through first-floor windows. FBI reports show that around 23% of burglars in the US choose this way of entering homes. That’s why you should consider installing grilles if you live on the first or second floor. Don’t forget that you should have an escape route in case of an emergency, so buy grilles that can be unlocked. If you want to know what other ways to protect your home are, watch the video!

SUMMARY:
- While a plumber is fixing something under your sink, they have enough time to have a look around. They can turn out to be bad guys who inform their accomplices.
- Some thieves get creative and use a landline phone trick where they call your home phone and wait for an answer. If no one picks up a phone, it means that nobody’s home.
- The locks most at risk of lock snapping are cylinder ones; the most complicated locks are those that can be opened with lever keys.
- Make it easy for the police to identify your house. Put a large reflective number on your house and mailbox. Burglars like to get into dark houses to win some extra moments to get out again.
- Thieves are scared of being caught. A simple but extremely effective way of scaring them off is putting out a sign that says “Protected Property.” This trick will make burglars think twice before breaking in.
- If you’re throwing away the box from a new TV or refrigerator, you’re likely to attract potential burglars who’ll want to steal your new item. To avoid trouble, tear the box apart before throwing it away.
- Imagine you’re leaving your home for a while. You’re already in the street, and you suddenly notice a strange person. They might be waiting for you to leave so they can break in. Don’t be shy! Turn around, and wave your hand as if someone stayed at home.
- If you notice scratches on your lock, it might mean that burglars have tried to open it. Before you open the door and enter your home, check your lock so that you can react quickly if there’s an emergency.
- If windows are curtained for a few days in a row, it can indicate that nobody’s home as there aren’t many people who like to live without sunlight.
- To turn an ordinary fence into a barrier, plant something with abrasive foliage (like a dog rose or dewberry plant). You can also plant roses right under your windows.
- You should be careful with unfamiliar service companies that call and ask questions about your workplace and hours or about the people who live with you. It’s one of the methods thieves use to find out the history of a property and the most suitable time for breaking in.
