The four things burglars hate are: Light, Noise, Exposure and Time.

Records show that most burglaries are done during the hours of 10am to 2:30 pm. Why? Dad’s at work and mom’s out doing her errands while the kids are at school. He’ll be home around 5:30 pm but mom wants to be home when the kids get home from school. This time of day he has all the natural light he needs.

Noise .A security system should have the loudess siren on it. Even if you do not have the system monitored, which is not good, he knows he’s been detected and will flee the home. This also why he would rather kick in a door than break a window. Windows make a distinct noise when they break alerting your neighbors. Doors just a low thud noise. Put good locks and dead-bolts on all doors.

Exposure. Does your home have high shrubberies, dense trees, stockade fencing or something that will give a burglar a place where he can’t be seen? Trim the shrubs so they are no taller than waist high.

Time is the burglars most worst enemies. Most burglars are in your home only three to ten minutes. They have a system of where to go to grab what they want and leave as fast as they can. Don’t leave items out to cut down on the time it takes to steal from you.

Start looking at your home inside and out as a burglar would do.
