An Advice from Locksmith Perth
Our homes, as we often claim, happen to be our safest and most comforting haven or so they should be. If it is not like that then it is merely because of our own mistakes and laziness that we open our homes to the dangers of robbery. So much so, we leave our homes unsafe without even realising it most of the times.
Here are a number of mistakes AMCO Locksmiths think you make that leave your homes vulnerable to burglars:
Burglars today are as smart as it gets. They can tell the difference between dummy cameras and the real deal quite easily. So do not underestimate the skills of the burglar as he might have been robbing homes for many years and must have come across many dummy security systems in his lifetime.
Publicising Your Absence
Some families, when they are leaving for a vacation, tend to announce their departure details and the duration of their vacation quite openly to their neighbourhood as well as on social media. While you may be just carelessly showing off, the burglars will make you a potential target and this could eventually lead to a great loss for you. So it is vital that you do not overshare on social media and keep the intimate details of your vacation to yourself or those closely related.
Unlocked Doors and Windows
It is not just important to keep the doors and windows of your house locked up when you are leaving the house. The burglars can attack in broad daylight during your presence too! Thus, you should keep the doors, windows, backdoor entrances and other potential ways in, locked at all times unless it is absolutely necessary to have them opened. It is essential that you are vigilant at all times and make no compromises on the security of your home.
Delaying or Avoiding Maintenance
Sometimes when the security system has been installed, you just expect it to work forever. This however, is not how it works. You have to have your system checked as regularly as possible. You could test it yourself or have it thoroughly checked for any malfunctioning by professionals at AMCO Locksmiths.
