Don’t forget the garage
This entry point to your home is becoming more popular with criminals. Even if they can’t access your house, chances are you have plenty of good stuff stored in the garage. Make it a habit to lock all doors to the garage—both interior and exterior.
You may also consider keeping your garage door opener in the house. That way a burglar can’t grab it out of your car. And if you use a security code to open the garage, make sure you keep it secret and never enter it in front of delivery people, neighbors, or anyone else.
Here are some more easy ways to secure the garage.
Upgrade to a smart garage door opener.
Cover windows to hide the goodies inside.
Secure garage doors with extra locks.
Use home automation—and never leave the garage door open again.
