1. Secure the doors
Don’t help a burglar stroll in through the front door (34% of them do!).
Inspect all of your exterior doors to make sure the door frames are strong, the hinges are protected, and if your door has a post slot that someone can’t reach through it to unlock the door.
If you’re moving into a residence that someone else used to call home, change the door locks. That way you won’t have strangers out there with a key to your house, and you can make sure your locks are the best on the market.
Here are some quick reinforcements we recommend to help you shore up these vital entryways.
Install a deadbolt.
Add a strike plate.
Upgrade to smart locks.
Boost security with a video doorbell.
