It might not seem like something that needs to be explained. But believe me, it has to be. People are not very cautious in the suburbs. After all, we all like to believe we live in a good neighborhood until we are not. We think we are safe until something happens to prove otherwise.
Hence, lock the door and be safe instead of waiting for something bad to happen. It is free since your door probably already has a lock.
Join the Neighborhood Watch
Most suburban areas have a kind of neighborhood watch. It is mainly a group of volunteers among the neighbors who take turns patrolling their neighborhood as a deterrent to would-be thieves.
After all, thieves are cowards; they act in only when there is next to no chance that they will get caught. So, seeing someone patrolling the neighborhood is a great way to scare them into thinking twice about what they are about to do.
CCTV or Closed-Circuit Television is an effective way to monitor your property. It is a lot like having an extra set of eyes fixed on the area around your property. It follows the theme of the Neighborhood Watch.
Like I said thieves are generally cowardly and even the idea of a camera could see them when they do their illegal activities is already a good way to deter them. Worst case scenario the CCTV can be a witness to the act and help catch the perpetrator.
Get a Dog
Dogs are man's best friend. It is also true when you want to protect your house from thieves. Dogs are always alert, so they will bark like crazy if a stranger tries to approach your house. The noise from the dog will alert other people to a potential robbery.
Also, the dog can even help protect your neighbors since they will also make noise if the people they do not recognize, try to approach the other house.
