It’s always a good idea to start the New Year off right, by reflecting on the past year’s opportunities and a look forward, towards prosperity and renewed optimism. Protecting the thing’s you love works in just about the same way. Insuring that your family, property and assets are safe and secure, protected from intrusion and crime. In 2016 it is estimated that a home burglary occurred every 15 seconds in this country. Millions and millions of homes burglarized, vandalized, robbed or intruded, a statistic we as homeowners need to come to grips with.

We have 8 simple security steps that can be taken to deter a home invasion and promote safe space for you and your family. We call these 8 security steps, 8 layers of security every homeowner needs to employ for maximum home protection.
8 Layers of Security Protection
Having Visible Window & Door Locks
Home owners need to think of their windows and doors as the first line of protection from intrusion. Make it difficult for any burglar to attempt to penetrate your security. Strong, well-made doors and sturdy locks are a burglars numbered 1 deterrent from gaining access to your home.
Keep your Doors & Windows Locked
Many homeowners simply fail to lock their doors and windows. A good rule of thumb is if you made the investment to purchase locks for all your doors and windows, use them. Locking up every time you go out is important, but keeping the doors locked when you’re home, especially at night is a must. No longer do we live in a society where we can afford to take the chance of a burglar gaining access to our homes through an unlocked door or window even when we are home. Dead bolted doors are hard to open without a key. Most people in Florida don’t open their windows often, so keeping them locked is another layer of protection against crime.
