Tip 11: Windows and locks

Having a window near the deadbolt lock in your home is always a risk, because a robber could quite easily break the window and then unlock the deadlock.  It seems like a silly mistake and one that can be easily avoided by using a double cylinder lock – one that necessitates a key.  And, of course, you shouldn’t leave the key sitting in the lock!  This is one way to make it easier for a criminal to get into your home.  Finally, close your windows at night and invest in an air conditioner for cooling your home; it might be a bit more expensive, but it is also a lot safer.
