Looking at Your Home Through the Eyes of a Burglar

burglarsWhen you look at your home you see it as a safe haven for you, your family and your precious belongings. It is a place where you live and share many special times with your loved ones. No matter what goes wrong throughout the day, knowing you can go home to a safe and secure environment makes the bad days a whole lot better. This is how you see your home, now let’s take a look at how a thief might see it.

You are the last one out in the morning and you confidently shut and lock the front door as you start your day. As you briefly back out of the garage and take a quick look at your home you smile with pride and are thankful for such a nice place to live.

Now the crook across the street is leisurely viewing your home with an entirely different perception. He sees that lovely high fence around your property as a great protective measure for him while he seeks out the vulnerable entries to your home. Then those tall bushes by the back windows are ideal for extra cover while he determines how to get past the old window locks. A quick look at your front door will soon advise him that the locks are old and generic. An easy task for this individual to get past these. Or perhaps the single latch on the patio doors would be an even easier entry.

Also, while you were busy taking that last look at your home, you forgot to close the garage door, so now the thief has some extra resources to utilize like a ladder perhaps to gain entry through an upstairs window, or a small tool to break some glass to allow for entry.

Of course it is difficult to look at your home through a burglar’s perspective because this is not your nature. However, it does allow you to see your vulnerable areas. You could say it is an eye opener, and by doing so it could save you a lot of grief and hardship in the future.

By taking the knowledge that you gain by doing this you can now seek out the solutions. This should begin by choosing a quality Toronto locksmith company that specializes in security. Your home security is unique to your home and you need individualized solutions and not generic ones.
