Don’t give burglars the chance to enter your home! Investing in a home security system is the best route for halting burglars, but other easy deterrents can be put to use around the house as well. Trimming trees and shrubs, consider set-locks, and automatic timed lights are all DIY solutions that are great supplements to any security system.
