Unfortunately we have no choice for certain things in life like going to work. Most people tend to me more housebound during the winter months,  and so, it is a perfect time to develop good habits that help you keep your house a safe and secure place to live in. This will also ensure that you’re more consistent in practicing home security measures, performing them automatically as if they’re second nature.

In fact, 66% of robbers surveyed said they entered residences through open windows or doors, as reported by The Australian. Based on this fact, it’s important that you develop the habit of actually closing your doors every time you enter or leave your home. Practice this constantly by closing doors to the bedroom, toilet, or storage area whenever you enter or exit the room. Do the same thing at the office, as well. Sooner or later, you’ll find yourself automatically doing this routine even without being conscious about it. With windows, consider installing screens or grilles so that you can leave your panes open and keep your interiors cool without worrying about intruders. Before leaving your house, make sure that all windows are closed.
