Good home security is largely governed by your attitude
You can take action to ensure your home is difficult to break into by fitting locks (and also alarms and security lighting if appropriate) and you can discourage the casual thief. Cause the thief delay and more often than not he will go away. It is a fact that most burglars are not highly skilled professionals. They are amateurs looking for easy opportunities; an empty poorly secured home, an unlocked window, a door without a proper security lock.
A positive attitude towards home security means taking action to defend your home by fitting quality locks and ensuring members of your household use them.
Burglars don't like locked windows - remember, nearly 66% of burglaries are through windows. It makes sense to fit window locks, there are window locks for most types of windows, fit them to all accessible windows - Breaking glass makes noise and attracts attention. If the windows are deadlocked, the burglar will almost certainly be unable to open them even after breaking the glass and will have to climb past jagged pieces of broken glass to get in. To spread the cost, fit locks to the most vulnerable windows first and then progressively fit locks to all other accessible windows, remember, louver windows are easy for burglars, make sure you glue (use an epoxy resin) all the glass slats in or consider security bars.
Burglars don't like double deadlocked doors, that is doors fitted with security locks that can be locked on the inside and outside of the door. This prevents the burglar breaking a glass pane and reaching inside to open the door (as can be done with most existing locks fitted as standard). It also prevents the door being opened from the inside to allow the removal of your larger household possessions- A five lever mortice lock or a double cylinder deadbolt provides excellent security for standard doors. For thinner doors (below 38mm approximately), fit a surface mounted deadlatch with a cylinder that can be deadlocked.
