Your home is only as safe as your most accessible entry point. To keep intruders out, make sure your doors are secure.

 

Doors with just locks on the handle can easily be broken into. Instead, make sure you have a deadbolt on your door.

 

When purchasing a deadbolt, make sure you get one that has key access on the outside and a thumb latch on the inside. You want to avoid deadbolts with key access on the inside because it could prevent your family from making a quick escape in case of emergency if you need to find a key to open the door.

Making sure your doors are properly secured will give you peace of mind at home.
