VALUABLES: Keep them out of sight
LOCKS: Proper locks on all doors and windows
LIGHTING: Exterior lighting, especially motion detectors
WINDOWS: Keep windows closed (for the most part)
SLIDING DOORS: Secondary devices such as sticks in your sliding glass doors
NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH: Be a good neighbor, people look out for you if you look out for them
SPARE KEYS: Don’t hide spare keys around your perimeter
SIGNS / DECALS (even if they’re fake)
HOME SITTER: Trusted house sitters for when you’re away

Welcome aboard! While this is great advice it would be better suited as a hub where you expand on each thing. Add in keywords snd pictures etc.
