    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
    One extra way to protect your home, call it #11, is to make sure your bushes, shrubs, trees, etc. are not out of control. It gives potential intruders a place to hide and scope out the situation without being noticed.

    I came across a study a few years ago that surveyed people in state prisons who were convicted of grand theft. Among other questions, they were asked which homes they passed by. Homes with dogs inside was the number one answer.
