Watch what you say

When you are planning to go away for any period of time, you should choose who should know about your trip. It's alright to share it with a friend, but be wary of strangers listening in to your conversation. Hairstylists, carpet installers and bank workers, according to Shaw, are just some of his informants during his day.

Protect all the entrances of your home Whether it's the front or back door, you should always watch

out for any possible way a burglar may use. When everyone is crowding the front door for possible attack, your burglar may be quietly slipping through the French door at the back.

Also, don't forget to add signs on your flower bed and the like that warn people that you have home security system installed or stick a decal on some of your windows.

Video surveillance is your friend Burglars are arrogant and they don't think that they would be

caught so those masks that we usually see on TV are rarely used. They may be stealthy, but they do not have the time to disable video surveillance. So, make sure that you have one of those around.

Don't keep valuables in the master bedroom

Burglars want to be in and out of your house as soon as they can. So the only place they would spend much of their time is in the bedroom where jewelry and important gadgets are usually kept. Make sure that you keep your things in the busiest part of the house and devise your own creative hiding places.
