Check All Points of Entry & Security Equipment

Check Your Windows and Doors – Make sure to check all windows and doors to ensure all locks are working. Think about whether you need any additional security measures such as safety restrictors for certain areas of the home.

Are Home Security Systems Working – Whether alarms to signal unlawful entry or door intercom systems to see and hear who is entering your home, verifying all home systems are working and up to date is an important part of your checklist.

Lock-up Outdoor Areas – If you have a garage, standalone structure, or gates to the side or exterior of your home, ensure that all padlocks are in working order. If necessary, upgrade your home by investing in additional locks if you don’t already have them.
