Buying locks for your home can be difficult if you don’t know what you’re looking for. Here are a few tips to keep in mind when purchasing a new lock:(1) You get what you pay for, the higher the price the more likely it will offer better security.(2) Know the brand; some common brands have a better reputation of both durability as well as security. (3) Know what type of lock you need, typically you find two types of locks on homes. A door knob and/or a deadbolt, knowing what you have and want is a major key in buying the right lock for you.

Statistics show that more than 34% of Burglars use the front door to get access inside. Also be sure to lock and secure all windows, over 23% of Burglars enter threw first floor windows.
Also, avoid posting on social media sites that your house is/or will be empty. This generation does everything online. So the first thing they look for is anything suggesting “Leaving” or “Going Out”. So be safe when updating a status or posting online (Facebook, Instagram, etc.). Sometimes it's safer to "late post" rather than giving "real-time" info.

Be cautious of purchasing automotive transponder keys and remotes online. Make sure that the company or seller can verify the item you are purchasing is compatible with your vehicle by year, make and model. If you have an existing remote and you are looking to buy a 2nd one, you should check the "FCC #" on the back to confirm that it matches to remote you are buying.

Try to get into the routine of placing your keys in the same place as soon as you walk through the door but keep them safe at night and out of view of potential intruders.
We recommend moving them to your night stand for safekeeping while you sleep. This way, you definitely know where they are when you wake up first thing in the morning and you won’t have to begin the day with a “where did I leave my keys?"
