Adding lighting to walkways and entrances, and installing motion detector lighting increases safety and can help deter criminals. Adding a peephole to the front door allows you to see people without opening the door or looking out a window. Add deadbolt locks to your doors. Spring action locks are easily broken by criminals. Window bars or window locks that open easily from inside should be installed. Also, you may want to add a locking bar to your patio door to provide more security than a simple lock.
