Is your home really safe? The 4 tips you must know for a secure home-
Being a locksmith in San Antonio I know there are many things one can do to increase the security of their home, business or car. It’s nice to remember that not every burglar in the world is at Ocean’s Eleven caliber, however any burglar is a threat.
Hiring a locksmith to install new locks or purchasing an alarm system are two ways one could upgrade their security. Aside from
purchasing new equipment one can increase their security without any purchases, exciting huh? Most locksmiths will tell you
security is also in the attitude, not only the fancy products you have. You have to have that motivation to get up and actually do
the work. Here are some easy home tips you can remember to help minimize the chance you become victim to an intruder.
During the night it is more difficult to spot people due to the darkness. Although many burglaries happen in broad daylight, I
have seen first-hand that many “go to work” during the dead of night. A smart locksmith tip is to illuminate the areas around your home. With a lit up property anyone walking on your property can easily be seen by you and your neighbors. This decreases the chance of getting robbed while increasing the chance of your intruder being seen before the damage is done.
Keep tools inside
Often time’s household members will leave tools- screwdrivers, hammers, wrenches, etc. – outside their home, most often by
the garage. Professional locksmiths say that by doing this, you are giving your intruder some useful tools to use to break in. By
remembering to bring in any tools around your property you can vastly limit the success of your intruder.
This is probably the most occurring problem we hear about as locksmiths. We want to have easy access to our hidden home
key; therefore we keep it very proximate to the front door. Whether it’s under the doormat, above the door frame or inside the flower pot, these burglars know where to look. Think of your hiding spot and then think again. This is basically giving the burglar
the open invite to rob you. Tell yourself you need to hide the key further away from your door, and in a way better hiding spot.
Lighting, hiding tools and HIDING the hidden key are three easy and quick steps you can take today to upgrade your home’s security.

For a big city like San Antonio security should always be on your mind when doing anything- and parking is no exception. When leaving your car unattended there are always risks to look out for. This is why parking safely in public is essential.
When parking your car there are several things to keep in mind so you can feel at ease. Typically you want to avoid attention from car thieves at all times. You want to detract anything that highlights your car.
Safe Parking- Illumination
Parking safely in public areas try and find a parking spot that is lit up. Park under a street lamp or next to a lit up building to increase your chances of thwarting a car thief.
The minute a thief sees your car is lit up like the empire state
building he’ll most likely move onto a car parked in darkness.
Safe Parking- Away from exits
When parking in garages or parking lots make an effort to part as far away from the exit/entrance as possible.
Normally a car thief will try to go for a car closest to the exit for the quickest escape. A car parked next to the exit is very attractive to a car thief.
For safe parking make sure to park as far away as you can from the exit. When a thief sees your car he’ll count it as too much work and too high of a risk, and most likely move on.
Safe Parking- Camouflage
Another good tip for parking safely in public is to try parking between a group of cars. A car on its own stands out to a car thief so by parking between a group of cars you can camouflage your vehicle.
A car parked alone will cause a car thief to put his direct attention towards it.
