1. Lock the door
You may live in a safe neighbourhood, but as soon as you come in the house, be sure to lock the door. You can keep anyone you don’t know from walking in with the door locked.
2. Get an alarm system
Install an alarm or security system. A system you can monitor from your phone or your work computer, even when you aren’t at home.
To help you decide which system is right for you. Here is CCTV system we recommend
3. Don’t leave a spare key outside
Give a spare key to a trusted friend or family member instead of hiding it under a mat or on top of a door frame. The mat and near-by places are the first spots an intruder will look for a spare key.
4. Have an emergency plan
Have a fire emergency plan and know the safest way to get out in case of an emergency. You’ll need to react quickly if there’s a fire, so having a plan will help take away the guesswork.
5. Have a check-in plan
When you live alone, it’s important to let someone you trust know your primary schedule and plan. If you are going out of town, make sure a family member or a neighbour knows your plan. You may even want to let someone trusted nearby know when you are typically expected home from work.
The more you know, the more confident you’ll be. The key to feeling safe when you’re home alone is to feel in control.
