Daylight Home Security

Portland locksmith home security
There are many communities around the Portland area that are located in good areas and unlikely to be victim for home burglaries. Because of that, many residents of these communities will not put an emphasis on locking the doors surrounding their homes. Although home invasion is unlikely in good community areas, there is always a need to stay vigilant when it comes to the security of your home.

Many people will not realize the possibilities of home burglaries that will not occur using forced entry methods. It is somewhat a scary fact, but many burglars will actually knock on the front door in the middle of the day. According to law enforcement around the country, at least a third of home invasion happened without any trace of forced entry. In order to take security measures to protect against burglaries it is essential to call a professional locksmith that specialize in residential properties.

It is an unfortunate fact that many home intruders was able to figure that breaking into homes during the day when its still light out is easy enough without getting busted. The way that it works starts with the burglar knocking on the door to verify if someone is home or not. In an event that someone is home, the burglar would usually makeup a reason about his intentions such as using your phone, request for directions, or even claiming to accidentally knock on the wrong house. Burglars who attempt to intrude a home during the day are normally none violence and are only looking for the opportunity to sack a home when there is no one around.

The problem with most traditional residential locks is the fact that they can easily be picked. Door knob locks for example has a low security mechanism that is much less secure than a deadbolt. These types of locks are often recommended by professional locksmith to be used only on the interior rooms in a home rather than on the front door or in addition to a deadbolt. The use of multiple locks on the front door of a home in general is a good idea as they can discourage home intruders from attempting to break into a home during the day.
