Now that school is back in session are you getting a bit envious? Do you miss the first day of school feeling or the smell of a brand new textbook? Well, Curley’s Key Shop has a little surprise for those missing out on the back to school feeling. In fact, we’ve put together a home security pop quiz for you! Take the quiz below to see how much you know about keeping your home safe.
Q: Should you always keep your doors and windows locked?
A: This one is an easy question to start you off. YES, you should always keep your doors and windows locked, but especially when you leave home or at night. This is the easiest way for burglars to get in and without easy access, they may move on to the next house.
Q: Do high-security locks really make a difference?
A: Yes, high-security locks absolutely make a difference. These locks cannot be picked, they must be drilled. As you might imagine, drilling a lock can be very loud and isn’t widely used, especially in quiet residential neighborhoods.
Q: How can you keep an eye on what’s going on inside and outside your home?
A: By installing a CCTV system or front door camera doorbell, you can keep an eye on what’s going on inside and outside of your home. With advances in technology, you can even check the videos from your smartphone and save them if necessary. Plus, the sight alone of these devices is often enough to deter a criminal from breaking into your home.
Q: Where is a good place to store valuables?
A: Contrary to popular belief, the best place to store valuables is not under your mattress or in your underwear drawer. In fact, the best place to store valuables is in a safe! At Curley’s Key Shop, we sell and install safes so you can always rest assured that your valuables are safe and secure.
