Tips To Having a Thief-Proof Home

The case of Joshua Komisarjevsky who confessed to breaking into the home of Dr. William Petit, and killing the doctor’s wife and two kids, have become another grim reminder of how important to secure our homes.

Having a non-lethal weapon such as a pepper spray or a Taser easily accessible from your bed is a start, and you also need to have a mobile phone with you all the time since burglars often cut the phone lines in a home they attack.

It is strongly recommended that you have an alarm system, and you would do better if you hire a locksmith that will assess your home security and provide you solutions to deter burglars.

Get armed: Having a non-lethal weapon in the form of a Taser or a Pepper spray in close proximity to your bed or front door can debilitate your attacker before they gain control. But realize these can be used against you. 

Have your mobile handy: Consider a second line or a cell phone in your bedroom. Burglars sometimes cut phone lines and often remove a telephone from the receiver when they enter a home. 

Get alarmed: An alarm system activated while you are sleeping will prevent a burglar from getting too far without you knowing it. And keep it on 24/7/365. With a home alarm system on, when someone knocks on the door, a conscious decision has to be made to turn off the alarm. Most people will keep it on.

Locks: Call a qualified locksmith to take a physical security survey to help you determine the most efficient way to lock up. Many products on the market are a false sense of security. A qualified locksmith should be a professional associated with well-known manufacturers. 


  • Komisarjevsky’s partner in crime, Steven Hayes admitted to have killed 17 women in his lifetime, adding horror to the home invasion case.
  • There are many do-it-yourself security products in the market that give false sense of security, and only a locksmith with experience and expertise on locks and security systems can provide your home with maximum security.

Your problems in your home, car, and office security will have a solution if you get the service of a locksmith. For more information and advice, contact Value Locksmith.
