Deadbolts can be an incredibly effective deterrent. They’re difficult to overcome except by blunt force, and they’re relatively easy to install. Every entry door on your property should have a deadbolt in addition to a regular lock, and you should make sure that all family members actually lock the deadbolts when leaving the house unoccupied. (For safety’s sake, it’s a wise idea to lock deadbolts behind you when you are inside your home as well.)
