This is how easy it is to break into a home with a typical wooden front door entrance.

  • My recommendations is for your first line of defense to let anyone who comes to your doorstep know they are being watched and recorded with security cameras.
  • 2nd you can reinforce your door with better hinges and longer screws with a metal strike plate.
  • And finally you can install a security system and have a door contact installed on each entry door that activates a siren and alerts the authorities to a break in.
