In short, this means going around your house and counting doors, windows and open rooms. Walking around your home (inside and outside) can help you determine what you may need and what areas of your home are most susceptible to break-ins. It’s not rocket science by any means. Put yourself in a burglars shoes and think about which areas of your home would be the easiest to break in to.
