Home Security Checklist Mobile App

Is your home a magnet for burglars, thieves and vandals? This home security checklist will keep their hands off your valuable items and away from your property.

This Home Security Checklist app covers parts of your house you may need to think about when determining how secure your house is. For example, you may need to think about locks, light timers, doors and windows, sliding doors, garage entry, shrubs and bushes, motion detectors as well as valuable items you may have stored outside (such as lawn mowers) that can be stolen easily.

This Home Security Checklist app will help you come up with ways to improve your home security and keep safe the valuables in your house.
