Even though home security issues usually happen when they are not expected to happen at all, there is a high probability that the following tips might spare you possible problems in the future:
Fix broken locks immediately - This might sound rather obvious to many people, but experience shows us that in many cases that involve broken locks that are not installed in a front door, people don't feel really rushed about getting the lock replaced. As a result, such incidents as keys that get stuck inside a lock and inability to open the door happen rather often.
Turn off the answering machine home - Many times, burglars call their potential victims before they invade their property, in order to make sure that there is nobody inside the house at the moment. A phrase like "I'm not at home, please leave a message" can boost their confidence when they consider a possible burglary. The small difference between an answering machine that approves your absence and lack of this sort of approval can make a dramatic difference!
If you have a neighbor that you trust, let him have a spare key - This is the best way to prevent a house lockout. Not only will it spare you the need to use a locksmith service, but it will also spare you all the stress related to the house lockout experience, and those who have pets locked or even a stove that might be still working inside the apartment surely need a solution that is as simple as taking a spare key from the neighbor.
