Remain conscious of what can present a security weakness. This can be in any number of forms such as a stranger knocking on the door and posing to be in distress.
If you have a vehicle parked outside (particularly while you are away), the house can be entered if an intruder sees a garage remote on the visor and breaks the glass to get it.
