* Neighborhood Watch Program. Taking photos of suspicious vehicles, and not deleting them for five months. 
* Keeping windows and doors firmly locked at all times, night and day.
* Spare key not easy to find or anywhere near doors or reaching access.

* Signs on property entrances: No Trespassing. Do Not Enter. Keep Out. Security Video. No Solicitations. Guard Dog on Premises. 
* Simple or extensive home security system with alarm.

* Extra expensive electronics not within view of windows.

* Community mailbox with lock, rather than a driveway mailbox.
* Not writing your home address on your key-chain.
