By AAI Security

While we all make considerations towards home security to some extent, more often than not this takes the form of house alarms, securely locked windows and doors, and general vigilance against intruders. However, there are some areas of the home that often get overlooked when it comes to security, and these can be the most vulnerable to break-ins.
