7. Minimize Your Windows
Windows are great for letting natural light into your home, but that’s not all they can let in. As we saw in Ferguson and beyond, windows are often seen as an invitation to gain access, or simply to throw rocks at.
Window bars are unattractive and costly, yet effective. Blackout curtains are a less intrusive option that obscures your windows at night.
In the event that looting is taking place in your neighborhood, plywood is a very effective option.
