My friends and I were having coffee together over the weekend and the topic of house security came up. I mentioned that whenever I went out, day or night, I never bothered to lock any of our doors and they were left open. As were our windows always left open. We obviously live in a really safe part of town.
Just wondering what you guys do.....

Now that I am living alone and pregnant, I lock the doors and windows most of the time.

When my ex and I were living together though, I never much paid attention to whether everything was locked down. Times change.

I'm in Perth, Western Australia, but I still won't leave my doors unlocked.
I lived in Auckland in 98/99 and locked my doors back then as well.

I forgot to mention I live in Auckland, New Zealand...which is probably a much, much safer country than the USA!

When I lived on a farm in the middle of nowhere, yes I did but no way would I leave the house wide open in the city.
We have never had a problem here but I believe prevention is better than cure. Why leave an open invitation for people to steal what they want?
