There are so many home invasions and burglaries nowadays, even while people are at home.

Do you still leave a bedroom, or any other window open at night?

Although I have the burglar alarm on at night (round the perimieter and on windows), and have two dogs in my room, I would not leave the window open.

I always have a fear that someone is looking in the window if I do that as I dont pull down the blinds when I open the windows.

So, no I would rather turn on the air conditioner in my bedroom than leave a window open.

I'm afraid I cannot disclose this information, Finy lol.

why on earth not??no one knows where you livew!

LOL, you can never be sure, Finy. Ok, so we sometimes leave our bathroom window open.

I have gone through one guy years ago trying to get in, while I was home.That was so scary.
I'm also in a Very safe area (village), so not as bad a problem...for us.
I don't know that the incidence of burglaries really has gone up. It may well be that there is just more reporting of crime in the media.

In QLD in summer you pretty much need to have your windows open at night, which is why I like security screens.
No way....even though I have a security grate on the one side that opens...I still would not leave my window open at night.

I bless the wonderful region of this huge country I live in.I ALWAYS have a window open!! I know that I shall get a warn ing from one or mofre of you,but this is how I love to live ....Freely!!!
No way. I leave nothing open intentionally.
I live on the 9th floor so unless Spider-Man exists I don't think anyone could get in our windows!

I never open the windows. Always open the back door because it has a security door as well which is always locked. Too scarey to open them as I've been broken into twice at other locations and the feeling that someone has gone thru your private stuff is not conducive to a good night's sleep. Also all the neighbours leave their dogs outside and the barking is annoying.
All windows have complete aluminium safety grilles on them, open & closed portions, so the windows can be left open always, for air circulation.
Small windows open, security screened, dogs waiting below to welcome nocturnal (or diurnal) visitors. I only shut the house up to put the aircon on.

(also, if I go out into the backyard, I key lock the front security door and remove the key)

No I dont but I just had a bad dream last night where I awoke from sleep and found the window and blinds open by someone I didn't know.

In real life, my bedroom's upstairs and can't be seen from the street and has a blind in front of it so on warmer nights I do sometimes leave it open.
Always, but I have floor to ceiling windows with shutters to allow air in through the small gaps between each slat so I'm fine.
I do leave the windows open, but I put my shutters down.
Yes however all our Windows have security grills.
Yes, I just moved to a community with very low crime, out of the city three months ago.
I have the bedroom windows open during the day or when we go away, to let in the fresh air. I close them in the evening, incase I hear any traffic noise during the night. The bathroom, kitchen & laundry windows usually stay open during the night. Our house is high up, on the site of an old sand stone quarry, & 1 doesn't notice really the stairs from the roadway.

No. I close/lock windows and doors.
I wouldn't be able to sleep otherwise.
