Thanks to Texas law,
Your homeowners policy may qualify for a home security credit:

To qualify for a 5% premium credit:

  1. The exterior doors of your home must be solid core doors which are 1-3/8" thick and be secured by deadbolts with a 1" throw.  Metal doors must be secured by deadbolt locks, also.
  2. Double doors must meet the above specifications and must have the inactive door secured by header and threshold bolts that penetrate metal strike plates.  If there is glass located within 40 inches of the header and threshold bolts, the bolts must be flush-mounted in the edge of the door. Double doors offer more opportunity to jimmy open, or force, than single doors. They can be secured with flush level bolts installed in the edge of the door, top and bottom.
  3. Dutch doors must have concealed flush-bolt locking devices to interlock upper and lower halves and must be secured by a deadbolt lock.
  4. Garage doors must be equipped with key-operated locking devices.  An electric garage door opener is a key-operated locking device.
  5. Sliding glass doors must be secured by secondary locking devices to prevent lifting and prying.
  6. Windows must be secured by auxiliary locking devices.
    Numerous locking devices are available for sliding windows
    and doors.  Those operated by keys are also effective.
