It’s week 4 of National Home Security Month and it’s all about how to protect your home as the nights are getting darker! Research shows that when the clocks go back burglaries spike up to 25% ! With this in mind it’s the perfect time to think about how secure your home is.
- Don’t leave tools and equipment outside, it is always best to lock these items away with a heavy-duty padlock in a garden shed or outbuilding.
- Invest in security lighting around your home, not only will this increase visibility but can also act to deter burglars.
- For 24 hour protection, ensure your CCTV system has infrared LED night vision, enabling you to keep an eye on your property around the clock.
- Secure any gates or fencing, preventing them breaking in high winds and becoming vulnerable to burglars.
