It’s a Christmas like no other but let’s reassure you and keep your loved ones safe and secure this year. Here’s our Top 5 Tips to protect your home and maintain your peace of mind this festive season.
Lock all Doors and accessible Windows
Most burglars are opportunist and 20% come into homes through an unlocked door or window. Secure your home by locking all entry and exit points, including your garage door where applicable.
Turn on your house alarm
Use your security system – even if the worst happens and a burglar enters your home, the alarm bell will limit their time and a monitored alarm will automatically alert the authorities. Ensure turning on your home alarm becomes a reflex action for everyone in your family.
Light up your Property
Lights inside and outside your home can prevent would-be intruders, as highlighted by former burglars who admit that lighting deterred them from breaking and entering. A motion activated light outside and internal lamps on timers will act as a deterrent. Ideally, by using your Monitored Smart Home Alarm with Smart Lighting Control, you can pre-program when your lights come on and also turn your lights on/off with your remote device.
Resist Social Media
We all love to share events in our lives with friends and family, especially as we emerge from Level 5 Restrictions, however social media channels are targeted by burglars to find new opportunities. Keep your absence from home and gifting images on the down low this Christmas, reduce your risk of having precious items stolen from your home and more importantly losing your peace of mind.
Inform your Neighbours
Whether you are living in your community for a while or new home owner, neighbours play an important and vital role in our lives. Make sure to let someone nearby know if you’re going to be away, even for a short time, so they can keep an eye on your property, take in post and door stop deliveries. Join your Neighbourhood Watch or consider forming a group if you live in a new housing estate.
