Top 10 Home Security Advice Tips

Bad habits can make it easy for an opportunistic thief to all-of-a-sudden be at liberty in your home. Here is our list of top tips for maximizing home security.

1. Set your alarm every time you leave your home and regularly change its code

2. Don’t leave keys under the doormat, under a flower pot or under anything that seems a little too obvious. Burglars are very aware of all the best hiding places and could easily be the one tiny mistake that allows someone to be fully exposed to your possessions and premises.

3. Installing light timers or security timer switches can create the appearance of someone being home even when no one is there, which is an effective deterrent for any calculating and conniving criminal walking by. Consider installing a few around the house in rooms that can be seen at street level.

4. Review the exterior of your property. Check for any broken windows and make sure easy access points, such as garages, conservatories and sheds, are clearly secured as well as locking away tools and securing all bikes together. Covering garage and shed equipment with old sheets and blankets can be an easy deterrent if someone were to peek in.

5. Ask your local licensed locksmith to review your door and window security to make sure all your window and door locks are up-to-date, fitted properly, in good condition and meet insurance requirements

6. Protect your French doors and UPVC doors by installing top and bottom bolts on French doors and adding sash jammers to UPVC doors

7. Crime statistics are showing an increase in the number of home break-ins with the sole purpose of stealing car keys. so avoid making it easy for them and store them out of view.

8. Installing a home safe can be an easy solution to protect your most valuable and personal possessions. Ask your local licensed locksmith any time!

9. A well-lit home with front and back door sensor lighting can make an effective and obvious deterrent for anyone looking to sneak in and out unnoticed.

10. Consider your keys and the last time they were replaced, whether previous owners or tenants may still have access to your home and whether anyone may have made copies of your keys without your knowledge. If you are concerned ask a professional locksmith to change your locks and fit a patented system, whereby keys can only be copied with proof of ownership
