Keeping Your Home Safe

The top priority of any homeowner, is safety and security. No matter where you live there is often a risk of being the target of an unwelcome person gaining access to your home. We would like to use this week's blog to discuss ways of securing home, other than the usual burglar alarm. Our property manager has knowledge on how to keep your home that bit more secure with these handy suggestions...

Sash Window Bolt Locks

A basic way of adding extra security to your home is by fastening on retrofitting sash window bolt locks. The key locks prevent the two sashes from sliding past each other. Whereas the average sash window twist or pivot lock can easily be opened or knocked off from the outside. This is a standard requirement for all building insurance small print.

Check the Crime Prevention Website for more details.

 

Light Timers

Many burglaries occur when there's no-one at home, the lights are off and without any sign of life inside. Often, having the lights on will deter burglars by making them think you are home. With a light timer, you can remotely turn various lights on at your home, timed at certain hours in the day and evening.

Outdoor Dummy Cameras

Cameras are a good deterrent to make people think that a real surveillance camera is in operation. They can also be used alongside real surveillance cameras so that more areas appear to be covered.
