If you have been keeping up with the news, you will be aware of the rise in home burglaries in Cardiff since lockdown. This has led to many homeowners looking at ways to further protect their homes, their belongings and most importantly; their families.
Below, we explore the 5 steps for better security at home.
Lock all windows and doors at night
There are many inexpensive ways to increase your home security. Whether you live in a good neighbourhood or not, taking precautions is always advised. This is why simple actions such as locking windows and doors at night and ensuring all expensive belonging are out of sight is recommended.
Keep keys safe
The main objective of heightening security is to ensure nobody can gain entry into your property. For this reason, ensuring you are keeping your keys to your property safe is essential.
According to a recent survey, over 25% of burglars enter a targeted home with a key. This is why the age-old process of leaving spare keys under plant pots and mats needs to stop!
Install a home burglar alarm
Home burglar alarms are not only great for alerting homeowners when a trespasser has entered their home but they are also a great deterrent. 80% of burglars will refrain from targeting a home that has a visible burglar alarm/siren on the exterior.
Invest in home CCTV
If you are looking to really ramp up your home security then one of the best things you can do is invest in a home CCTV system. Here at Twenty4 Fire and Security, we specialise in the installation of smart 4k CCTV systems, giving our customers the latest CCTV technology in order to keep their homes safe and provide peace of mind.
Keep your security devices maintained
Although investing in alarms and cameras is great, ensuring they are working fully and effectively is important. This is because if left idle such devices can begin to experience faults. And, the last thing you need is to experience a security issue and your equipment not pick it up.
