Whether you have a one-bedroom apartment in Cardiff’s city centre or a large family home in the Vale of Glamorgan, keeping your home, family and belongings safe will understandably be on your radar. This is why more than 60% of homeowners decide to invest in security systems of some sort. Whether that be multi-camera CCTV systems or a simple burglar alarm, the more precautions taken to protect the place you call home, the better.
Burglar alarms are not only a way to ensure you are aware if an intruder has approached or entered your property, but also an effective deterrent. Homes with visible burglar alarm sirens are 80% less likely to be targeted by burglars due to the increased threat of being caught in the act.
CCTV is by far the most powerful type of security system. Home CCTV systems allow homeowners to access around the clock footage of their entrances, driveways and outdoor spaces. With smart CCTV and 4K cameras now available, crisp footage can be accessed in real-time remotely, giving homeowners complete reassurance that their home is protected.
While traditionally used in apartment blocks, home intercoms are becoming incredibly popular for all sorts of property types. Whether you wish to install an intercom by your front door or at the end of your drive, an intercom system will allow you to vet who is on your premises at all times.
Do I need to maintain home security equipment?
The short answer is yes. The more often you have your devices checked and audited, the better they will perform and the safer you will feel. Our advice would be to have your CCTV cameras, alarms and intercoms audited at least every 6 months. This will not only give you and your family peace of mind but will ensure you are fully protected against threats to your safety.
