Top Home Security Methods Whilst You’re on Holiday
Home security is unavoidable no matter where you live. Protecting your property from unscrupulous burglars is something every homeowner must take into consideration year in year out. There isn’t one solution, one size does not fit all when it comes to home security. This is especially true when you go away on holiday. Burglars will target empty homes and research properties where the occupants might be on holiday.
So, with that being said, what do British homeowners spend their money on when it comes to home security solutions whilst they are on holiday.
Top Security Buys
Recent research has suggested that holidaying homeowners combine a mixture of traditional security solutions as well as hi tech smart solutions when securing their property. Home security alarm systems are one of the top security solutions Britons purchase to protect their home whilst on holiday. This is closely followed by a dedicated CCTV system to capture any suspicious or criminal footage.
Traditional security solutions are high up on the list also. People understand the need for tried and tested home security methods such as strong window and door locks. 30% of all burglaries start with an insecure or faulty window. It is important to have as much security hardware as possible installed on your home when you are away on holiday.
A new trend people are gravitating towards is smart technology. This allows you to monitor your home from anywhere in the world and gives you a real time evaluation of what is happening in and around your home. Although not as ‘smart’ as the new crop of current security measures we’d highly recommend installing a 24 hour electrical segment timer that will control your lights and other electrical equipment whilst you’re not there. This will give the impression that someone is home and is a relatively inexpensive security solution if you want peace of mind when you are on holiday.
