How To Upgrade Your Home Security – Top Tips
Recent research highlighted that 25% of people admit to having no security at all, while another 14% admit to spending £50 or less on securing their home*. DIY home security has never been in easier and there are a huge range of simple cost effective products that you have can install yourself that can dramatically improve your home security. We are going to highlight some key areas to get you started.
Install an Alarm & CCTV System
Not surprisingly an alarm is the most commonly purchased form of home security and quite frankly you would be foolish not to have one with how easily accessible they are these days.
The Yale Easy-Fit range for both alarms and CCTV are both great bits of kit and could be installed by most competent DIYers. Both systems are feature rich and excellent value for money. With Yale you have a good support network through stockists such as ourselves and you always have peace of mind with Yale guarantees.
Secure Your Doors & Windows
The office for National Statistics latest crime survey for England and Wales reports 92% of all domestic burglary in a dwelling is committed through the front and back door, 52% and 40% respectively. There are many products on the market such as high security door locks to prevent lock snapping attacks and window jammers that can help prevent a burglar gaining access.
The last thing a burglar wants is to be seen so having good lighting is an integral part of security for any property. Outdoor lighting should consist of good quality lights ideally with motion detection to trigger them when movement is sensed. An unexpected beam of light is bound to give a burglar a fright and warn them off. You can also save yourself some time and money with a product that combines lighting and CCTV (as pictured).
There are quite a few different burglary deterrent products on the market. A personal favourite of ours is the fake tv. This is an ingenious product that has a built in computer which shines LEDs at varying intensity’s and colours just like a television does, giving the impression to a would be burglar that somebody is home. There are also many ‘anti climb’ products on the market to make it more difficult to gain access to your property via fences or walls. The two most popular anti-climb products are prikka strips and anti-climb paint. It should be noted when using these types of products appropriate warning signs must be displayed or the property owner could be at risk of legal action if any harm is caused by them. However usually just the sight of these products is enough to scare of any unwelcome intruders. .
