Home Security – Bonfire Night 2015

Home security for your local communities in the UKhome security tips on Bonfire Night

Bonfire Night is a very tempting night for opportunist burglars. These dark evenings, with bangs from fireworks exploding in the distance, assist burglars breaking in to houses.

Home security tips for your premises:

Make sure your outbuildings, sheds, etc. are fitted with a strong padlock and/or alarm system. HG Security Company UK sell a strong combination padlock online.  Click here to have a look.

Do not leave ladders lying around – lock them away into your shed or garage.  Ladders make easy access for burglars to gain access to upper floors.  Many people leave an upstairs window open, so best advice is to close all windows for added home security.

A high percentage of burglars enter properties through a door.  Make sure all doors and windows are locked for best safety & security of your home.

Fit an alarm and/or CCTV system.  Many properties in the UK have alarms fitted, but choose not to use them!

If you don’t want to go to the expense of fitting a fully operational alarm, you could purchase a dummy alarm box.   They appear to be an active alarm from the ground as they have a flashing light.  They can be purchased from DIY stores throughout the UK.  Argos sell the miGuard Dummy/Replica Siren for £19.99.

Make your house look as if somebody is at home. Close the curtains, leave a few lights on. It’s also a good idea to leave a radio or television on.

Your home security alarm code should be regularly changed.

Never leave spare keys hidden outside your house, in a wellington boot, under the doormat, etc. Do not leave any keys inside your home visible from the outside. Experienced thieves know all the hiding places!

Ask a friend or neighbour to keep an eye on your home whilst you’re out.

Get security lighting fitted to the front and rear of your property.  HG Security & Property Protection Limited recommend the sensor type that are activated by movement.

REMEMBER!  REMEMBER!  Your household insurance may be invalid if your home is left unsecure
