There are a number of ways to improve the security of your home – whether you have just moved in, are selling and want to attract potential buyers or just want that extra peace of mind and protect yourself against break-ins.

Replacing the locks
For extra long-term security it’s always good practice to change your locks every few years – you may have forgotten who has keys to your property and especially of keys have been lost over time. To be doubly safe make sure that all windows, gates and garage doors have locks fitted too.

Alarm systems
There are many systems on the market from the basic door entry systems to sensor controlled units with home zones allowing you the freedom to move around in the evening – for bathroom visits of for household pets.
For extra security a fully wired system monitored by a security company is ideal when out at work all day or away on holiday.

CCTV systems
The advancement in webcams and mobile phone monitoring means that CCTV systems are now much easier and cheaper to install. Smaller cameras are easier to hide and disguise and can start recording when movement is detected, sending a warning to your smart phone.

Motion sensor outdoor lighting
Anyone around you front or back doors will set off the sensor and switch the lighting on providing a deterrent for would be burglers who prefer to operate in the dark.

Indoor safe
Ideal for your more valuable personal items, indoor safes come in all shapes and sizes and can be hidden almost anywhere in the house. Key or code operated they can prove to be a worthy investment should thieves gain entry to your home.
