National Home Security Month is just around the corner!

Returning for its fourth consecutive year, National Home Security Month (NHSM) is back this October with even more top tips and advice for keeping your family, home and belongings safe this winter.

A different element of home security will be highlighted each week with the first week introducing NHSM and providing simple tips and advice.

The second week delves into total home security, exploring traditional security solutions for protecting the entry points to your home and any valuables within it. The third week looks at the growing smart security industry, and provides insight into how connected devices can keep you and your home secure at the touch of a button with added peace of mind thanks to remote access.

Week four raises awareness surrounding the darker nights to coincide with the clocks going back, encouraging you to make sure the exterior of your home and any outbuildings are fully protected. Then finally, week five provides seasonal advice to coincide with the increase in thefts and domestic damage around Halloween and Bonfire Night.
