Week 4: Dark Nights

With the clocks going back this week and the darker nights approaching, week four is providing tips and advice on getting your home secure in time for winter:

– You won’t be spending much time in the garden over the colder months, so don’t leave ladders, tools and garden furniture lying around which can be used by thieves to help break into your home. Lock these items away in your shed, secured with a heavy-duty, weatherproof padlock. For extra peace of mind secure individual items with anchor locks and cables.

– Security lighting not only increases visibility, but also acts as a great deterrent for those thieves who are shy in the spotlight.

– For 24 hour protection, ensure your CCTV system has infrared LED night vision, enabling you to keep an eye on your property around the clock.

– Protect your boundaries by securing any gates or fencing, preventing them from breaking in high winds and becoming vulnerable to burglars.
