burglar prevention christmas tips

Today, 23rd December, is statistically the day when most burglaries take place in the UK. This time of year sees an increase across the country and it is wise to keep your home as secure as possible.

The darker nights and busier weeks give burglars extra time and cover to target homes. This becomes especially important as we are out Christmas shopping and have more brand new, boxed valuables sitting in our homes – the perfect haul for burglars trying to sell on must have items in the run up to Christmas.

As well as making sure your doors and windows are locked, and that gifts and valuables are not left in view, remember to set your burglar alarm when you go out or go to bed.

A strong deterrent for opportunist burglars is an alarmed home and getting an alarm installed does not need to be a great ordeal. Our wireless intruder alarm can be installed quickly and with no mess! There is no need to run wires through your home and you still have the peace of mind that your property is protected.

Home CCTV systems are also becoming more popular as a cost effective way of protecting homes and outdoor areas such as driveways and gardens from intrusion and crime.

With advances in technology, the quality and features on our domestic CCTV prove to be great value. A single camera system will allow you to record everyone coming to your house and by connecting to broadband internet, these camera images can also be viewed by you from anywhere in the world.
On top of this, the night vision element of our CCTV means you can get high quality images in the dark without the need for outdoor lighting. The camera does not emit a bright light to the area either, keeping them more discreet.

So remember to keep your home safe this Christmas. For a free quotation on intruder alarms and CCTV, please get in touch by calling us on 01535 66 11 97, or simply fill out our online enquiry form.
