With dark evenings rolling in yet again, it is time to make sure you are prepared for those winter nights.  Pack up your gardens, lock away tools and gardening equipment and make sure garages, sheds and summer houses are properly secured.  Don’t forget, you can also add your garages and sheds to your home alarm system to give you that extra peace of mind.

This could be particularly important as car theft, specifically higher end cars, have been appearing more in the news lately across the Bradford area.  As well as keeping cars in garages where possible, it is also advised to keep car and other keys out of sight and easy reach from windows and doors.  A “2 in 1” burglary is when a thief breaks into your home, steals your car keys and then steals your car. More often than not they also steal other items while they are inside the home.

CCTV systems also continue to rise in popularity.  CCTV cameras are no longer limited to use by commercial businesses. As the technology is becoming more affordable, domestic CCTV is on the rise.  Home surveillance can be particularly beneficial as the evenings become darker, providing that the cameras are of high enough quality to provide you with clear images during the day and night.

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.
