Everything you need to know about National Home Security Month
What is your home security lacking?
October is National Home Security Month. You can follow this month long campaign with the hashtag #NHSM18 on twitter. The event was started in 2013 to raise awareness of home security and to help families reflect on their home security. Some people will feel reassured, whilst others will be looking to make the necessary improvements.
YOUR HOME IS YOUR CASTLE
Raise the drawbridge!
It’s not a new idea. Last year, National Home Security Monthhit the headlines with their work. Police forces, locksmiths and charities support the campaign as well as local companies like us. The focus for 2018 is to “Make your home your castle” although digging a moat and building battlements are not required. Instead, householders are being encouraged to rethink their home security. Castles were built to defend attacks. Security is put in place to defend from the modern day equivalent of this – burglary.
PEACE OF MIND FOR FAMILIES
At Keybury, we are always working to provide peace of mind for our customers. Our securities systems are protect homes across the North of England. As the saying goes; “An Englishman’s home is his castle”. We do have security systems on halls, churches and stately homes but we’ve yet to install a system into a castle. We’ll be blogging about ways to protect your home, family and belongings throughout National Home Security Month – and beyond.
WEEK BY WEEK
The latest technology for your home security
The first week of NHSM kicks off with a focus on alarm systems. If you’re on twitter, use the hashtag #NHSM18 to find tweets, tips and blogs with up to date info on all the latest technology such as APP control and wireless alarm systems. The second week explores security standards. We are proud to be NSI Gold approved for designing and installing Intruder alarms, Door access and CCTV.
DARKER NIGHTS, BETTER SECURITY
The next focus is on smart technology and how this has helped us to improve the security on offer in 2018. The end of October is statistically the worst time of year for break-ins. Perhaps with #NHSM that statistic will change this year? We’ll be here with tips to help reduce your risk around Halloween and bonfire night.
