There are many ways to help secure your home as well as locks on your doors and windows.
- Chippings, gravel or pebbles on driveways alert you when someone is approaching your house. Burglars know this, therefore it acts as a deterrent.
- Install an alarm system or at least fit an external dummy alarm box in a prominent position on the outside of the house, as long as the dummy looks real it will act as a deterrent.
- Where possible look to see who is at your door before opening it, fitting a door viewer and a door chain gives you the added safety.
- Fit blinds to windows. Venetian blinds or vertical blinds can act as a significant deterrent as they are a noisy obstacle for burglars attempting to gain entry.
These are just a few things you can do to keep your home as safe as possible!
