Home Security over Christmas

With Christmas comes an influx of valuables in the house, and with this comes an increase in interest to thieves. Here are some tips to ensure Home Safety over Christmas.

  • Secure Festive Lighting - Do not feed extensions leads through partially open windows. This leaves your house vulnerable to thieves. Opt for solar/battery operated lighting. Another option is to install outdoor electrical outlets.
  • Deter Criminals - Deterring criminals is a great step in home safety over Christmas, motion sensor lights are a great way to do this.
  • Give your Security Equipment a once over, make sure your intruder alarm, lock etc are working correctly.
  • Be Social Media Smart - Do not advertise via social media that you are away this Christmas or tell people what Santa has gotten you. This is hugely tempting for burglars.
  • Going away this Christmas? Ask a neighbour to turn on your lights once it gets dark, park in your driveway when they can and take in post.
  • Monitored Alarm System - a great added layer of security, very easy and cost effective to set up. Something you should really consider all year round not just at Christmas.
  • Keep your curtains/drapes/windows closed at night, keeping valuables out of sight.
  • Don't be tempted to store presents in garden shed or boot of car. Keep them safe inside the house.
