Burglars are known to be opportunistic, looking for easy ways to access properties, avoiding those that will take more time to enter or require noise or visibility that could attract attention. If your home or business looks unoccupied or is not locked securely, the chances of being targeted are a lot higher.
Sliding patio doors should always have the sliding section on the inner side and should have anti-lift blocks. If your existing patio doors don't have these features, you can install additional security bolts to prevent forced entry.
Many gardens are easy to access. Fitting locked gates which are at least 2 meters high will ward off intruders.
Garden sheds are often left unlocked, and this can make them tempting to criminals. Make sure you have a padlock fitted on your garden shed door, and keep it locked when not used.
Intruders don't like to be noticed and keeping your property well lit can make them feel vulnerable to observers and so will look for easier pickings elsewhere.
We have all come across homes with flyers and post hanging out of the letter box, milk bottles on the porch uncollected. These, along with snow that hasn't been shovelled or uncut lawns, are tell-tale signs that no one is around and that a burglary might be relatively low risk. If you are going away, either enquire at the post office for them to collect it until your return or, arrange with a neighbour to collect it for you. This can go a long way to keeping your property safe.
Our technicians are professionals in all areas of home security, and we can provide you with on-site assistance at any time of day. We are able to carry out security assessments and any required upgrades to existing locks and doors.
