Protecting your home from burglars is all about trying to make your home appear secure enough that burglars take a single look and realise that it would be easier for them to go somewhere else. Sometimes, this means you need to think like a burglar if you are going to prevent a break in.
It is advisable to upgrade your locks, secure your doors and windows and improve your lighting to protect your home and its contents.
Consider all the target areas and access points which may require serious security improvements. Alarms, motion sensors, locks and passwords are all available to improve your home security.
Don’t Take the Risk
Maybe on your way back from work you dropped your house key somewhere and had no way of retrieving it. If you live nearby, some burglars could see this as a potential opportunity by testing the key on nearby homes, which is why it’s always a good idea to change your locks to provide peace of mind.
There are a wide variety of locks to choose from for your upgrade, depending on what you feel safest with. Combination locks, coded door locks, digital and electronic locks, door and window locks, garage security locks and more are available.
No Second Chances
It has been known for some burglars to return to properties they have targeted in the past, once you have had time to replace the stolen valuables. Don’t fool them into thinking that your home is an easy target because they broke in once before. Ensure that any damage from the break in is repaired as soon as possible, with a follow up security upgrade.
Door realignment, hinge upgrades, window lock repairs, door and patio door repairs are all easily available to strengthen barriers around your home and eliminate easy access for unwanted visitors.
Changing Your Locks
Ultion Anti Snap Locks are approved by the Police, British Standards and Master Locksmiths Association and are the top recommended anti-snap lock. Deter burglars by saying “no” to your locks being broken into too easily, with locks that just won’t snap.
