Vector-Smart-Object-copy Security Tips


As well as having a good security system in place there are a number of simple things you can do to make sure that your home and business premises are secure.

  • Fences, walls, and hedges should be high enough to deter a thief, but not so high as to allow them to work unseen.
  • All external doors should be solid and a minimum of 1 3/4″ think. Key locks and deadbolts should be of a high quality, as should the door frame (a solid door is of little security without a solid frame)
  • Don’t leave unattached ladders outside the building. They can be used to enter your home. Same goes for any tools – make sure everything is locked away, preferably with good quality locks.
  • When you are away, do not leave any clues that there is no-one there, i.e. leave a light on timer so that it comes on every evening, cancel deliveries, divert landline numbers to a mobile phone.
  • Don’t leave a spare key under a mat, in a flower bed, under a rock etc, burglars will find it because they know where to look. We also offer a Keyholding Service – click here to learn more.
