One of the easiest crimes to prevent — burglary — is also one of the most common. If it happens at your home, you lose more than a few possessions. A break-in, even when you’re not there, has a major impact on you and your family’s sense of safety and well-being.
But burglaries don’t have to happen. There are a lot of things you can do to boost home security and make your home burglary-resistant. Here are a few tips you can use to help you keep your family safe and your home and its contents intact.
Start with the front door
Because that is what burglars do. If your front door looks tatty, or if it only has one cylinder lock (e.g. Yale), instead of a cylinder lock plus deadlock (mortise), it will catch a thief’s eye.
Don’t skimp on the alarm
Burglars bypass the cheap systems and spot dummy alarms a mile off. For maximum security, alarms fitted with a speech dialler will alert you on your mobile upon an activation. Security Dynamics is fast becoming a well known brand in your area so a potential burglar will move on to the next property or even further a field as the noise would alert your next door neighbour.
Defend your back garden
Make sure your side gate does not have a convenient handle for the thief to step onto and over. Put some trellis on top too. Burglars hate it because it snaps, anything in your side passage that would cause a noise is also a great idea!
Keep things hidden
To the passing burglar, your sitting room is like a shop window. Use curtains and blinds, so it is difficult to see in. At the same time, make sure your window locks are visible.
Cage your letterbox on the inside
It is standard practice for burglars to put a long stick through your letterbox and “fish” your keys off the hall table. Not only will they be able to break into your home, but they will be able to steal your car, then take away more of your possessions.
Lock up your tools
View your shed or garage as an extension of your house. Put at least a couple of locks on the outside, plus wire on the window, so thieves can’t use your garden spade or fork to pull a door open.
