Top Tips for Home Security

Worried about the safety of your home? Or simply want to ensure you’re doing everything right? Read on to find out our top tips for ensuring your home or property is as safe as can be.


Install British Standard (BS3621) Locks

Firstly, one of the best and most reliable ways to ensure home security is by installing British Standard locks. These are designed to be as theft-proof as possible, and often you wont even be able to get home insurance without them. These locks are usually found on the front and back doors of properties, as – naturally – these are the most important doors to keep secure.


Get an Alarm System Fitted

It may seem like an obvious point, but making sure you have a working burglar alarm fitted to your property is an important part of home security. More often than not, it’ll do it’s job just by being there and acting as a deterrent. As such, thieves are far less likely to attempt a break-in if there’s a clear and visible alarm system active.


Out of Sight, Out of Mind

Keeping your valuables hidden and out of sight is another important tactic for making sure your home is safe from thieves. Make sure that your valuables are safely locked away, or at the very least, not visible from the outside of your home.
