Tips to Keep Your Home Safe and Secure
At Assegai Security, we know how difficult it can be to make sure your home is always safe and secure, so we’ve put together a shortlist of key ways you can make your home feel safe and secure.
Doors & Windows
As simple as it sounds, keeping windows and doors closed when you aren’t in specific rooms can go a long way to increasing security as it reduces the easy entry points for your home, even when you’re at home. Also, make sure any valuables are kept out of visible reach near windows and doors.
Although CCTV and alarms may seem expensive, they are great ways to deter any burglaries and theft. Furthermore, with so many different options available, at different price points, there is an option for every budget. We’d suggest having a CCTV camera at all entry points.
Don’t Hide Spare Keys
It might seem convenient to hide a spare key under a mat or in a plant pot, however, as these are common hiding spots, they can be guessed by anyone, giving burglars easy access into your home. Alternatively, you might feel safer leaving a spare key with a trusted family or friend as they can look after it for you.
Check Your Fences
A broken fence can seem like a minor problem, however, it can be a simple way for a thief to enter the area surrounding your home and make it easier to access. Regularly inspecting and repairing any broken or damaged fence will reduce the chances of easy entry.
These are just a few easy ways to keep your home safe and secure all year round. At Assegai Security, we specialise in a complete range of commercial and domestic security services. For a free quote, contact our friendly team on 01908 596 519.
