How to Secure Your Home
Posted on 6th June 2017 by Wilson Alarm Systems Blog
With the warmer weather approaching, we all like to crack open our windows and doors to let in a fresh breeze. However, home security should remain a priority throughout the year. At Wilson Alarms Systems Ltd, we have put together a list of tips based on how to secure your home as the warmer weather approaches.
Add Security Systems
There are a wide variety of security systems on the market, but tailoring your systems to suit your needs is greatly important. 24-hour monitoring, motion sensors and access control systems can all work as great deterrents.
You many never have to look at the footage from your monitoring systems, but just knowing that you can see who is in or around your property at any given time can give you great peace of mind.
Get to know Your Neighbours
If you don’t already know the neighbours you have either side, the warmer months provide a great opportunity to get to know them. Your neighbours are likely to know your local area just as well as you do, if not better, and can keep an eye on your home when you are away. What’s more, if something suspicious is happening in your local area, having the support of your neighbours when it comes to keeping an eye out for unusual activity can prove exceedingly helpful.
Remember Your Locks
There’s something about the summer sun that can make us all a little more relaxed. However, keeping your windows and doors locked during the summertime is just as important as in the winter. Burglaries can happen during the day or night, and if you make your house an easy target by leaving doors open to let a fresh breeze in, whilst you are elsewhere, it is unlikely that passersby will assume anything is wrong.
To keep your home cool, without leaving doors and windows open, considering closing your curtains or blinds to block out the sunlight.
