How to improve your home’s security

  • Keep ladders and  garden tools locked up.
  • Use BS3621 deadlocks and security bolts on outside doors, and lock them up securely at night or when you are out of the house.
  • Fit a alarm. If you can afford to do so, fit Ring.com system too. Opportunistic thieves will pass your house by if they notice it has good security measures.
  • Don’t put keys under plant pots, under the mat burglars know these spots. If you must leave a key outside the house, give it to a trusted neighbour or friend.
  • Use & fake TVs timer to switch your lights on and off when your home is unoccupied. 
  • Wooden doors are far easier to break down than PVC doors, so fit lock to BS3621 and a LONDON BAR. To strengthen your security.
