Happy New Year Locksmith Greenwich

burglary season in Greenwich has  already started. Some of the worst days in the year for domestic break-ins and burglaries are coming up in the next few days and weeks. Is your domestic security system  up-to-date with your insurance company.

According to Churchill Home Insurance, the number of burglary claims relating to theft on New Years’ Eve is typically 28% higher than the December average.

Other peak days for break-ins include December 19th and January  5th, which see 12% more claims than the monthly average

If you’re locked out, lost your keys, require a spare key cut, want to change your locks or need to upgrade your security etc. then you should call your local MLA Licensed Locksmith. You can find a local MLA locksmith on our website, we recommend you put their number into your mobile phone so you have easy access to it in case of emergency.

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.

tips to avoid been burgled over Christmas

I

  • Lock your doors and windows every time you leave the house, even when you’re just out in the garden, remembering to double-lock UPVC doors (lift handle and turn key)
  • Hide all keys, including car keys, out of sight and away from the letterbox (remember a device could be used to hook keys through the letterbox)
  • Install a visual burglar alarm (as part of a suite of prevention measures – a burglar alarm on its own will not prevent entry to your home)
  • Install good outside lighting
  • Get a trusted neighbour to keep an eye on your property
  • Leave radios or lights in your house on a timer to make the property appear occupied
  • Make sure the fences around your garden are in good condition
  • Secure bikes at home by locking them to an immoveable object inside a locked shed or garage
  • Keep ladders and tools stored away; don’t leave them outside where they could be used to break into your home
  • Ensure side gates are locked to prevent access to the rear of the property
  • Ensure rear fencing is in good repair
  • Improve natural surveillance at the front of your property i.e. trim high hedges
  • Remove valuables from view of ground floor windows
  • Store any high value items (i.e. jewellery, passports) in a properly secured safe or bank vault

uPVC Doors & Composite Doors

I was reading an article which mentioned that in the past two decades, over 22 million uPVC and Composite doors have been fitted throughout the UK, but now many older Multipoint locks are reaching the end of their lifecycle.

There is a replacement multipoint lock system available which is a genuine like-for-like replacement.

HIGHEST RISK POSTCODES FOR BURGLARY IN THE UK

I was reading an article regarding burglaries in the UK. I was surprised to see that Dagenham is the largest hotspots in the UK for burglaries. While Suffolk and Folkestone are among the lowest in the country. There has been an increase burglaries in the Greenwich area especially in Blackheath & SE3 postcode. Most burglars are taking advantage of people’s lack of security knowledge. My main advice would be that you should consider what you would do if you were locked out. Think about how you would gain entry to your own home or business. That’s what the burglar does. Then think about how you could make that more difficult.

Yale conexis L1 Smart lock entry system

Emergency call out to an apartment on the 10th floor in Bermondsey SE1. After a customer had one of the national locksmith companies install a Yale Conexis L1 Smartlock entry system to their apartment door. The end result wasn’t good, they installed the locking system incorrectly leaving the customer locked-out of her flat for two days.

Thanks to Yale, their excellent customer service gave the customer Lockmaster1’s contact details.

Luckily enough, I was at the Master Locksmith Regional Meeting in Stratford-upon-Avon, where Yale was demonstrating the new Yale Conexis L1 Smart Lock entry system and was instructed how to install the Yale Conexis L1 Smart Lock entry system correctly.

The only problem encountered was needing remove the lock destructively to install the new Yale Conexis L1 Smart Lock entry system.
