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.

Having your home burgled is a traumatic experience

Losing your laptop, jewellery, mobile phone in a burglary is just the start. Burglars don’t care about damaging your property. They leave a trail of carnage behind by emptying out drawer’s and cupboards and if the contents are not worth stealing they don’t care whether they damage them or not. Knowing someone has been inside your home can be just as traumatic as losing your property and there is the additional fear of the possibility of them returning.

I read an article where it stated that burglary is also more common than you may think. According to figures from UK Crime Stats there are over 450,000 burglaries a year – that’s nearly one EVERY MINUTE across the UK.
To defend your home install a security system burglars are put off by and as new ideas and home security systems evolve alarm systems are becoming smarter than ever,

Defenses such as Ring.com doorbell ,fake TV’s, and door / Smart home IP cameras which can be accessed by your smart phone are highly recommended and in addition why not get a free security check from your local Master Locksmith Association member.

Most properties are empty 80% of the time.

At Lockmaster1 we can supply almost any security solution which is needed for the home or business.
