How to Secure Your Home Against Burglary

Posted in

Did you know that over 80% of burglaries are committed by opportunists? Thieves will happily take advantage of opportunities such as unlocked doors, vulnerable windows, and spare keys left in obvious places such as under doormats.

So even if you’re insured, it’s still worth taking precautions to reduce the risk of theft from your property. Here’s how, and where.

Security Inside Your Home

  • Make sure all windows are fitted with key-operated window locks, and external doors have locked.
  • Check that all windows and doors are locked before going to bed, leaving home, or spending time in your garden.
  • Never leave keys in window or door locks. Keep them out of site and away from doors, windows and letterboxes.
  • Hide expensive equipment, such as mobile phones and laptops, from view. When installing a TV, try to position it so it’s difficult to see from the outside of your home.
  • Keep your valuables in a safe place and out of sight.
  • Take photos of your valuables and security mark them with your postcode and house number. This can deter thieves and help the police to recover stolen items.
  • Set a timer to switch your lights on and off at varying intervals when you’re out to make it look like someone is at home.

You can protect your contents with our indoor security cameras, which are committed to protecting the peace at home.

Store garden tools and ladders securely in your shed or garage, as these can be used as ‘props’ to break into your home.

Make sure your property is well lit, and that your garden is tidy, so burglars don’t have anywhere to hide.

Don’t hide a spare key outside, as burglars know where to look.

Away from Home on Holiday

  • Use time controller plugs with your lamps to make your home look occupied.
  • Don’t talk about your holiday when you’re near strangers, or mention it in social media.
  • Ask a trusted neighbour to keep an eye on your property.
  • Remember to cancel any milk and newspaper deliveries.
