With burglaries on the increase, it is vital all of us know and act on home security issues. There are many products available on the market that are designed to increase our home security, but we must not forget the basics too.

Widows – all windows should be locked from the inside ideally with a key and the key put out of site. This should also be done for windows on the first/ second floor etc as they can often be accessed with ladders quite easily. Often if you have not locked your windows and you are broken in to an insurance company my not pay out.

Doors – as with windows, these should be locked and secured. Some locks are very easy to break so it is recommended that you upgrade to a security lock that has been police approved.

Valuables – leave all valuables out of site. Hiding away laptops, phones and other expensive equipment can be enough to deter a breaking and even leaving your blinds or curtains shut will stop them from seeing in to the property and viewing items that will be easy to seize.
