Our team are happy to answer any Security questions you have
- Often burglars will trip alarms and then wait to see if people respond to the alarm. If they see no response they will then burgle the premises knowing they can take their time doing it. Having your alarm monitored or at least ringing your neighbours restricts the amount of time burglars have in your home.
- Your house may be alarmed but is your shed, garage or out buildings.
- Ensure your alarm is serviced regularly, at least annually.
- Don’t forget to lock and alarm your boat, trailer and other expensive items that may not be kept inside buildings. External beams, tamper switches or security strops wired to your alarm can be installed to protect these.
- Panic buttons and medical alarms can be connected to a monitoring service though your alarm system; with your own specific instructions e.g. Call ambulance etc.
- A lot of burglaries happen when people are out for a short periods. Turn your alarm on like you would put on your car seat belt….. Every time.
- Ensure your security equipment as in alarms, smoke detectors, cameras and access systems are serviced regularly, at least annually.
- Change security codes regularly to prevent previous staff accessing premises and confidential information.
Holiday Security Tips:
- When going on holiday install timers to turn on/off lights and radios etc to make others think someone is in your home
- If living alone have 2 large pairs of shoes sitting at the front door so it seems more than one person lives there.
- Have someone clear your mail and mow your lawns.
- Have someone to open and close curtains on a regular basis.
-Give family phone numbers to trusted neighbours or monitoring company.
