Properties without security protection are five times more likely to be burgled
Hello, I’m Peter the owner of Eurotech Security Systems, a reputable provider of security systems for residential and commercial properties. In this article, “Properties Without Security Protection Are Five Times More Likely to Be Burgled”, I highlight the importance of having proper security measures in place to prevent burglaries.
By citing relevant statistics, I emphasise the significant risk of burglary faced by properties without any security protection. I provide valuable information on the various types of security systems available, including burglar alarms, CCTV systems, and access control systems, and explain how each system can help deter burglars and protect your property.
As a provider of reliable security systems, I understand the importance of taking proactive measures to protect your home or business from burglary. My article stresses the need for homeowners and business owners to invest in trustworthy security systems to ensure that their properties are well-protected.
By reading this article, you will gain a better understanding of the risks of burglary and the importance of investing in reliable security measures to protect your property and loved ones.
Properties without security protection are five times more likely to be burgled than those that have security systems in place. It’s surprising how just a few simple security improvements can deter a burglar.
Here are a few tips…
- 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
- Mark your property with postcode and house number and register your property for free with Immobilise
- Consider joining or forming a Neighbourhood Watch scheme
- 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
