All,

Summer is here and here to stay (hopefully), below is the three main mistakes people make with home security.

1: Leaving the front and back door open - When the weather is hot people tend to leave the front and back door open which leaves the house very vulnerable. Opportunist burglars will use this to their advantage and without you realising they will be in your house without you realising. By simply shutting and locking the door if only the front door you will reduce this risk.

2:  Leaving windows open when not in the house - When not at the property shut the windows so that your house is secure and this will reduce the risk of burglaries.

3:  Sheds and bikes left insecure - Outside Sheds and outbuildings get forgotten about and left unlocked when popping out the house, this is a prime opportunity for unwanted visitors to come into your garden and take your items. Bikes are one of the most common things to be stolen out of the garden as they are left unlocked.

By taking note of the above you can reduce the risk of your house being burgled and items stolen.

Many Thanks
