security systems for sheds and garages

Is your garage or shed burglar-proof?

Security solutions for garages and sheds installed in Leeds

For this week’s blog post we thought we’d shed (sorry!) a little light on the importance of protecting garages and outbuildings from the theft. Sheds and garages tend to be overlooked when we think of home security but because they’re often used to protect valuable items such as bikes, power tools and golf clubs, it’s vital that they have the security they need.

Why you need to protect your shed or garage

Thanks to the rise in the popularity of cycling over recent years there has been an unfortunate increase in the number of bike thefts from sheds and garages. Thieves often steal bikes ‘to order’ and are more likely to target properties where they know expensive bikes are stored. With this in mind, it’s a good idea not to leave a bike rack permanently attached to the roof of the car as this is a visual clue thieves will look for.

Most bikes are stored in a shed or garage located on a driveway or garden. These areas can be particularly dark at night and so installing security lighting is a great way to further deter thieves. We install a range of security lighting products with options to suit all requirements and by illuminating the outside areas of your home, you’ll not only enhance the security of your outbuildings but the rest of your home as well.

We also install security systems suitable for protecting sheds and garages. With options including stand-alone systems or systems designed to integrated with an existing alarm, fitting a security alarm offers a great way to give your valuable bikes the protection they deserve.

It goes without saying that all these security solutions are ideal for protecting most sheds or garages – regardless of what you store in it! Taking a few simple steps to improve security could also help you reduce your insurance premiums whilst providing you with much needed peace of mind.
