Secure your home this summer

Security advice from FirstEye

Around one million burglaries and attempted break-ins take place in the UK this summer, with over 200,000 of these taking place during the summer months. These figures are alarming and with this in mind, it’s essential to ensure that your home is as safe and secure as possible.

When the temperature finally begins to rise and the sun starts to come out, it’s our natural inclination to spend as much time as possible outdoors. Summer is a time for relaxing and it’s easy to forget the importance of keeping doors and windows closed whilst we’re outside enjoying the weather.

Our tips for safeguarding your home

It’s this complacency which proves so tempting to opportunist burglars and if they see a chance to enter your home with minimal effort, they’ll take it. Whilst our advice is to make sure it’s not easy for someone to break into your home, there’s no need to turn it into a fortress once the weather warms up!

There are many basic security steps you can take to help secure your home; ranging from planting prickly plants around the perimeter of your garden, through to fitting window locks and a robust padlock to the shed door.

CCTV designed to provide round-the-clock protection

However, by installing a security alarm and CCTV system, you’ll be providing yourself with round the clock surveillance. To go one step further, you could consider installing a CCTV and security system which is linked to a home automation system, offering you the capability to be able to check that everything’s OK at home, even if you’re thousands of miles away.
