The 5 most effective changes you can make to improve your home security

There are many different things you can do to ensure your home is as safe and secure as it is possible to be. If you had to pick the 5 most useful of these, this would be our selection:


Change the locks

Change the locks

If you are moving into a new home, or there have been some changes at your current home and you cannot account for all the keys that have been cut, then the first thing you should do is change the locks. Instant peace of mind!


Be neighbourly

It pays to have neighbours looking out for you if you are away. Give a trusted neighbour a spare key, let them hide your free newspapers and letters out of sight, and keep an eye on the property.


Lock yourself in

Making sure the front and back doors are locked even when you are inside is really important. Many an opportunistic burglar will try his luck at any time of day - whether you are there or not.


Make it difficult for them

Make it difficult for them

Burglars always look for the easy target. You can make your home less inviting to them by just adding a few features like a security alarm and outside responsive lighting.


Be private

Just a few harmless comments on social media about your holiday could be all someone needs to plan entry to your home. Be cautious and don't advertise when your home is empty.
