8 Home Security Mistakes you’re Making

mistakesEvery day we make mistakes that leave our homes vulnerable to a break-in. A burglar will always choose the easiest target and that’s good news for you – it means you have a lot of influence on whether you become a victim or not.

  • Hiding keys by doorways – leaving keys near door ways is very risky as you risk someone duplicating your key and breaking in whenever they want.
  • Leaving out mail – an overflowing mailbox is a good sign that no one is home as well as it allows criminals to steal your mail and gain personal information.
  • Open windows – windows are often the easiest entry point for burglars to access your home as doors can be sturdy and deadlocked.
  • Leaving valuables in sight – valuables should be left out sight so that burglars and stored away as expensive items signal that you have money and is a clear indicator to a burglar that your home is worth targeting.
  • No visible security – securing your home with burglar bars and visible security measures is a huge deterrent to burglars.
  • Not maintaining your yard – a messy yard is a signal to a burglar that you are an easy target as untrimmed trees and hedges make for potential hiding places.
  • Updating social media – avoid using social media to let strangers know your whereabouts as you never know who is following you online.
  • A lifeless home – leaving lights and the TV / Radio on a timer can signal to a burglar that someone is home.

Holiday Safety

Holiday SafetyChristmas is a busy time of year for everyone, but ensuring your home is properly protected against festive crime should be made a priority.

Many of us will be spending time away from home visiting family or travelling abroad. It is also a time when the house is full of valuable items such as gifts, food and wine. Because of this, Christmas traditionally sees a sharp increase in domestic burglary, with criminals targeting houses when they are at their most vulnerable.

To avoid being a victim of festive theft, take a look at these tips for protecting your home this Christmas.

While out shopping:

  • Try to avoid doing most of your shopping  in one trip as you may struggle to carry all your bags therefore you will be distracted, making it easier for a thief to steal from you.
  • Keep your handbag closed and hold all bags securely to make it more difficult for the pickpockets.  Keep mobile phones out of sight. Try not to keep too much cash and keep your cheque book and credit card separate.
  • Try not to go back to your car in the middle of the shopping trip to put gifts in the boot, thieves may be watching car parks for this opportunity.
  • Always ensure that Christmas shopping/gifts is placed in the boot of the car and out of sight. Check that  all windows and doors are shut and locked. 

Celebrations:

  • During the month of December we have many Christmas celebrations and social events to attend: remember pubs, restaurants and other venues are often crowded.
  • Don’t leave bags over the back of your chair where its easy for thieves to run off with them. Keep your bag zip closed and your wallet and mobile safely inside.
  • If you will not be driving to the place make prior arrangements as to how you will get home. Make sure someone knows where you are going and what time you will be back.
  • Avoid any potential distraction on the street and don’t get too drunk as you could become an easy target.

At home:

  • Try to avoid putting Christmas gifts under the tree until Christmas Eve!
  • If you go out in the evening make sure that some lights are left on to make it look like someone is home. However, do not leave your Christmas tree lights on when you are out of the house, as these are a frequently the cause of domestic fires
  • If you are going away for Christmas put an automatic timer on lights and ask a trusted friend to watch the house for you. Don’t forget to cancel your newspaper .
  • After Christmas, when taking your rubbish out, make sure that the boxes of your Christmas gifts are not easily visible, burglars will be on the look out to see who received top of the range equipment, worth breaking-in for.
