Summer is here which means a lot of us are jetting off on holiday to enjoy some sunshine and sea air. It can, however, be daunting to leave your home unattended while away for extended periods of time.
Luckily, there are many safety measures you can take to help to ensure your home is protected and secure while you are gone so that you can enjoy your holiday and return home knowing all your belongings are safe behind locked doors.
First, and perhaps most obviously, is to ensure all your doors and windows are locked. Many potential burglars will be dissuaded from entering a home that does not have an easy access point and may therefore move elsewhere if they find all the doors and windows have been locked.
This, however, isn’t always the case. Many break-ins still occur even when homes are fully locked and secured, therefore further safety precautions may be taken in order to ensure your home is as secure as possible.
This can include installing intruder alarms and cameras which can help to further protect your property. These are fantastic as many systems allow you to monitor your property from mobile apps which can give you peace of mind as you are able to check in whenever you wish to.
Alarm systems can be set up and controlled in many ways and most use password systems which means they can only be turned off by the homeowner.
Many systems also have built-in emergency alerts whichnotify the local authorities if the alarm is not disabled within a certain time.
Camera systems can also be a huge deterrent as potential burglars may be put off from entering a property which has CCTV for fear of potentially being recognised and arrested for breaking and entering.
