As we all start to emerge from the pandemic of the last year and a half, many of us are looking forward to returning to old activities – from going back out to work, to clubs and hobbies and even holidays. As the world starts to open up once again, we will get out of the house more.

 

However, for burglars this is an opportunity to break into homes once again, so something that you might want to consider doing before lockdown ends completely is to make sure that your home is secure and protected from intruders.

Gardens are a great entry and exit point for burglars as they have less chance of being spotted, so make sure that your garden is uninviting to them! Use spiky plants around the permitter of the garden to make it difficult for them to enter and garden lighting that will deter a burglar not wanting to be seen.

Security systems and alarms are essential to protect your home. There are many different styles and options available so get in touch with a company who specialises in these systems like this CCTV Manchester based company Red Dam to install the right one for you.

 

It is also a good idea to check your locks on all of your windows and doors. Many burglars enter a house simply by walking in through the front door or climbing in through a window, so make sure that all of your locks work and always make sure they are used when you are going out anywhere even for a short amount of time.
