Chill Out In The Heat Knowing Your Home Is Secure

on Thu, 11/07/2019 - 6:44pm

Here’s our top tips to protect your home against burglary in this warm weather: 

  • Fit window opening restrictors to all ground floor and other easily accessible windows. This will allow ventilation while restricting access.
  • Close and lock all windows and doors, even if just out in the garden.
  • Remove window and door keys from the locks, store out of reach and away from your letterbox.
  • Keep valuables out of sight, along with any visible signs including charging cables.
  • Hide the keys to your vehicle, and if you have a keyless entry, store the fob in a RFID pouch to block the signal.
