Whether you are going on a winter break or just heading out for the night, make sure that your home is as safe as possible before you leave. Here’s three easy tips that are sure to deter burglars and keep your home secure while you are away.
A home with lights on is less likely to be broken in to, simply because it looks as if someone is there. Plug socket timers for inside your home are a great idea, whilst motion sensors in the garden will give the impression someone is home.
Cover outdoor wires so that burglars cannot see any gadgets that may be on display. It also means that they will not be able to cut and disarm any security systems in operation.
Exterior door hinges are easier to tamper with as they are more visible to thieves. Look into resetting your hinges to interior ones while you are away.
