Smart Home Alarm System Checks – Advice from RACAM
Though you may not want to venture outside too much in these cold winter months, it is worth it. Inspect any outbuildings you may have; garages, sheds, caravans and even motorhomes, to make sure they are as secure as possible. Fix weatherproof locks to anything that holds value; including lawnmowers and bikes! Also, if your home is accessed from a private road or driveway, take steps to make it obvious if someone is heading towards your property. If you don’t have CCTV on the outside of your home, now may be the time to invest in some equipment.
Doors and Windows
Be sure to double check the security and state of your doors and windows. Though you may have been checking the safety of entrances and exits to your home regularly throughout the year, you need to maintain this and improve it over winter. We can guarantee that a smart home alarm system will be a positive addition to any home.
The final and most important security check you must carry out before heading into the new year is the overall condition of your home security system. Make sure every aspect is fully operational, from your intruder alarms to your fire alarms – check all properties you own and those of other family members who may find it difficult to do so. If you notice a fault or problem with one, the RACAM team will be there to help!
