In our last post, we discussed office security. Today we’re focusing on ways to improve home security. Before, you may not have taken many steps beyond door locking to protect your home. But now, thanks to smart phones, Wi-Fi and modern technology it is easy to take some extra steps for security and peace of mind. From CCTV to security lighting, we are looking at the top 5 ways to make your home more secure.
CCTV is a great deterrent for burglars. If the worst ever did happen and you had a break in, it’s also the best way to catch a culprit. There are different features of your CCTV to consider such as weather proofing, motion detection and night vision. We can talk you through the features of our different CCTV options and find the best choice for your home.
Motion activated lights or lights on a timer is another great deterrent for criminals. While your CCTV system can have great night vision capability, lighting up the outside of your home will tell any potential burglars to stay clear.
We offer various alarm systems to suit your home. Whether you’re extending and need to update an existing system, or you’re looking to have a wireless alarm system installed, a high-quality alarm system is one of the best ways to improve home security.
Our alarm and CCTV systems can be paired up with remote monitoring via your smartphone. They can even be linked with professional alarm receiving centres. This feature is great for knowing your home is secure if you’re on holiday or working away. Linking your system to an alarm receiving centre means that if there ever is an incident, response times will be fast.
Regular Service and Maintenance
Finally, it is important to have your security systems regularly serviced. Keep your CCTV and alarm systems maintained is really important to ensure the safety of your home. Without the required maintenance your insurance can be invalidated.
