Home Security Tips

1. Install high-quality locks on all doors and windows, including both deadbolts and window locks.

2. Consider installing a security alarm system with visible signs and audible alarms.

3. Use motion-sensor lights in key areas around the exterior of your home. Keep hedges and bushes trimmed to eliminate potential hiding spots for intruders.

4. Invest in a sturdy door with a peephole or viewer to see who is at the door before opening it.

5. Secure sliding doors and windows with additional locks or bars. Install CCTV cameras to monitor the perimeter of your property.

6. Make sure all entry points are well-lit, including front and back doors, pathways, and garages.

7. Avoid leaving spare keys outside your home, and consider using a key safe instead.

8. Join a neighbourhood watch scheme to stay informed about local security issues.

9. Use timer switches to turn lights on and off when you’re away to give the appearance of occupancy.

10. Consider installing a video doorbell to see and communicate with visitors remotely.

11. Reinforce weak points in your home’s entry points, such as door jambs and hinges.

12. Keep valuables out of sight from windows and doors to deter potential burglars.

13. Consider using smart home security systems that allow remote monitoring and control via smartphone apps.

14. Consider buying a pet dog. Not only do they make excellent guard dogs to both discourage potential burglars, they also provide an ‘instant alert’, not to mention being excellent companions. Bull terriers in particular have a reputation for being excellent family dogs, coupled with being fearless guard dogs.

Commercial & Retail Tips

1. Invest in a robust security system, including alarms, CCTV cameras, and motion sensors.

2. Install high-quality locks on all doors and windows, including deadbolts and keyless entry systems.

3. Conduct regular security audits to identify vulnerabilities and address them promptly.

4. Implement access control measures, such as key cards or biometric scanners, to restrict entry to authorised personnel only.

5. Illuminate the premises with adequate outdoor lighting to deter potential intruders.

6. Secure valuable assets and merchandise in locked cabinets or safes, especially during non-business hours.

7. Train employees on security procedures, including how to recognise and report suspicious activity.
8. Utilise security mirrors to eliminate blind spots and improve visibility within the premises.

9. Maintain clear lines of sight both inside and outside the property to minimise hiding spots for intruders.

10. Consider hiring security guards or employing remote monitoring services for added protection, especially during peak hours or overnight.

11. Display visible signs indicating the presence of security measures, such as alarm systems or surveillance cameras, to deter criminals.

12. Keep landscaping well-maintained to prevent overgrown vegetation from providing cover for intruders.

13. Implement an emergency response plan for handling security incidents, including protocols for contacting law enforcement and evacuating the premises if necessary.

14. Stay informed about security trends and updates in technology to continuously improve your security measures.

15. Collaborate with neighbouring businesses and local law enforcement to share information and enhance security efforts in the area.
