National Home Security Month

Protect what matters most

October is National Home Security Month. Although home security is important all year round, we use this month as a spotlight on technology and gadgets that can help keep you, your family, pets and belongings safe. Whether you're home or not. A lot of us are working from home, but it doesn't stop some people from getting in or entering your property. Many of us are now out and about again. With smart home devices, you can keep an eye on your home from anywhere and be alerted through your smartphone in case anything out of the ordinary is happening.

Better security as dark nights descend

Secure your home

With smart home products, there's so many more ways we can keep a better eye on our homes from anywhere. But burglaries still happen when you're in the house. Innovations like smart video doorbells or smart cams with built in floodlights can help you easily identify who's on your property. And if you're inside, you can watch your live camera feed from a compatible smart display.

Smart Alarms and Monitoring

  

Keep an eye on your home

The recent ONS reported over 250k burglaries across England and Wales* in the year ending March 2022. It's unfortunate that we can’t have the peace of mind we want, all the time, but, with smart home security, you can take precautions that give you that little extra reassurance. High-quality cameras, alarms, and CCTV solutions are ideal security products to install within your home, always allowing 24/7 monitoring capabilities.

Smart CCTV Cameras

Feel like you're home, when you're not

Whether you're working, taking the kids to school, running errands or even on holiday. You can monitor your home from your smartphone, tablet, or PC. Differentiate between a human and your pet so the alert doesn't go off unnecessarily. If something’s wrong, you’ll know about it instantly and you’ll be able to act quickly. Features like night vision can help you see what’s going on in the dark, wide-angle viewing makes sure you don’t miss a thing and two-way-talk means you can hear everything and talk back.

Smart Doorbells

Watch from anywhere…and not in a creepy way.

Smart doorbells are a great addition to home security. With HD-video, wide angle lenses, two-way-talk and motion-detection, you won’t be able to miss a thing on your property. Alerts will be sent straight to either your smartphone, tablet or PC, which you can then control easily within the app. From wired, to battery powered, most smart doorbells don’t need to leave the front door. Convenient!

Smart Lighting

Deter burglaries with smart lighting

Smart CCTV, alarms and outdoor cameras are an obvious option for smart home security. However, smart lighting can also play a huge part in keeping your house safe. You can give the impression you’re home, even if you’re not, by switching your smart bulbs on via your smartphone. You can also set schedules and timers, so your home lighting turns off/on automatically.

Your guide to outdoor security

As we near the colder months of the year, most of us will be getting less and less use out of our gardens and outdoor areas. For most people, preparing our gardens for the winter will simple involve locking away the lawnmower in the shed and perhaps popping a new padlock on the gate; however, to help keep our gardens, outbuildings and homes secure over winter, it’s important to perform a full security check of your outdoor areas.

Is your rear side gate secured?

Check that your rear side gate is secured with a weatherproof padlock and hasp, and that it’s still securely attached to the gatepost. If you spot signs that your hasp is loose, or that your padlock is showing signs of corrosion, then replace them with a new unit as soon as possible.

Have you moved tools or ladders?

Move any tools or ladders into a locked shed or garage, or if this isn’t possible, try to secure them to a ground anchor point. This prevents them being used to break into your home.

Have you moved bins out of the way?

Position any bins away from flat-roofed areas. Thieves will often look for ways to gain access to areas like a roof, which can keep them hidden whilst they break in and can potentially lead to an area without alarm coverage, such as a bedroom.

Is your garage secure?

Consider your shed or garage security. If you have a number of valuable items inside, it could be worth investing in a specific outbuilding alarm system, and if the shed or garage has a solid foundation, you can look at installing ground anchor points to give you an extra level of protection.
