Make this Christmas One to Remember – For All the Right Reasons
With Christmas approaching, and festivities beginning, everybody is excited to relax with family and friends and enjoy a well-deserved rest. Unfortunately however, burglars view this period very differently. With the nights becoming darker and darker, many houses and offices are much more vulnerable to break in’s during December and January than any other time in the year. Make sure you are prepared this winter with the following tips from ABCA Systems – the security specialists:
- Positioning is Key: At this time of the year, many of us are buying valuable and expensive gifts. Don’t attract burglars to these possessions by leaving them in sight through windows or leaving empty packaging outside. Take note of any unusual or suspicious strangers in the area, and make your neighbours aware.
- Keep your House looking Occupied: If you are out to a party or out the house for a couple of hours, make your house look occupied this winter. Leaving little lamps on or using timer switches are a great way of deterring potential burglars away from your house. If you are travelling away this Christmas, installing an intruder alarm is the best way of ensuring a peaceful and relaxed Christmas break.
- Protect your Property (Front and Back): Shutting down the offices or other properties you own? Make sure they’re protected against burglaries this winter. Simply having a visible CCTV camera at any potential entry points for your home or offices, will result in potential thieves being deterred from your property. The vast majority of break ins occur round the back of buildings as they are less likely to be seen by the public, make sure all possible entries, albeit doors or windows are firmly shut, and the whole property is protected.
Sticking by these three main tips this winter should result in a peaceful and relaxing winter break for you and your families.
