Home Security Tips

Wednesday, December 13th, 2017

There’s nothing worse than coming home to find your house has been burgled. And the stress and upset is even more horrendous if you didn’t take the right precautions to make sure your home was adequately protected from crime, therefore compromising your insurance cover.  The good news is, there is plenty you can do to make sure that when you go to bed at night or leave your home, whether it’s for a holiday or just a day at the beach, you can rest assured your treasured possessions are safe.

Who Can Get In?

It may sound silly, but it’s amazing how many people lock the doors but leave a ground floor window open. However, open and broken windows aren’t the only way thieves can get in. Ladders lying around your property may pose an irresistible temptation to a passing opportunist, as will broken windows or other points of access whose obvious state of disrepair makes them stand out as easy targets. And even if your doors and windows have no obvious damage, it’s important to regularly check that they’re fit for purpose and that the locks have been properly fitted. This includes your internal security doors in conservatories and garages. Vulnerable windows, for example on the side of your house, may benefit from the addition of a decorative grille that will add security without making your home look like Fort Knox! And if you’ve got PVC French doors at the back of your property, it’s worth installing top and bottom bolts as these kind of doors are often targeted by thieves.

Consider Cameras

When it comes to state-of-the-art CCTV cameras Perth area residents often choose this option for peace of mind on their properties. Recent innovations in technology mean this is now a hassle-free and affordable option for homeowners who want to be able to see exactly what is going on around their home while they’re inside or even at work! Being able to review what’s been going on in the vicinity in high-quality pictures provides the ultimate in home security. Not only that, it acts as a highly effective deterrent to anyone with ideas about trespassing on your private property.

The Key to Security

It may be a pain, but if you lose the keys to your house, it’s worth thinking about replacing the locks as you never know who may have seen you drop them. Also, if you’ve recently moved into a new property, it’s well worth changing the locks as you have no way of knowing who holds keys to your new home. Leaving keys in locks where someone could reach for them is also a major no-no, as is discarding them in plain sight on windowsills next to the entrance of your home. Car thieves often break into houses, counting on the fact that car keys are usually easily accessible, so have a think about a safe place to store these. Also, don’t forget your outbuildings. If you have valuable tools and other possessions in a garden shed, it’s worth investing in a strong padlock or even the home CCTV Perth residents are increasingly turning towards.

Raise the Alarm

When it comes to security alarms Perth suppliers offer a huge range of choice so your security alarm needs can be tailored to your budget and property size. These days Perth alarms use clever but simple-to-use technology that even children can operate easily. This means it’s never been easier to get a restful night’s sleep, safe in the knowledge your home is secure, whether you are in it or not. If you’re not sure which system is right for you, The Installers expert team can advise you on what package will suit you best. Then after your system is professionally installed all you have to do is to read the easy-to-digest manual and remember to set it! All alarm systems from reputable suppliers will come with a warranty, but it’s also really important to make sure you maintain your system by contacting your security alarm services to have it serviced as advised at the time of installation. It’s also a good idea to change the code from time to time, just to make sure your kids haven’t told all their mates the code and made it common knowledge around the neighbourhood!

Be Socially Savvy

Piles of unopened mail visible on the mat or curtains that haven’t been open or closed for days on end are tell-tale signs to local thieves that you’re out of town and therefore ripe for a robbery. However, these days people forget that when they post pictures of themselves sunning themselves in far flung places, they are also advertising the fact that they are not around! So, think very carefully about who can see you sipping that cocktail on a Balinese beach before you post it on Facebook! Also, if you have a busy house where kids constantly come and go out the back and pets are forever being let in and out, make sure everyone’s mantra is ‘are all the doors locked?’ before going to bed or leaving the house.

Light Up Your Life

Security alarms and CCTV systems provide peace of mind, but sensor controlled lighting is another easy and cost-effective way to add an extra layer of security to your home. Intruders will be far less likely to approach your house if they know it’s going to light up for all to see as they approach the door. Also, installing lighting will make you and your family feel safer when entering and leaving the house in the dark. Not only that, it makes it much easier to find your keys when you get to the door at the end of a night out! The further out in the bush you are, the more important lighting becomes, but it’s a savvy addition to any town house too.

Home Security Tips: Tried and Tested Ways to Minimise the Risk of a Break-In

Wednesday, November 22nd, 2017

Perth is a modern city with a high quality of life and a relatively low crime rate, especially when compared to similar-sized cities in other developed nations. However, no city in the world is impervious to crime, so if you want to prevent your home or place of business from being broken into, you ought to take security seriously.

Most burglars look for easy stealing opportunities because the last thing they intend to do is get caught. They target houses that are frequently vacant or lack security enhancements such as alarms and CCTV security cameras in Perth. Plus, homes that offer a clear view of the interior can be magnets to criminals.

Unfortunately, basic Perth security systems aren’t enough to deter the most hardened and accomplished burglars from attempting to break an entry, but that doesn’t mean you can’t do anything to prevent them from setting their sights on your house.

Here at The Installers, providing homeowners with the most advanced and sophisticated range of home security systems in Perth is just one of our specialities. We supply and install the latest selection of Perth alarms and CCTV security cameras to help you transform your property into a fortress, and all our products come with excellent warranties for your peace of mind.

As a company that genuinely cares about its customers, we’re always on the lookout for top home security tips that could help you avoid becoming a victim of burglary. Below, we’d like to share some of our latest tips with you so that you can continue to feel safe and secure at home as well as keep your possessions away from prying hands.

Seven Lesser-Known Home Security Tips

Admittedly, the chances of somebody breaking into your home are relatively slim, but you never know which property a criminal might target next. If you want your home to be an effective deterrent, you’ll benefit from taking the following tips on board.

  1. Store Your Valuables Carefully

All burglars know that valuables are likely to be stashed somewhere in every property, and they won’t be afraid to search for them by routing through the furnishings and storage items in your bedroom and living room. However, many criminals won’t go anywhere near your child’s bedroom, making it the perfect place to hide important documents and possessions that can’t hurt your youngster. Just remember to store items in high places, such as on top of the wardrobe, so that your kids can’t misplace them.

  1. Install Your Perth Security System Correctly

Large window and decorative glass may be integral elements of your home’s design, but if they make it easy for criminals to peer into your house, you might be unwittingly inviting them to scope out your belongings or identify your Perth security systems. It’s a good idea to limit the view inside your home from outside, and if that isn’t possible, make sure your Perth security alarm can’t be seen from the windows so that burglars can’t tell whether it’s set or not.

  1. Remove Your Mail Slot

In most cases, mail slots are installed against the wood grain of your door, which weakens its structural integrity and makes it easier for criminals to kick open. The best way to prevent this from happening is to buy a new door without a mail slot and use a mailbox instead. If you insist on having a mail slot, make sure it’s positioned near the bottom of your door, ideally no higher than a quarter of the way up.

  1. Leave Your Car Keys by the Side of Your Bed

You should never leave your vehicle keys on a stand next to your front door because doing so virtually invites burglars to drive away in your second most valuable asset. Instead, you should leave your keys by your bed, and if you hear any strange sounds during the night, you can press the “panic” button on your key (if it has one) to trigger your car’s alarm and send criminals fleeing into the night. While we’d love to catch burglars in the act so that justice could be served, it’s better to send them running than to have your home broken into.

  1. Create a Garden Barrier

Planting a few thorny shrubs, such as rosebushes, underneath your windows and around your garden’s perimeter may sound like a primitive security enhancement, but it is a highly effective one. Anything that makes breaking into your home look challenging will deter the vast majority of criminals, so the next time you landscape your garden, think about which plants could bolster your property’s security.

  1. Don’t Pack the Car the Night before Leaving

If you’re driving away to a holiday resort for the weekend with the family, you might be tempted to load your vehicle with luggage the night before departing. However, while this means you can perhaps gain an extra 10 minutes in bed in the morning, it also puts your possessions at risk. By all means, pack your suitcases the night before going on holiday, but leave the task of loading your car with luggage until just before you set off.

  1. Lower Your Telephone’s Volume

Landlines are becoming increasingly irrelevant in the modern world, but plenty of homeowners still have one. However, if your phone’s ringer can be heard from outside, it could give the fact that you’re not at home away to criminals. Instead of letting burglars know that your home is vacant, it’s best to unplug your landline while you’re away or lower its volume so that it can only be heard from inside.
