Description

A burglary at home is a distressing and devastating experience that can impact on your whole family. Despite this, many homes are remarkably insecure. One-in-three burglars don't have to force their way in - they get in through an open door or window.

Removing this kind of temptation would prevent an estimated 90% of all burglaries.

The following advice will help you to protect your home and outwit potential intruders.


Company description
Make sure doors and door frames are strong and in good condition. Fit robust deadlocks conforming to British Standard BS3621 on your front and back doors and keep them locked at all times - even when you are at home.

Check your windows

Ensure your windows and window frames are in good condition.
Fit window locks - thieves hate attracting attention by breaking glass.
Always lock your windows when you leave home and double-check that French windows and patio doors are secure.
Ensure sliding patio doors that slide on the outside cannot simply be lifted up and off the runners by potential offenders.
Lighting-up time

Making potential thieves feel exposed when approaching your property can help reduce the risk of a burglary. The best option is low wattage lighting that comes on automatically at dusk and goes off at dawn. Locate lights carefully so they don't create dark shadowed areas that could provide hiding places for thieves. Using economy light bulbs costs less that 1p per night and you can control the on/off cycle by using a timer.

Fit a burglar alarm

A visible burglar alarm will make a potential intruder think twice. Use it whenever you leave the house and when you go to bed - most alarms can be set to go off in a particular part of the house (downstairs only, when you are upstairs, for example).
