Security resolutions for the new year

It’s almost the new year, and with that thought probably comes other thoughts which include new year’s resolutions. We all do it – every year we take a look at the things we’re fairly certain aren’t quite right in our lives and promise ourselves (and possibly others) that we’re going to fix them. It could be getting a new job because we are miserable in our current one. It might be getting fit and healthy because we’re tired of getting puffed out doing simple things.

Christmas is such an enjoyable, exciting season, and we all feel that little bit kinder towards our fellow man. Well, nearly all of us.

What type of CCTV is best for your business?

You might initially think that there is just one type of CCTV system – all you need is a camera and for that camera to feed to somewhere such as a control room (in larger businesses) or a laptop (in smaller ones) and that’s it. However, although CCTV doesn’t need to be and should never actually be complicated, there are some additional factors to consider before opting for one type of CCTV system over another. Here are some of the questions you should ask yourself – the answers will point you in the right direction.   Inside Or Outside? Many […]

5 Reasons Why Burglars Won’t Choose Your Home

Some properties are more enticing to burglars than others. Some will effectively (and sometimes literally) leave themselves open to theft, and these are the properties that will be targeted first. In order that your home is not one is them, and is a property that a would-be burglar would rather steer completely clear of, here are some of the main reasons why a burglar won’t choose your home.   Good Lighting Burglars tend not to break in on a ‘spur of the moment’ idea – instead, they will take the time to study each property and work out whether it is […]

Halloween Home Security Tips

Love it or loathe it, Halloween is here again and that means you’ll have lots of little strangers (and some not so little) knocking on your door. Although most of them will be perfectly innocent kiddies looking for some sweet treats, and, despite the ‘threat’ of a trick if they don’t get anything, they’re unlikely to cause any harm, there will be some who are less innocent and who might be taking the opportunity of the busy night to steal from unsuspecting victims.   Halloween is a strange night of the year since we willingly open our doors to strangers, but […]

Five reasons to replace your locks

Having to worry about the security of your home or business is not something you want to add to your list of things to be concerned about, especially when there are so many ways to improve these security measures. One of these ways is to ensure you have good quality, strong, secure locks on all of your doors; this will give you the confidence to step away from your property and stop worrying about what might happen to it when you are not there.   Since locks are so important, it is also important to remember that there will be times […]

What security do you need to consider when you’re moving to a new house?

Moving home is often a stressful time, no matter how exciting and positive it might be at the end. Packing up everything you own and saying goodbye to somewhere you have lived for perhaps many years, as well as all the paperwork and financial issues that come with buying and selling a house (or even moving from one rented accommodation to another), is enough to make anyone forgetful about what might be seen as the smaller things.   However, if one of those ‘smaller things’ is the security of your new home, you’ll need to think again. It is crucially important […]

How to protect your garage or outbuildings

Securing your home is something that you will know how to do – or at least have a good idea about. However, what about your outbuildings such as sheds and garages? Are they secure? Could they be at risk? It’s essential that you keep these in mind as well when you are looking at security features for your home, as they can be some of the most vulnerable spaces you own. This risk is heightened because not only are they generally kept separate from the house, but they also contain many tempting items such as bikes and tools. Therefore, […]
