HEAT WAVE ON THE HORIZON BUT WHAT ABOUT CRIME?…………………
Did you know that figures show that during the summer months crime rates actually increase? With the later evening comes more light which does offer an element of security, however it does open itself up to some other security issues which thieves know how to exploit.
WARMER DAYS AHEAD
As the days get warmer and we all begin to spend more time outside with windows open as well as gates and sheds there are things we can do to prevent intruders entering the house or our premises. Be sure to lock any gates and shed doors with suitable padlocks wherever possible and keep the key somewhere safe and out of plain site. If you already have an alarm system it is likely you will have the ability to set up part sets and potentially secure separate areas of the property whether that be a garage or shed. If you are looking to get an intruder alarm system then this is a feature you will definitely want to think about, as it adds another layer of security at a relatively low cost in comparison to what you may already be spending on a basic installation.
WIFI OUTSIDE BUT DON’T FORGET YOUR PHONE
As tech continues to improve most of us can now receive Wi-Fi signal from the comfort of a deck chair in our gardens, whilst we soak up the rays. If you are catching some sun and decide to head back in biefly then be sure to take any mobile devices or phones back in with you as these can also be a temptation for people passing. With a whole host off tracking apps on IOS and Android there are also ways to protect and follow your phone to its location should it be taken.
