Security Lighting

This is one the easiest deterrents for a burglar, simply having auto activated security lights pointing at vulnerable areas of your home, can quickly scare a thief off if they’re snooping around. They also help when doing chores in darker areas of your home, such as taking the bins outside.

Timed Indoor Lighting

Setting timers on your inside lights can help give the appearance that someone is inside your home. If you have the activated to switch on during the evening/night time when you plan to be out, it can be a huge deterrent to burglars, even when no car is on the drive.

Dead Bolts

Dead bolts are a surefire way of protecting your door against forced entry. They reinforce your locking mechanism, making it almost impossible for a burglar to pick or drill their way into your home.

Security Alarm

The most common and effective method for securing your home is an alarm system, with motion detectors at key places inside your house, and a clear warning sign on the exterior. This is a burglars worst nightmare, and they will much rather target another home, than run the risk of being caught red handed.
