Keep It Out of Site!
Leaving your possessions in sight of passers by is a dead give-away to potential burglars. You should always ensure bikes, mowers & other electrical garden goods are stored away in either a garage, your house or out of site of the main building. Take a look into your house from the front & see if you can spot any valuables, this is an invitation for burglars. Remember that if you do have a Home Alarm Security System with a live bell box or even a dummy bell box, ensure that this is highly visable as these are proven to work against burglers.
Your Spare Key!
Never leave your spare key hidden under a door mat or flower pot. This is once again an open invitation for a burglar to enter your home with no trouble and no forced entry. Having an identification information on your keys is not a good idea, if you lose them they could easily end up in anyones hands and can easily be traced back to your house. Consider leaving them with a neighbour.
If burglars think that there is someone in at your home, chances are they will move on and wont attempt anything. Just by leaving a light on or an automatic timed light, this will stop a burgular in their tracks. Having an alarm system with us at Century you get LED flashing bell box to show when it is alarmed. Once again by having one of our alarms in a visable place or even a dummy bell box this is proven to prevent a burglary taking place.
Know Your Neighbours!
This may seem like a daunting step, but just by introducing yourself this could have huge benefits for the safety of your home. They can look after that spare key and also will be much more likely to report any unknown guests or suspicious activities.
This might sound a little too obvious but more than 40% of break ins happen without forced entry. Always check and double check that all of your windows, doors, garage, extensions, cars and porch are locked. This is the very first thing a burglar will check and by not doing so leaves everything in the hands of the intruder.
