This week National home security month are focusing on the great outdoors - looking at outdoor security.
It’s that time of year when sunny days, seem like a distant memory. Its cold, it’s dark, and yet again it’s been raining!
However, Autumn also sees you planning for celebrations, visiting family, socialising with friends, and of course the endless shopping trips in preparation for the festive season.
At the end of October we see the clocks go back and burglaries increase, with malicious damage rising around 160% at Halloween, whilst burglaries in November peak by 22%, with Bonfire Night being the worst day of the year, as families enjoy the local displays.**
But what can you do? The easy option would be to stay at home, order everything online, invite friends to you, and of course enjoy the endless repeats shown on television in the winter!
However, would it not be easier to look at how secure your home is?
Technology has moved forward leaps and bounds over the years, and the complicated technology that meant paying not only for the expensive equipment, but the rather sizable installation fee is now a thing of the past.
Call your local Locksmith in Essex and get them to come round and give your property a security check and inform you what you may or may not need to improve.
There has already been reports of a few burglaries in Maldon, witham and Chelmsford last week.
So please get a home security check before its too late.
A.R Locksmiths in Maldon can help with any of your security needs, security checks, install British standard locks, fit alarm systems and secure your home after a burglary if it should happen.
