Here’s some handy advice from the PFS Website

In addition to those everyday jobs around the home, establish a routine of giving some thought to your security.

One of these crucial jobs is replacing the batteries in your Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarms. Make sure that you add it to your list of things to do on an annual basis, and make a habit of checking them once a week to make sure that they’re working. After all, they are designed to save your life.

Another good thing to add to your list is to check that entry points to your home are still properly secure. Maybe you never got around to replacing the locks after a key went missing, or maybe winter weather has left windows looking a little worse for wear. Whatever it is, check that the locks that you’re using are sufficient and replace them if necessary.

Our gardens and driveways can have an effect on our home security?

Small changes to the outside of our homes can dramatically impact on the security. For example, a gravel covering in certain areas will help to deter unwanted visitors because it creates more noise. This means it much more difficult for someone to approach your property without being detected.

Fencing and hedges are important for our security, but this does not necessarily mean that a higher perimeter is better. The best security is where the perimeter is low enough for neighbours and passers-by to see over, but isn’t so low that it would be very easy to climb.

A fence or hedge that is too high would mean that an intruder would be hidden from the view of passers-by. People who would potentially spot suspicious activity and alert the police. However, having a boundary that is too low would make it very easy to climb, offering little to no security at all. The best bet is to try to ensure that any fences or hedges are kept at a medium height.

Additional lighting in your garden is a great way of enjoying our outdoor spaces, but it can also improve your home security. External lighting helps to remove the cover of darkness that many unwanted visitors depend on. Remember to check and maintain an existing lighting.
