Our 3 Top Tips to Keep Your Home or Business Safe & Secure this Summer

We all love summer; it’s time for enjoying the outdoors and going on holidays. Unfortunately it also means that your property is a more tempting target for burglars. It would be silly to suggest that you miss out on fun a summer so that you can protect your belongings, so this means that you will need to take some other action to keep your property secure. Here are a few suggestions for how you might go about this.

Install an Intruder Alarm Security System

This will mean that your property is protected 24/7. ASH Security are an NSI approved security installer that can design a bespoke security system to suit your exact needs. As well as installing burglar/intruder alarms, a good security system can also integrate with additional security such as CCTV, fire alarms, access control, automated gates and Smoke Detectors.

Make Your Property Look Lived In

If there are no signs of recent occupancy or obvious security measures such as Alarms or CCTV, it can mean that a building looks more inviting to burglars. They may assume that the owners are away on holiday or that they are just not around much. In order to deter this type of opportunistic criminal activity, it is important to make your property look lived in. This means keeping the property well-maintained and not allowing things like mail to pile up.

Avoid Leaving Windows and Doors Open During the Summer

On hot days it can provide a bit of ventilation, but it is also a security risk – especially if people go off and forget to lock windows and doors. It might be better to use other options for keeping your property cool – fans or air-conditioning are a good option.

It is important that you do what you can to keep your property secure during the summer months. That way you will be able to have a bit of peace of mind while enjoying all the fun activities the warm weather brings.
