Our first tip will cost just a bit of money, but it’s worth it. Ensure you have a deadlock fitted in your external doors. A deadlock requires a key to rotate the cylinder and it’s quite different from a spring loaded lock that’s much less secure. Call a locksmith and get this attended too straight away.
2) Consider restricted keys
Next time you need a new lock fitted. Make sure your new lock as a limited key. In essence this means that your key cannot be easily copied. The keys are optimized and can only be copied by an authorised agent of the lock manufacturer.
3) Secure that Ladder
If you maintain a ladder in the backyard, you could be making it a simpler for a burglar to access an open upstairs window. Get a solid lock and chain and either attach it to something fixed, or chain it to a heavy weight or perhaps to a bike. This will make it very difficult to use unless you have the key.
When you go off on vacation, or are away from home, use timers for security. Set up at least three timers in different rooms of the home to turn on and off lights and a radio throughout the day and evening. This will make it look as though someone’s at home and should help deter burglars.
5) Wireless Videos Cameras
You can purchase small wireless video cameras really cheaply nowadays, and being wireless, they are quite easy to install. They generally have a variety of around 30 yards and can transmit an image to your TV or recorder. The fact that they are there will deter many thieves and the will of course allow you to monitor activity around Your House
But the more unusual your car is, the less likely it is to me stolen. If you put decorative stickers or other adornments in your automobile which make it non-standard, the more likely you are to avoid it being stolen
7) Don’t forget the shed
If you store things in the shed (as the majority of us do) like bicycles, lawnmowers and tools, here’s a great tip. Get a chain and padlock and shackle larger items together. It’s quite difficult to steal a bicycle if it’s a lawnmower attached to it!
