Night burglaries on the rise

burglarThere is a rise in the number of break-ins happening while the owners are in the house. Night is a particularly vulnerable time for homes and families but many of us still do not set our alarms before going to bed.

Here are a few easy ways to protect your home and family at night:

  1. Always set your house alarm – a house alarm is the best ways to keep burglars at bay but it only works if you have activated it!
  2. Check doors and windows – have a regular routine of checking doors and windows before bed.
  3. Put keys away safely – don’t leave your keys in a prominent position near the front door.
  4. Hide valuables – wallets, purses and expensive goods such as jewellery and laptops should be stowed out of sight. Don’t entice a would-be burglar towards your home.
  5. Exterior lights – leave on security lights at vulnerable places in your property such as the back porch or areas hidden from sight.
