Do you make these 4 home security mistakes?

Whilst most people are quite security savvy there are some common mistakes that we’re all guilty of. It’s easy to become quite relaxed when it comes to security if you haven’t been victim to theft before but this is when the thieves pounce. In this blog we’ll give 4security mistakes that many people are guilty of and how you can avoid them.

Leaving things unlocked

This is the most common mistake people make. As we have mentioned, people quickly become relaxed in terms of security and take less care to make sure that everything is locked before they leave the house.

This is most common on upper levels of the property, especially on hot summer days. Leaving the window open whilst your out does seem like a good idea when it’s hot, but it’s also an invitation to burglars. An open window gives the thief an easy way into your property and the chance for them to get their hands on your precious belongings.

Hiding keys around the property

This is another all too common problem. “No one will find the front door key if I leave it under this plant pot”. Believe us when we say that burglars are well aware that people do this, and will check every nook and cranny before pulling out their crowbar.

If someone is going to arrive at your property whilst you’re out and need access try and organise another solution. Hiding the key under the mat by the door might seem like a good idea at the time, but you won’t be thinking that when you come home to find all of your belongings have been stolen.

Not activating or utilising alarm systems

It might sound odd, but some people have an alarm system but don’t use it. They think that just by having some sort of alarm on display they’ll be able to deter any burglaries.

These criminals aren’t stupid. They know their trade well and are aware of trends in security and where people fall short. Regardless of whether they see an alarm, they’ll still test the property to see if they can gain entry.

Before leaving the house or going to bed make sure that you always turn on your alarm system! If someone’s breaking in whilst you’re fast asleep nothing is going to alert you to an intrusion like a loud alarm.

A build up of mail

Nothing says “no one will be at this property for a while” like a build up of mail.

If you’re heading on holiday all of your bills, junk mail, subscriptions to Horse and Hound will build up beneath your letterbox. Thieves will check this out. It tells them that you’re away and they can take all the time they need to break in.

To avoid this, ask neighbours, friends or family members to head round to the property and clear all the mail up and move it somewhere out of site. Ask them to always visit at different times of the day too. A thief will take note of schedules and plan the break in around them.

So there you have it, 4 home security mistakes that nearly everyone has been guilty of at some point. With a little foresight and common sense you can make sure that your property is safe from any unwanted thievery.
