Security at home

  • Install a home security system with alarm monitoring and armed reaction.
  • Never listen to music, watch a TV or entertain guests with open or unbarred windows or doors.
  • Report strange vehicles or suspicious activity in your neighborhood to your security company and the police.
  • Never leave a key inside of an exterior door which has glass panels or glass near it.
  • Don’t leave messages on your door stating what time you will be home.
  • Try not to keep large amounts of cash at home.
  • Keep your garden well lit and cut back your trees and shrubs to eliminate any possible hiding places.
  • Please ensure that your house number or address is clearly marked on the outside of your premises.
  • This makes it easier for Emergency personnel to find you if necessary.
  • Store emergency contact numbers on your cell phone or make a note of them next to the telephone.
  • Windows should be secured or closed at night, even if you live above the ground floor.
  • Glass break detectors can be installed onto your existing alarm system, they can be set up to trigger when glass is broken even if your alarm system is not armed.
  • Ensure all your exterior doors are secured with security gates.
  • Burglar bars should be fitted over all windows, especially all windows that can open.
  • Outward opening doors usually have hinges on the outside, making it easier for criminals to remove the hinge pins.
  • Install hinge bolts or security gates to cover these areas.
  • Sliding doors need to be secured against criminals lifting them off their rails.
  • Fit a peep-hole and chain to your front door.
  • Do not leave garden tools or items out when not in use, these can be used to gain entry to your premises.
  • It is your right to see identification cards of callers claiming to be government officials or company representatives.
  • Insist on it, if they cannot be provided or you are still unsure, call your security company and the police.
  • If you come home to an open door or any other sign of forced entry, don’t go in.
  • Contact your security company and local police and wait for them to arrive.
