For burglars, the prospect of empty properties is likely to prove too tempting as more of us leave our homes for a day in the office.
Here are some tips on how to prepare your home for your return to work as you spend more time away from home.
Installing a new security system before you return to work if you have an old security system will show thieves that you are on the case and checking it regularly. In light of advances in technology, now is a good time to consider smart alarms and locks, as well as wireless cameras, which allow you to keep an eye on your property from anywhere.
Using a smartphone, smartwatch, or tablet, you can configure, control, and receive alerts from smart alarms, while smart locks allow you to share virtual keys with family and friends, check their status, and unlock your front door remotely. Now you’ll never have to worry about forgetting to lock up in the morning!
With wireless technology, you can easily install outdoor and indoor security cameras. There are various cameras on the market that connect to your Wi-Fi, giving you access to live images from inside your home while you’re out. Some even have a two-way talk functionality, meaning you can check-in and tell the kids to put the kettle on as you leave the office for the day.
Put away tools and ladders after using them. If these are left outside after completing lockdown DIY projects, they could be used to break into your house; lock them away with a padlock and security cable in a shed or garage.
It is important to consider the value of the property to be protected, the size and strength of the device to which the padlock will be fitted, and the environment in which it will be used when choosing a padlock. If the padlock will be used outdoors, always check its corrosion rating. The gates, garages, sheds, and outbuildings should also be secure.
