Warmer weather means a rise in West Midlands burglaries

Open Window - West Midlands BurglariesWith the rise of the UK warmer weather over recent weeks, sadly West Midlands burglaries are accelerating again. The hotter weather often inspires us to throw open our home windows and doors, but sadly in terms of security this puts our property at risk. Unwanted intruders are easily tempted by easy access opportunities which lay before them.

With this in mind, SGS Systems are reminding all customers and household owners to remember to close and lock your windows and doors when you leave the property and don’t leave any valuables on show to prevent the misfortune of a burglary. This especially applies digital equipment such as smartphones, tablets and headphones which are of high value and can be effortlessly sold on through contacts and selling websites, making them easy targets for petty criminals should they see them on show.

Highlighting concerns around West Midlands burglaries, comes at a time when a new campaign by Neighbourhood Watch and in partnership with the Home Office called ‘Safety in Neighbours’ has recently launched here the UK. As burglaries are estimated to rise further due to lockdown restrictions easing, the aim of the campaign is to create a social media message which will encourage homeowners to be vigilant and to keep an eye out as to any un-toward activity within the road where they live in and the surrounding local area.

Here at SGS Systems we encourage homeowners to have a house security alarm installed or if they have an existing device then we urge households to have them tested. Our company can service and maintain any other installed brand of house alarm to check that it is operating correctly and upgrade if necessary. For more information on protecting your home please see our house alarm website pages for more details or speak to our security advisors with regards to a confidential review of your property.
