With Autumn here, October is the month where we begin to see the daylight hours rapidly reduce and this weekend, on Sunday 27th October, the UK clock change will also take place. This is when ‘Daylight Saving Time’ ends and the clocks turn back 1 hour so that we may gain an extra hour of daylight in the mornings; this marks an important time in the autumn home security calendar and so assessing if your home is secure enough for the winter is imperative.
Investing in just a few simple autumn home security features
For workers, leaving home and arriving back in the dark will soon become a daily occurrence. Investing in just a few simple autumn home security features will go a long way to protect your property and your family.
Indoor lighting – Lights on timers are a great, not only do they make your home feel a little more welcoming when you arrive home to in the dark, but they also give the appearance that someone is in the house and deter intruders from thinking the house is vacant.
External lighting – Sensor lighting will illuminate the external area of the premises when any one approaches your property. This will not only draw your attention to the outside if you are in the house but again it could also deter anyone who is thinking of gaining entry.
House alarm – A house alarm can easily installed in your home by SGS Systems Ltd to protect the whole property and / or specific areas. All of our SGS Systems Ltd house alarms are installed by certified fitters and are annually serviced to ensure that they operate in excellent condition.
CCTV Security – Installed both internally and externally, our 24/7 monitoring camera equipment will produce clear imagery both day and night. Again, cameras can not only deter criminals but should they try to gain entry, then the footage could be used as legal evidence.
