The Olympics is fast approaching, and whilst your eyes may be focusing on the Games a burglar’s eyes may be watching your house.
Home security is more important now than ever due to a heightened risk of burglaries over the summer, with one fifth of British homes experiencing more than one burglary event a year. Burglars are opportunists and if they see a chance - no matter how big or small - to get into your property then they will; one silly mistake could lead to devastation.
Your attention will turn towards the games and in doing so makes your house an easy target because you may forget to check all security options. ADT provides home alarm systems that are designed especially for you and your home. Their Home Security system will help keep your home protected from unwanted intruders and even flooding. It is not only burglars that pose a threat to the security of your home but fires can start when attention is elsewhere too. With an ADT Home Security solution you can also add smoke alarms to your alarm system which will warn you the minute it thinks there is a threat of fire.
Whether you are trying to escape the UK this year or are taking part in the festivities that are taking place around the country, your house will be vacant more so this year than any other. Burglars will take full advantage of a property that isn’t properly secured. A property that has an alarm system deters 84% of burglars away from your property, and the ADT burglar alarms are monitored by security professionals 24/7, 365 days a year, to put your mind at ease.
Added to this and to increase your home security you should install CCTV systems so even though your house will be vacant there is always the security of the CCTV monitoring everyone that comes to your house.
When the hot weather arrives it is fine to leave doors and windows open, but only if you are in your property. No matter how long you go out for, even if it is just up the road to the local shop, make sure everything is locked and closed. This does not only account towards the day but at night time as well - almost 32% of burglaries take place at night, so always double check every lock and every door.
With the installation of a single ADT system your home could have a carbon monoxide sensor which will let you know when it detects the poisonous gases and make you realise that there is more to those symptoms than what you first thought.
