Think about where you keep your keys

Car security systems have advanced so far now that the easiest way for a thief to steal the car is often to steal the keys themselves. This can mean picking them from your pocket, or even stealing them from your house.

So think about which pocket you're keeping your keys in when you're out and about. And when you're at home, make sure you don't leave your keys near to an open window, or even within reach of the letterbox. Some nefarious criminals have taken to ‘fishing' through the letterbox for keys using a hooked length of wire.

But don't take your keys upstairs to bed with you. We've heard of an increasing number of cases in which criminals have broken in and threatened car owners when they haven't found the keys they wanted downstairs. Better, we think, to have the car stolen than to have your family put at risk by robbers.

ALARMS

The one mistake many people make is not connecting their security alarm to their windows.

Burglars are getting more skilled and would rather enter your home through your windows than through the doors. So whenever a window is forced open, your alarm goes off, and the burglar runs away.

DO YOU KNOW YOUR LOCKS?

When setting a home insurance policy, you'll be asked the type of locks you have on all of your outside doors.
This way, the insurance companies can assess your property's security level.
It can be difficult to determine which type of lock you have at home, but it's important to get it right (https://youtu.be/MOtMphWv2l0)

UPGRADE YOUR LOCKS

Locks are key in home security.
It is recommended to fit your front door with a British Standards (BS) 3621 five-lever mortise deadlock.
We would also advise adding an automatic deadlocking rim lock.
