As the evenings begin to get darker, we’re helping you secure your great outdoors ready for winter. To fortify your exterior, week three focuses on CCTV, lighting and outdoor security.
For 24-hour protection, ensure your CCTV system has infrared LED night vision, enabling you to keep an eye on your property around the clock.
Security lighting not only increases visibility, but also acts as a great deterrent for those thieves who are shy in the spotlight.
Don’t make the perimeter around your property easy to access. Secure gates with a heavy-duty, weatherproof padlock, trim hedges for improved visibility and make sure fences are in good repair.
As the weather cools, don’t leave ladders, tools or garden furniture lying around outside. Lock these items away with a heavy-duty padlock. For extra peace of mind secure individual items with anchor locks and cables.
Top tip! Use automatic timer-switches to turn lights on or off when you’re out to make the property appear occupied.
