CCTV & Burglar Alarms - Keeping You Safe Through Summer and Beyond

It’s important to keep both your home and workplace safe during the summer months when it may be considered a worthy hit for burglars. What you can do is to protect your properties by investing in quality burglar alarms and CCTV.

Don’t forget that summer means holidays, a time when you pack up for a few weeks and spend your time either with relatives here in the UK, or abroad for a little sun. In the meantime, while you are away burglars are on the prowl and an empty house is a great opportunity for a haul.

Keep Your Home Safe With CCTV Cameras

Installing CCTV is a disincentive for any would-be burglar. Just the sight of it should be enough to put them off. Your home is much less likely to be broken into if you have good quality cameras. A good CCTV system is a great way of keeping your home under surveillance and you may find that neighbours are happy to contribute financially towards the cost if they can also benefit from it too. Sharing a CCTV system with your neighbours will also include sharing the cost.

You don’t have to spend a fortune, but make sure you have quality cameras in place

However, CCTV equipment needn’t cost the earth and can start from modest prices, going up to thousands if you’re after a more top of the range system. You don’t have to spend a fortune, but if you want to capture clear images that will deter them or even lead to conviction, then you will need to invest in quality cameras. Also keep in mind that dummy cameras are easily spotted by experienced burglars.

Burglar Alarms

Burglar alarms are also very effective as a deterrent and for catching them in the act. Full systems can be expensive but you will at least have the assurance that your home is safe from harm while you’re away. You can have an alarm system that alerts the police or one that simply goes off on your property, if there’s an intruder.

If you do invest in a home security alarm system, they do come in different forms. Some will come with wave sensors which will detect movement and then set off an alarm. And as we’ve already mentioned it can either go off in your home or be attached to a local police station, or sometimes it can be a security agency.
