Christmas Security Tips

Christmas security tips from Locked and Secure LtdThis week is always one of the happiest of the year, and we want to make sure it remains so for you and your household.

If you’ve been busy buying and wrapping presents over the last few weeks, take a moment to think how you and your recipients would feel if those gifts were stolen.

Although we all hate to think about it, Christmas is a very lucrative time for burglars. We really don’t want to scare you, we just want to help you enjoy a crime-free Christmas.

There are some simple, free preventative measures we encourage you to take, to ensure you, your family and your presents remain safe this Christmastime.

Make your home look occupied
Use timer switches to turn lights, radios, TVs etc. on and off.

Use your house alarm
If you have one, use it. Alarms are the main deterrent for burglars.

Keep windows and doors locked
Don’t give burglars easy access during the day or night.

Don’t leave keys out for family or friends
Burglars know the types of places you’ll leave a key. Don’t give them an easy access.

Don’t feed Christmas lights through open windows
Use solar or battery operated exterior Christmas lights or install outdoor electrical sockets.

Don’t leave parcel delivery notes on your door
Tell couriers in advance where to leave goods you’ve ordered online.

Don’t leave presents in your car
Bring presents inside after shopping and hide all goods in your boot when you’re out and about.

Keep valuables out of site
Burglars will look through windows. Don’t leave keys or valuables in sight.

Don’t leave boxes out for the rubbish collection
Don’t show thieves all the gadgets, clothes and jewellery you’ve got in your home.

Don’t post your whereabouts on social media
Don’t advertise your home is empty by posting where you are on social media.

If you need any help or advice about securing your home or business, please don’t hesitate to call us on 01908 483233 or 01205 449399, or email us at

We’d like to send warm wishes and heartfelt thank yous to all our customers in 2016. We wish you all a safe and secure 2017!

Wishing you all a very merry Christmas!
