Christmas Security Tips

Christmas security tips from Locked and Secure LtdChristmastime is well and truly upon us and while that brings plenty of joy and happiness, it can also bring heartbreak for people who don’t consider the security implications of the festive period.

While we all hate to acknowledge it, Christmas is a very lucrative time of year for burglars. Just think of all the gadgets, jewellery and gifts you’ve bought for your loved ones and you’ll soon realise why you should be extra vigilant with your security at Christmas.

We really don’t want to scare you, we just want you to be aware of the possibilities so you can enjoy a crime-free Christmas. That’s why we’ve compiled a list of Christmas security tips for you, to help your festive period be one to remember for all the right reasons.

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
