Home Security during the holidays

With the summer holidays fast approaching you may be planning a trip away. To prevent you from becoming a victim of burglary whilst on holiday, please take a look at some simple, yet effective home security tips listed below:


  • Shut and lock all windows and doors
  • Keep car and house keys out of reach from windows and doors
  • Set timer switches to turn your lights on for when it gets dark
  • Avoid leaving valuables in plain view e.g. laptops and tablets
  • Set any house alarms
  • Lock side gates to prevent access to the rear of your property
  • Keep any tools and ladders stored safely away in a locked garage
  • Don’t advertise that you are away and that your home is empty by ‘checking in’ on social media
  • Resist uploading any holiday snaps to social media until you have returned home
