October’s here and it’s National Home Security Month. Autumn is statistically the worst time for domestic break-ins as the darker evenings mean that there are more hours in the day when intruders can creep about in the shadows. Bearing this in mind, Yale, and Union along with other companies and organisations are bringing together a different theme for each week in October that focuses on a different aspect of home security.
-Week one, National Home Security Month is Back!
Starting on 3/10/2016, starts with numerous different suggestions of small changes that you can make to keep your home, and everything in it, safe.
-Week two, Safe as Houses.
The weeks beginning 10/10/2016 looks at total home security but concentrates on the weak points that burglars will target first.
-Week three, Smart Home Security
From Monday 17/10/2016 they ask what gadgetry is there on the market that can be used to increase your home’s security, does it really work and which is best for you?
-Week four, Dark Nights
The week starting 24/10/2016 looks at ‘Dark Nights’ as the clocks go back and the nights close in this week provides plenty of advice on keeping your home safer for winter.
