• Never keep spare house keys under plant pots or under foot mats – these are the first places a burglar is likely to look.
• Ensure that garage doors are kept firmly secured – especially if it has a connecting door to your property.
• Don’t leave any valuable items in full view of people passing by your door or windows. This includes gaming stations and handbags etc.
• Remember to postcode all your property.
• If you are planning to go away on holiday for a few nights, use a timing switch which controls the times the lights, radios and other electrical items are activated. This will give an impression that someone is at home.
