Outdoor Security

Good security measures both on and around your home is important, so by implementing some or all of the security measures mentioned below you will be able to achieve a high level of security to protect your property.

Outdoor Security Improvements:

  • Outdoor Lighting.
  • Use blinds and curtains.
  • Keep valuables out of sight and locked away.
  • Keep bushes and shrubs under control.
  • Secure garages and outbuildings.
  • Make sure garden tools and equipment have been securely locked away.

It is not necessary to implement all of these security measures at once. Take your time and do them as and when time and budget allow. You can start straight away using blinds or curtains to prevent people from being able to have a good view into your home, you can also clear up the garden and make sure there are no good hiding places for potential burglar behind overgrown bushes!

When budget allows, installing a fence or gate around your property is a vital security measure, it puts and extra barrier between your home and the burglar so they may not even attempt a break-in in the first place, instead carry on looking for an easier target.

CCTV and outdoor lighting work well at deterring burglars but they wont prevent a break in on their own so it is always import to ensure high security locks are installed on your doors, garage doors and any outbuildings.
