Studies suggest that insurance claims for burglaries in both homes and businesses surge throughout the winter. This is due to the dark, long nights and the run up to Christmas. In this blog post, we take you through just some of the security services you can implement in a domestic and commercial setting to reduce the risks of crime this Winter.
Install CCTV and alarm system
One of the biggest benefits of installing CCTV and alarm systems for your home is that they will deter crime in the first instance, especially pre-planned burglaries. This results in thieves thinking twice about targeting your home or business, helping keep your possessions and family members safe. With this security service, we recommended to clearly advertise the CCTV and alarm system, to ensure maximum security.
Mainly used for commercial properties and sites, security guards can offer 24/7 security. In addition to monitoring and deterring crime, security guards can actively respond to suspicious behaviour and crime. Here at Umbrella Security, all of our security guards are SIA licensed, making sure you receive the highest-quality security service. Find out more about our security guards here.
Lock Doors and Windows
While it may sound simple, a lot of homeowners tend to forget the basic security measures. It’s vital to remember to lock all doors and windows throughout the property, especially if it’s been left empty. You can also install security bars for windows and sliding glass doors for extra security.
