Home Security during Christmas

16th December 2021

There are only a few weeks left until the festive season. As you are probably getting busier with your shopping and planning the upcoming celebrations, we wanted to share some tips on how you can improve your home security during the busy Christmas period. It is known that burglary rates increase during December. Many of us are away from home, giving the perfect opportunity for potential burglars. During 2020, many of us had to spend most of our time at home, resulting in a slight drop in theft levels. However, ever since January 2021 up to September 2021, theft claims have increased by 33%. Interestingly, according to Aviva, 75% of attempted burglaries happen when people are at home. 

Smart Alarms 

There are many things you should consider when it comes to your home security during the festive season. One of them is to invest in a smart alarm system. There are so many different systems available that can take your home security to the next level. Starting from more simplistic options to complete alarm systems with cameras, motion detectors, door and window sensors, live sirens, remote controls and many other excellent options.
