Did you know there were almost 19,000 break-ins in 2014 in Sydney?deter burglars

Many break-ins occur during the holiday period when families leave their homes and go on holiday. With the Easter break just around the corner, there is no better time to take the steps toward deterring burglars. The more difficult you make it for thieves to break in, the less likely they are to try.

Is Your Home Safe?

Many break-ins are easily preventable. It’s up to you to play an active role in reducing chances of burglary.

Think about your home. Do all windows and doors lock? Is your home properly lit at night? Are your screens secured? When you’re away on holiday, does your house still look occupied? If you answered no to any of these questions, your home may be at risk.

Remember, burglary can have a huge impact, both financially and mentally, on families and individuals. Burglars target expensive items that you may be unable to replace, and many people have difficulty overcoming that feeling of violation after a break in has occurred.

Security Lighting

We know that keeping your family safe is your number one priority, and security lighting is one of the most cost-effective ways of securing your home.

Burglars don’t want to be seen. Installing security sensor lights in dark areas of your garden, entryways, driveways and even the perimeter of your yard can discourage thieves from stepping foot on your property.

Motion sensor security lights are a fantastic option. Because they only turn on when they sense motion, they cost less to run than some outdoor lights. Lights with timers also work well, as you can set them to turn on and off at particular times.

Even if you aren’t going on holiday this Easter, having security lights installed is still a valuable investment. We’d like to make sure your family stays safe by offering you some great savings on security lighting. Take a look at our March Specials.

It’s a small price to pay for a sense of security.
