What else other than a barking dog alarm?

 barking dog alarmA home security products which comes recommended from our staff here is one that sounds like a very realistic dog. Many see that man’s best friend the dog is a great guard to have to protect your home, and this is of course something that the locksmith team agrees with. However we also know that not everyone has the time and space for a dog in their lives, and getting a dog just based on security reasons may be somewhat questionable.

However what the locksmith would recommend instead of mans faithful companion as a security measure, is the barking dog alarm, which most commonly works with motion sensors outside of the door, which makes a realistic impression of a dog inside of the home. Accompanied by a warning for the dog sign, you get a pretend guardian of your home, which will be enough to deter most potential burglars should they get too close.

Roses and thorny bushes for the unseen corners of your garden

manchester rosesIt’s common for burglars to enter though a property’s back garden, there are often dark spots, and many fences are not high enough or difficult enough to climb to provide a solid security situation. However something little that the locksmith team would like to suggest for your garden plants, is that of thorny bushes and plants, like for instance a lovely rosebush.

It’s easy for anyone to see that this type of fence would prove a much greater challenge to get passed than many, and with this the risk of your home being targeted for a burglary goes down.

Some CCTV info from your local locksmith

manchester cctvIf you are the ones who have thought about installing a CCTV security monitoring system at home, we can of course help advise you on what is suitable to and right for just your situation. Feel free to give us a call with any enquiries you may have. Meanwhile we would like to share some relevant information which might come in handy.
One of the first things you will run into if you have thoughts on home surveillance is choosing between a colour camera and a black and white camera. When it comes to the choice the main point which your locksmith suggests is a good idea to keep in mind. Is the light levels of the area which is being recorded. In most cases we recommend a hi-definition colour camera, and many of the models also come with an infrared mode that will automatically take over should the light levels go down to low.

For us, the biggest benefit to opting for a black and white camera is the price as it is sufficiently lower, and for some areas with good lights and perhaps a lower risk, but surveillance is still needed it can be suiting. But we would also like to highlight the information that you do get from a colour camera should an incident occur. You can see colours of hair and clothes which can prove very beneficial in finding someone responsible in an incident.

High security tip for hidden entrance points

security barsYou may have one or several potential entrance points to the building which are hidden from the street view, behind bushes, or perhaps simply close to the ground, like many basement windows for example. Here we have a top high security tip for the spots which are hidden at least. We speak of security bars. Most commonly security bars are steel or metal bars which just cover the window, they are extremely difficult to bypass, as they are fixed to the house, and trying to break in through a window with security bars will be a very big and loud job, leaving barred windows at very low risk of intrusion.

Of course, the boys understand that it’s not always the most attractive looking solution, which is why we recommend it for high risk windows which are out of sight. However there are different types of security bars, from fixed ones, to ones that you can open, as well as the kind which are completely removable.

But there are also some very beautiful designs which may suit your home and be a good solution for you. Speak to us here in the city to get more information, and find out what type of options are available that are suited to your needs.

The good and bad of routines from a security perspective

When it comes to home security, or more specifically when it comes to many of today’s burglars, they are becoming more and more intelligent in how they operate, more planned and more preparation work is usually done before they strike. At your local locksmith we see this as meaning that if you have a heavily routine based life, then it’s also something which is easily recognisable and easily taken advantage of. However we also know that with proper security measures taken, it can lessen the risk. On the up side to having a strong routine in your life, means that it’s very easy to take small steps which increase your security such as installing a couple of timers on lights in your home, and setting them to your routines should you go on holiday or go to visit friends and family for a few days.
