How much for an alarm system is a pretty good question these days as it’s quite clear that crime is on the increase and burglary has one of the lowest rates for solved crimes in the country. In most cases that nature of burglary is opportunist and the installation of a basic alarm system is more than enough to deter would be intruders.

Lets take a look at some of the steps you can take to protect you home, your contents and of course the occupants:

These are not huge amounts of money but yet the vast majority of homeowners do not think about installing security systems until they have been burgled or you have an incident of some kind.

Just the installation of a dummy burglar alarm box or a dummy camera is enough to deter most opportunistic burglars.


DON’T WAIT UNTIL YOU GET BURGLED BEFORE YOU INSTALL AN ALARM SYSTEM

That’s the message we give out. Nobody want to spend money on insurance but see how happy you are when the insurance companies pay out. When it comes to home, office or premises security, the message is clear, go pro-active and upgrade your security because it’s only a matter of time before your property comes to somebody’s attention.


TOP TIPS TO BEAT THE BURGLARS

Insurer More Than recently surveyed 50 reformed burglars to find out what made certain homes easier to steal from than others.

The ex-criminals said they often collected information about a homeowner’s daily routine to ensure they would be away before attempting a break-in.

Incredibly, one of the most common ways to gain entry was using a spare set of keys the homeowner had left under a plant or welcome mat: clearly not a good idea, but also one which could render your home insurance worthless if your provider decided you hadn’t taken reasonable precautions to secure your property.


INCREASE YOUR PRIVACY

A sign of the times in More Than’s survey was the increased use of data gleaned by burglars from social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter.

Information on such sites can often be easily accessed – so posting a simple message such as “This time next week, I’ll be on the beach!” may increase the chances of you being targeted, especially given there is likely to be more information online that could help criminals work out where you live.

The best bet is to increase you privacy settings, and keep quiet about when you’ll be away if possible.


TOP TIPS FROM THE POLICE

Burglars say that the most effective deterrents to their activities were CCTV and alarm systems. But there are less expensive ways to help ensure you don’t get broken into.

The police offer the following advice for reducing the risk of burglary:
