CCTV – Keeping Your Home Safe Over the Summer

Are you heading away on holiday for the summer? After a difficult year, we all deserve a relaxing break this summer with time to unwind. Your home security is the last thing you want to worry about while you’re away. One of the best ways to protect your home and belongings is to have home security cameras installed.

Home Security Cameras

Don’t worry if you still need to get home security cameras, as the CCTV camera system installation process can be very easy. Armstrong Security can help you the entire way, from deciding where the best places for your cameras are, to picking the right camera system, and getting the cameras installed for you.

Great burglary deterrent

Home security cameras are great for a number of reasons. First and foremost, they provide a strong deterrent for potential criminals. If an opportunistic burglar sees a security camera, they are much less likely to attempt a break-in. People are a lot less brave when they know there will be video footage of their attempted break-in, making them all the more likely to be caught.

Peace of mind
Not only do home security cameras make your home safer, but they also help give you peace of mind. Make relaxing even easier for yourself this summer. CCTV security systems can give you 24/7 coverage of your home, all from your smartphone. It’s like taking your home to the beach with you this summer.

If you notice something wrong, Armstrong Security is available 24/7 for emergencies all summer long. You can have one of our professionals check your property without you even needing to leave the beach.

Additional tips
In addition to home security cameras, there are lots of other quick and easy ways to ensure your home stays safe while you are away for the summer.

Lock your windows and doors
It is important to make sure you lock all windows and doors. Up to a third of all break-ins occur when doors and windows have been left unlocked. And so although this tip may seem obvious, it’s important to double-check before you go away.

Stop your mail
Turning off your mail while you are away is an easy way to keep your home safer over the summer while you are away. When newspapers and letters pile up in your letterbox, it is a telltale sign that your house is empty, making it a prime candidate for a break-in. Stopping your mail is a quick and easy way to fix this.

Have someone look after your place
If you’re going away for a long time, ask a trusted friend to look after your place. You can get a friend or relative to stay in your home while you are away so that it’s not left unattended. If you can’t find anybody to look after your home, you could ask a trusted neighbour to keep an eye out for your property.
