Advice from Locksmiths in Eastern Suburbs
Posted on 10th, May 2018
The times today are far too treacherous for you to be living in a carefree way at your place without taking proper security measures. No matter how safe the neighbourhood may seem, the burglars will always know if your house is the one without any security systems protecting it from them.
Here is a list of things that you might be doing that make your home or office a potential target:
Avoiding Regular Maintenance
Sometimes, people tend to have their security systems installed and presume themselves safe for a very long time. While they may be safer now, there are always chances that the security system has withered over time or is not working because of some other reason like, electrical fluctuation or improper installation.
Therefore, it is best to give your security system regular maintenance checks so that you are not robbed in your sleep even after spending all that money on a security system. Once the security system is installed, you could also test that it works yourself or have it properly checked by NJ’s Locksmiths.
Do not advertise when you are not home
It is not wise to advertise your absence when you are away on a vacation or trip. Sometimes, you tend to give too many people the information related to your vacation’s duration or discuss it openly while sitting in a public place. What you don’t realise is that there might be anyone in the crowd, listening in on your conversation and thus, marking your house as a potential target for a burglary.
Excessive social media sharing also leads to pretty much the same results. If you can use Facebook, so can a burglar, and he might be keeping track of your statuses that you share about your vacation details.
Keep all those doors and windows locked
If you live in a spacious house with a lot of ways into your house then it is probably unwise to leave the windows and doors of the house that are vacant or not in use, unlocked. The burglars tend to keep a very close watch on their targets before they rob it. They make sure they are aware of the routine, the entrances, the exits etc. Thus, it is wise to keep all of these locked unless it is absolutely mandatory that you have to open them.
