As home security experts in Cambridgeshire, we are often asked if homeowners need a home security device. There are lots of things to consider when thinking about a home security device. We walk you through some of these things in this blog post.
There are lots of different home security devices available. For example, simple outdoor lighting works as a deterrent. It also makes it easier and safer for you when you are going out or coming home in the dark. The outdoor lighting will light up the path for you, so you feel safe and secure.
Generally speaking, there are two main options when it comes to outdoor lighting as a deterrent. You could opt for low level lighting or motion sensor lighting. Low level lighting will automatically switch on from dusk until dawn. Meanwhile, a motion sensor light will switch on when it senses movement. Both lighting options work well at deterring potential thieves from breaking into your home. This is because they prefer to work under the cover of darkness.
Visible burglar alarms are an excellent home security device too. A potential burglar will see your burglar alarm. This will often be enough to deter them. Burglars look for an easy target. By showing you have a burglar alarm you are showing that you are not an easy target.
If you’re considering installing a burglar alarm, we would recommend that you speak to your neighbours and see what they are using. Give our team a call and we can recommend the best intruder alarm for your home too.
Once the burglar alarm has been installed make sure you call your insurance company. Many home insurance companies will offer a lower premium if you have additional security devices installed. This includes home security devices such as security lighting and intruder alarms, but also CCTV cameras.
