According to the Home Office, there has been a 49% increase in the total rate of crime across England and Wales since April 2014 – with London being one of the hardest-hit cities. In 2019, London recorded over 772,000 incidents of crime, the highest in a decade.

Home Security Tips

Home security is an important consideration for all homeowners. To protect your home and family, here are some tips on how to improve your home security:

  • Invest in a professionally designed and installed intruder alarm system. Cycad Security can help you with this, providing tailored designs to meet the needs of any property or budget.
  • Make sure your windows and doors are secure, using strong locks and deadbolts.
  • Install motion-sensor lighting outside your home – this can act as a deterrent for would-be burglars and thieves.
  • Ensure any spare keys to your property are hidden in a safe place where they cannot be found easily.
  • Regularly check for signs of forced entry or tampering with your security systems.
  • Make sure to keep doors and windows closed when you are not at home, and whenever possible, use timers on lights and other electrical appliances.
  • Consider investing in CCTV cameras to monitor activity around your property. Cycad Security can provide advice and installation services for CCTV systems.

By following these tips, you can help ensure your home is secure and protected against intruders and burglars.

Intruder Alarms

Installing an intruder alarm system can be one of the most effective ways to deter criminals from entering your property. Home alarm systems are designed to detect any signs of forced entry or unauthorised access, and can alert the police when an intruder is detected. Homeowners should also consider installing CCTV cameras around their home to monitor activities on their property and to help identify any intruders.

Access Control

Homeowners may also consider investing in access control systems such as keyless entry systems or automated door locks to control who has access to their property. This can help keep intruders out while also providing an added layer of security for the homeowner and their family.
