Step by Step Instructions

1 Security cameras
2 Install deadbolts
3 Window alarms
4 Security stickers
  • Step 1. Security cameras

    Security cameras are a good way to keep an eye on your home 24 hours a day. You can install them yourself and there’s a wide variety to choose from. Many come with a DVR and an app that lets you view your footage remotely. Alternatively, an imitation dome camera is another way of looking after your home. It looks like the real thing, is easy to install and has a red flashing light to help deter intruders.
  • Step 2. Install deadbolts

    Deadbolts or deadlocks are stronger than a normal door lock, making it harder to break into your home and they’re easy to install. For extra piece of mind, you can also get deadbolts for your windows, sash windows and sliding doors.
  • Step 3. Window alarms

    Window alarms are an easy way to know if someone is trying to force their way into your home. They detect vibrations, which sets off a loud alarm. An adhesive strip on the back of the alarm makes them simple to install.
  • Step 4. Security stickers

    Many home security devices come with security stickers that can also act as an effective visual deterrent. Make sure you place them in highly visible places around your home.
