Bad Tricks of the Trade Learned Online
Nowadays if a question remains unanswered, a general solution is to ‘Google it’. We rely so much on the plethora of information from the worldwide web that books and libraries may soon become redundant. With so many ‘how to’s, tutorials and detailed guides on painting a shed, curing the common cold, losing weight and more, it is not surprising that you can also find information on practices that are not quite legal. One such instance would be an example of how to easily pick a lock using a hairpin or other commonly found items within the household.
There may even be websites found online that sell lock picking devices for use on specific security systems, or how to bypass certain CCTV systems, making it easier for thieves to enter and leave undetected. The minute a product is announced that is ‘flawless’ or ‘pick-proof’, hundreds upon hundreds of individuals will see this as a challenge and immediately go about proving these claims wrong. It is therefore important that you learn to identify these lock picking methods, or at least the tools used so that you can find a security system that suits you.
By enlisting the help of a professional locksmith at Page Security, we can provide essential advice and assistance in choosing the perfect security system. It could be incredibly frustrating conducting hours of research on a particular security system, only to find out that a certain technique could render the lock useless within 30 seconds. As experts in our field, we can recommend the best security systems for the Burgess Hill area and we will install your new security system to ensure client satisfaction.
Are you at risk? What your door can say to potential thieves
Although risk levels are largely dependent on the area in which you live, thieves can target a particular ‘type’ of house, as certain houses will appear more vulnerable than others. A large factor of this is your front door, as it provides the main window into your home. Front doors with plain or even frosted glass often appear more inviting, as they can be easily broken into. Even small windows can seem a little unnecessary in a front door, so it is better to go without, or buy strengthened or laminated glass panels.
A front porch also provides a layer of protection when deterring thieves, as certain front porches can be lockable, which ensures that people cannot look into your home through the letterbox. A door without a letterbox may be another solution, with a separate letterbox placed beside the door to collect post. Letterboxes can be used to glean information about the houses’ interior, as they are often not locked or covered, so moving your letterbox may be a good solution for deterring thieves.
The strength and material of your door is also a key factor when scouting out for potential ‘targets’. Wooden doors can appear foreboding, but it is important to make sure that they are well maintained and not warping or rotting. The strongest hinges and bolts imaginable are pretty much useless if the door itself is rotting away. uPVC doors provide excellent security solutions as there are normally two or three locks built into the mechanism of the door. However they are also inflexible and are not built to support additional locks, so it is important to bear this in mind when considering a uPVC door.
Helpful Security Tips
By staying smart and safe at home you can help to reduce the risk of being targeted by thieves. Installing a security camera or a motion sensor will serve to deter thieves from attempting a break-in, as anything that alerts others to their presence or records a situation would pose a threat to their operation. In some cases the CCTV camera need not even work, the mere presence of it could be enough to deter thieves.
Keeping your keys out of sight is essential, as key hangers or key racks that are visible from the letterbox or outside windows are obvious targets. If a thief can see and potentially access keys, they will be more likely to take a risk on that home. Keep them locked away or out of sight for safety.
While our letterboxes are essential, they also provide an unwarranted ‘window’ into our homes. Providing adequate covering for the letterbox is a smart move, use internal cover plates or even bottomless wire letter baskets that prevent people from using the letterboxes to reach in and unlock the front door. It is also important that any letterboxes installed in existing doors are not installed near the locking mechanism of the door.
