Bad Tricks of the Trade Learned Online
It is becoming increasingly easier to gain access to certain information online and while for the most part this is certainly a good thing, it is becoming easier to find information on less legal practices online as well. Certain items such as lock picking devices, or even guides on how to pick locks with minimal tools, are also starting to gain popularity online.
It is important to be able to recognise common lock picking tools that could be used to gain entry into your home. There is also some wisdom in searching up your current security system and finding out if there are any flaws in its programming, no matter how small. The minute a product is hailed as ‘flawless’, thousands of people will attempt to disprove this claim and it only takes one smart-alec with a video camera to undo hundreds of pounds worth of work in securing your home.
When testing out the security of your current locks and entry systems, it is important to seek the help of a professional locksmith as they have firsthand experience of the success of various lock styles. They will be able to provide you with advice on what works and what doesn’t, giving you helpful information regarding the best security device for your home. Page Security makes sure that all our locksmiths remain up to date with the latest security technologies to ensure that we provide only the latest and most useful advice to our clients.
Are you at risk? What your door can say to potential thieves
Although crime levels are largely dependent on where you life, some aspect of the security of your home will be attributed to its design. If your home looks pretty easy to break into, thieves will certainly try. A strange example is that homes with a front porch are less likely to be broken into, as the front porch almost acts like an extra ‘layer’ to the security of the house, even if it is not lockable.
Doors with any sort of glass window, even a small window or a frosted glass front could also attract unwanted visitors. Although it may seem a good idea, anything that provides at least a small window into your home, particularly your front door, will need reinforcing using toughened or laminated glass panels. Thieves may look at a frosted glass front door and see an easy target, or they may even be able to look into your home and get a glimpse of what may lie beyond the door.
If you happen to have a wooden door, you will need to make sure that it is checked regularly as older wooden doors can fall victim to rot, particularly if you live in a humid or damp area. The world’s strongest lock will do little to protect a rotting door that is just hanging off its hinges. Wooden doors can be strengthened with galvanised hinges and heavy duty bolts, but make sure to check for signs of warping wood and rotting.
If you have frequent calls from unsolicited guests, it may be a good idea to install a link chain or a spy hole. This helps to protect you and your home from ‘door to door salesman’ and the like who may simply be scouting ahead for potential home targets.
Helpful Security Tips
With the assistance of professional locksmiths from Page Security you can secure your home against any intrusions, however it is important to remain aware of any tips or tricks that can be used to deter thieves. If there appears to be nothing much worth stealing, or if valuables are well hidden and appear innocuous, thieves will not waste time and effort attempting a break-in. Using these hints and tips may help prevent intrusion, sometimes by changing something as simple as where your keys are kept.
Installing a CCTV camera or some sort of security camera works well to guard your home against thieves and also serves to deter any potential thieves from attempting to break in. If they notice a wall-mounted camera, ordinary thieves will be far less likely to make an attempt and in some cases a simple motion detector is enough to deter thieves.
Be wary of where you keep your keys to the house. If your keys are hanging up on a little hanger or on a key rack and it is visible from the letterbox (or someone peering in through the letterbox) you could be putting yourself at risk. Keeping the keys out of sight in a locked cupboard, or even in a bowl where potential thieves will not see them will help to reduce the likelihood of your home being a target to intruders.
Letterboxes can also be a major factor in securing your home. While they are an essential part of our lives, the letterbox often provides a clear view into our home and it is easily accessible from the outside. Utilising a lockable front porch with its own letterbox will prevent thieves from being able to scout out the home location using the letterbox, or you can protect your letterbox using internal cover plates or bottomless letter baskets. Another top tip is to make sure that the letterbox is not situated too closely to the locking mechanism of a door.
