- Make sure your doors and windows are locked at all times, even when indoors. You might not hear an opportunist thief even if you are at home.
- Consider using external, motion activated security lights, or indoor lights on a timer switch while you are away from the house.
- Do not leave valuable items on display. Consider hanging some net curtains or blinds on your windows to obstruct easy viewing from outside.
- Make sure your insurance cover is suitable for your needs, and ensure your locks are British Standard insurance approved, otherwise your insurance could be invalid if you need to make a claim.
