How to be more security aware at Christmas
Don’t leave goods on show
Leaving curtains wide open whilst you are out and a mound of presents under the tree is just advertising the fact you have a whole host of treats in your home. Do shut your blinds or keep your gifts out of sight. It just takes a little thought to do this but it could make all the difference to you having a happy and safe Christmas.
How to be more security aware at Christmas? Consider a security camera
Home security cameras, surveillance & wireless ip cameras can all secure and monitor whilst you are not there. This brings both peace of mind and a good level of protection. Time2 security cameras come in a range of options, both indoor and outdoor and with a myriad of different technologies. Wiring and installation can put people off installing security camera but these WiFi ip cameras are extremely simple to set up. There really is no expertise has required These plug and play wireless security camera systems only need a power source and a WiFi connection. You can be up and running in no time
Don’t advertise that you are out on social media – the key to how to be more security aware at Christmas
You absolutely do not want to boast on social media how you have the new iPhone…or that everything is wrapped and under the tree and you will be back to open it in a few more days. The internet is a wide-open space and many people have access to the information you share there. Do not give would-be burglars the heads up that you have stuff to steal. If you want to share a trip you have taken with photos do so AFTER you have returned home, making it clear you are now back. Likes are not worth the risk!
