Is It a Surprise Why So Many Homes and Business Are Burglared Every Single Day and Night - Make Sure You Are Not Next

Most of burglaries can very well be prevented. Two out of ten burglaries are committed by opportunist thieves that actually don't force their way into a property because they don't have to; a door or a window is left open.

London, Croydon November 13, 2004 -- The majority of burglaries are committed by opportunist thieves. Burglars don't like security deadlocks on doors and certainly don't like locked windows because breaking glass attracts attention. So check the security of your home against the following advice and strengthen vulnerable spots in your home's security as soon as possible. It does not cost much to improve the security of your home and buy peace of mind into the bargain.

Here are some simple yet important aspects for an effective home security:

Small windows
Even small windows like casement windows, skylights or bathroom fanlights need locks. A thief can get in through any gap larger than a human head.

Gates and fences
A high wall or fence at the back of a house can put off a burglar. Check for weak spots where a thief could get in. A thorny hedge along a boundary can also be a useful deterrent. Make sure the front of the house is still visible to passers by, so that a burglar can't work unseen.

Garages and sheds
Never leave a garage or garden shed unlocked, especially if it has a connecting door to the house. Lock tools and ladders away so that a thief cannot use them to break in.

Burglar alarm and decoy cameras
Visible burglar alarms and decoy (dummy cameras outside your property will make a burglar think twice. Easily installable wireless 'wire-free' alarms are now available whereby sensors fitted around the house transmit radio detection signals to a control system that triggers the alarm. Use these inexpensive devices to deter a burglar.

Spare keys
Never leave a spare key in a hiding place like under a doormat, in a flowerpot or inside the letterbox - a thief will look there first.

Good lighting can deter a thief. Some exterior lights have light sensors or an infra-red sensor that switches the light on for a short time when it detects something in its range. Sensors can be bought separately to convert an existing outdoor light into a security one.
