Moving home is equally an exciting but stressful time for the majority of us. With the large amount of things to do on the checklist, many people don't give the locks and the existing security of their new home the attention it deserves. Many homeowners incorrectly rank having a house alarm and/or CCTV as priorities when it comes to home security upon moving into a new home. Although these security products do have a place it is being proven constantly that they are not the deterrent they once were as burglars have evolved methods used to gain entry into our homes. CCTV and house alarms are designed to alert you that an intruder is in your home but sadly the modern day burglar is not put off by these security products. Correctly accredited locks are the first line of defence for your new home and should form the foundation of your home security.
Not only is this crucial to comply with insurance requirements but also for your own safety against any methods used by burglars to force entry into your home. It is extremely easy for a burglar to check externally if you do not have the correctly accredited locks and in many cases without the correctly accredited locks installed, a criminal can enter your home in a matter of seconds. Click here to quickly check what markings to look for on your locks to verify if they are to the required standard or not.
