We all want to feel safe inside the homes we inhabit and content in the knowledge that our homes are secure when we’re away from them. For peace of mind, consider investing in CCTV and smart home security. Protect your home day or night by choosing an option with built-in night vision. Allowing you to monitor the goings-on in your home from wherever you are in the world, today’s smart options are packed with specialised features including person detection, alerts and HD livestreaming.
A simple security staple which will alert not just you but your neighbourhood too, burglar alarms are a must in any home and they’re great for protecting sheds or outbuildings as well. For extra safety, go for one with a panic button feature. Security lights are also an effective deterrent and the perfect practical addition to your garden or driveway. Many also have built-in motion sensors.
If you’re planning a holiday it’s not always practical to bring along all your valuables, so safes are the best places to leave things like your jewellery, keys or important documents. Combination lock options offer convenience and increased security. Meanwhile, if you’re looking to keep your luggage secure during your trip, you’ll need padlocks. Back at home, some convenient items to have on hand include plug timers, which enable you to specify when certain appliances turn on or off. Don’t keep your guests waiting; a Ring Doorbell or a wireless doorbell is another household must.
