Home Security Checklist
Everything you need to keep your home safe and secure.
Alarm would-be thieves
The presence of an alarm system can help discourage potential criminals from targeting a property.
Knock, knock – who's there?
See, hear and speak to visitors from anywhere with a video doorbell. Get alerts and answer the door with your phone.
Lights on, no-one's home
Enjoy peace of mind while you're away. With smart lighting you can program your lights to turn on and off, so it looks like you're home.
Play it safe
Protect important valuables or papers with a fire-proof safe. Fasten it to the floor or wall so an intruder can't easily walk off with it.
Keep on top of what's going on
It's easy to keep an eye on your home while you're away with smart cameras that connect straight to your phone.
Light it up
Make sure your property is well lit, and that your garden is tidy, so burglars don't have anywhere to hide.
Lock it up
Store garden tools and ladders securely in your shed or garage, as these can be used to help thieves break into your home.
A touch of gravel
Putting in gravel paths around your house makes it harder for anyone to approach without you hearing them.
Alarmed & ready
You are twice as likely to die in a house fire that has no smoke alarm than a house that does. A smoke alarm should be fitted to each level of your home.
The best security blanket
More than half of accidental fires at home are started by cooking. Keep a fire blanket in the kitchen to quickly smother the fire and starve it of oxygen.
Left something on?
An estimated 650,000 UK house fires were caused by a beauty appliance being left on. With a smart plug, you can turn any appliance off with your phone.
