Advice for Securing Your Garden Against Intruders
At Banham Security we offer a wide range of effective security measures for securing your home against intruders. However, it is essential that you do not neglect your garden when considering domestic security.
The key here is visibility. If the front of the house is clearly visible from the road it will prevent intruders accessing the property unseen.
Ensure gates, fences, walls and hedges at the front of your property are no more than one metre high and keep trees and shrubs pared back to avoid them providing effective cover for burglars.
A clearly visible intruder alarm will often be enough to deter a potential criminal – call us on 020 7622 5151 to arrange a free on-site survey.
The back garden of a property is a popular entry point for intruders as they are often in darkness and well secluded.
Make sure gates and fences are difficult to scale either because of their height or design.
A Banham Security CCTV camera is an ideal way of monitoring your back garden and providing genuine peace of mind.
Garden Sheds & Equipment
There are two reasons you want to avoid allowing easy access to gardening/DIY equipment. First of all, expensive equipment and tools that are left unsecured or in easily accessible garden sheds will not be passed up by thieves.
Secondly, these tools could be used against your property as a means to force entry. Always lock them away securely and remove anything valuable from a shed if you think that an intruder will be able to break into it.
