Summer Security Tips for your home from Banham

At Banham Security, we are committed to providing you with the best security solutions for your home and business.

Summer Security Tips

We know that summer can bring some unique challenges and opportunities for security, so we have prepared some tips and advice to help you protect what matters most.

Secure your windows and doors

Summer is a great time to let some fresh air in, but don’t forget to lock your windows and doors when you leave your home or office. Burglars often look for easy entry points so always take care when you’re in the garden or leave the house to ensure you’re not making it easy for opportunistic thieves to enter your home or take belongings left near window ledges. Window locks as well as grilles, gates and shutters are a great way to protect against unwanted intruders or other pests, especially as the weather heats up.

Install outdoor lighting and cameras

Outdoor lighting and security cameras can deter intruders and provide evidence in case of a break-in. You can use motion-activated lights and cameras to save energy and capture relevant footage. Use the Banham Smart Security app or our best-in-class monitoring services to control and keep an eye on your security.

Check your security system

Summer is a good time to check your security system and make sure it’s working properly. You can test your alarms, sensors, cameras, and batteries to ensure they are functioning as expected. You can also update your contact information and emergency response plan with us at any time. If you need any assistance or have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Enjoy your holiday with peace of mind

If you are planning to travel this summer, you can rest assured that Banham Security will keep an eye on your property while you are away. Our Alarm and CCTV monitoring services ensure that your property is monitored 24/7, 365 days a year, whilst our Keyholding and Alarm Response service offers routine checks, a professional response to alarm activations as well as a huge selection of routine tasks from plant watering to removing post.

Be social media savvy

Be careful about what you share on social media. Posting pictures or updates of your holiday can alert potential burglars that your home is empty. You can either wait until you return to share your memories or adjust your privacy settings to limit who can see your posts.

Don’t forget fire security

Summer can be a busy time for fire and emergency services. To avoid fires, follow some simple steps like installing smoke alarms systems and fire extinguishers, disposing of cigarettes safely, and avoiding open fires such as barbeques near dry vegetation. Our alarm monitoring services also cover fire alarms so if you’re away from home you can enjoy ultimate peace of mind knowing that your home is always protected.
