Did you know that at the beginning of summer most people move or sell their house? Or have you recently purchased rental accommodation that you would like to secure? It is very important to ensure that your new property is protected to the maximum, for your family, or for your future tenants!
Home security is a subject that concerns us all, but on which we do not dwell enough. Fortunately, you no longer need to worry about being safe at home! We’ve created a list of helpful safety tips, to assure all new homeowners that their home is fully equipped to protect the people and things they care about.
Change the locks on your new home
What is the first step when moving in? Change the locks! The previous owners probably gave spare keys to many people who needed them. This means that when you move in, you have no idea who has the keys to your house. Changing the locks can take your time, but it’s essential, so why not use this opportunity to have smart locks installed?

Keep your doors constantly closed
Did you know that it is important to keep your doors constantly closed, even when you are at home? There is nothing simpler and safer to protect your family.
Don’t leave your keys lying around anymore
We’ve all come home after a big day, and thoughtlessly throwing our keys at the first piece of furniture we find on entering. But leaving your keys within sight makes your home an easy target for burglars, and your valuables are at risk of being stolen. Keeping your keys in a safe place is an easy way to counter this, but wouldn’t it be even easier if you didn’t have any physical keys left?
Invest in a quality alarm system
Buying a house is the perfect opportunity to think about its security. Why not take advantage of this opportunity to equip your home with a connected alarm !
