Intruder Alarms – Frome

The Effectiveness of Intruder Alarms

Statistics show that homes without security measures in place are five times more likely to be burgled. This is why an increasing number of home owners in Frome, where there were 188 break-ins during 2016, are following the example of those in cities and bigger towns and opting to have intruder alarms installed.

A common misconception is that burglaries only occur at night. In fact, houses without a burglar alarm in Frome are vulnerable at any time.

Future Security Systems Ltd are at the forefront of installing and maintaining home security systems and have some sound advice:

There are some common sense security measures you should always take when you leave your home unoccupied – all of which are enhanced by having a burglar alarm system, preferably connected to a local response centre.

When you leave the house make sure doors and windows are securely locked (good window locks are vital especially on ground floor windows). Have good outside lighting and make sure a trustworthy neighbour keeps an eye on your house while you’re away.

Keep valuables out of sight so they don’t tempt opportunistic burglars, and leave a radio playing so it sounds as though someone is home.

Keep side gates to the back garden locked, and tools etc. securely stowed in a locked shed or storage box. It’s a good idea to chain bicycles to an immovable object.

Despite all your best efforts the only sure defence against intruders is to have an alarm system fitted by experienced professionals like Future Security Systems. Our alarm systems are pet-friendly, high tech with minimal false trigger incidents, discreet and easy to operate.

Homes with no security measures in place are five times more likely to be burgled than those with simple security measures. Good window locks and strong deadlocks can make a big difference.

Taking just a few steps can make a big difference in keeping your home safe from burglary. Here are a few tips:

  • Lock your doors and windows every time you leave the house, even when you're just out in the garden, remembering to double-lock UPVC doors (lift handle and turn key)
  • Hide all keys, including car keys, out of sight and away from the letterbox (remember a device could be used to hook keys through the letterbox)
  • Install a visual burglar alarm
  • Install good outside lighting
  • Get a trusted neighbour to keep an eye on your property
  • Leave radios or lights in your house on a timer to make the property appear occupied
  • Make sure the fences around your garden are in good condition
  • Secure bikes at home by locking them to an immoveable object inside a locked shed or garage
  • Keep ladders and tools stored away; don't leave them outside where they could be used to break into your home
  • Ensure side gates are locked to prevent access to the rear of the property
  • Ensure rear fencing is in good repair
  • Improve natural surveillance at the front of your property i.e. trim high hedges
  • Mark your property with postcode and house number and register your property for free with Immobilise(opens in a new window)
  • Consider joining or forming a Neighbourhood Watch scheme(opens in a new window)
  • Remove valuables from view of ground floor windows
  • Store any high value items (i.e. jewellery, passports) in a properly secured safe or bank vault
