With winter around the corner, and the nights drawing in, this is the time of year when your home or business is most at risk! The office of national statistics has said that come winter, there is a 22.8% increase in office break-ins and a 35% increase in home insurance claims as a result of a burglary.
The increase in crime rate throughout winter is mostly due to two factors. Longer, darker nights, and the increase in demand for goods in the build-up to Christmas.
There are many different steps that you can take in order to keep your home or business safe this winter. Some of these options are:
Motion sensors, often used with outdoor lighting, can provide improved safety, security and energy efficiency. They stay off until they detect motion, such as someone coming up a driveway to your front door, then turn on and light the area.
Burglar alarm systems are the most effective way to protect your home and can provide peace of mind for any homeowner. You can leave the house or sleep knowing that your loved ones, pets and possessions are protected at all times.
A home security camera system is an excellent tool for home protection, and it can work both as a deterrent and a recovery tool. Burglars are deterred by properties with visible security cameras. However, if a crime were to occur, security cameras can help gather evidence.
Smart doorbells are one of the most popular smart home technology items currently available, with popular brands including Nest and Ring. They are an added layer of security to secure your property which enables you to keep an eye on who is coming and going and check in on package deliveries.
As the nights draw in, there is no better time to upgrade your flood lights to a Pyronix LightCamera set-up. Equipped with dual motion detection lights, they produce a powerful combined brightness of 2500 lumens to illuminate your property and deter any potential intruders.
No matter where you are, you can watch live and recorded videos from your smart device.
All from the same app that controls your entire Pyronix security system.
