Hi - welcome to our new blog about home security.
It's amazing when you watch tv shows about home security - you know, the ones which show ex-burglars wandering round a street, identifying the homes which they think are most vulnerable. They assess the potential of each house by the state of repair of the outside. If the garden gate's falling to bits, the windows look unkempt, the fence is falling down, they instantly recognise that there's an invitation to burgle and that you're likely to be equally careless with your valuable property.
Over the next few weeks, we're going to give you tips and tricks to make your home look the least vulnerable in your street - sending the burglars on to the next house along. Not so nice for your neighbors but you will be protecting your precious personal belongings.
