It’s October, the clocks have just gone back and it’s dark outside. Just the right time of year to be taking a few extra precautions with your personal and home safety.
Check your locks! Are they up to standard and working properly; time to get that job done you’ve been putting off over the summer. At Keyway Locks we carry a comprehensive range of security products to replace or upgrade your security to comply with current insurance requirements. Doors and windows need to be checked as do outbuildings. Final exit doors should have a BS3621 or equivalent lock fitted and all lower floor windows should have key operated locks fitted, as should any accessible from ground level.
Consider external lighting. PIR sensor lighting that detect heat and movement on your property are a significant deterrent to anyone skulking in the shadows.
What about an electronic peephole door viewer? Traditional spyhole viewers have limited range and angle and it’s easy to hide. Electronic viewers can even capture an image of the person at the door, some can record all visitors who have rung the door bell while you were out. We can fit this type of device to most door, including UPVc.
