Watch Systems wish you a happy Valentine’s Day, whether you’re treating a loved one by booking up your favourite restaurant, or having a romantic trip to the cinema, be cautious and don’t let your home become vulnerable.
Valentine’s Day is one day where crimes increase annually. Aviva, an insurance company have collected data over a 10 year period and have revealed that burglaries increase by 9% on Valentine’s Day (February 14th ) compared to the daily average. On top of that car theft increases by 12% on this day, of love and well wishes.
While you and your loved one are staring into the sunset, houses are usually left unoccupied with expensive gifts left on show – giving thieves more opportunities to break in.
To ensure you’re not another Valentine’s statistic, follow our simple steps:
Make sure windows and doors are closed, locked and secure.
Invest in outdoor security lights with motion sensors. These work as great deterrents.
Leave lamps on, giving the sense that somebody is home.
Ensure you have a security alarm in place. The bell box alone can work to discourage unwanted trespassers.
Install a CCTV system to keep an eye on the things you love.
Watch Systems are on hand, to help you stay secure this Valentine’s Day!
