Holidays are meant to be relaxing, but do you have peace of mind about the safety of your property whilst you’re away?
Posting beach pictures and checking into your destination online may seem the perfect way to share your holiday with friends and family, but it may alert criminals that your home is empty. We live in a world where social media is everywhere, making communication quicker and more accessible than ever before. Yet these communication tools benefit criminals too; they have more access to your information. Showing you are on holiday on social media makes you a target for theft, it is said that 1 in 20 burglaries happen when the occupants are on holiday. With the increasing rate of break-ins in areas of Yorkshire, it is more critical than ever to protect your home.
At Norcroft Energy, we believe protecting the things that matter to you is essential. Letting everyone know you’re away has been cautioned by police and can even invalidate your home insurance, so it is better to be safe than sorry. We would advise you to think before you post and ensure your security settings are only permitting people you trust to view things about you. You wouldn’t leave your windows open, so why do the same with your social media?
Yet protecting your online presence is only part of the solution, deterring these unwanted visitors in real life is just as important. Home security systems can reassure you that you are not only protected in the event of a break-in, but that intruders are deterred from entering in the first place.
Security alarm system and CCTV camera systems are very popular with our customers and they are an effective worry-free solution, you can even monitor them from the beach! Their wireless connectivity means you can check them remotely, wherever you are. They have a built-in sensor that can detect motion and shine a spotlight on the person or animal creating the motion, with the sensitivity being able to be adjusted to reflect the surroundings.
We can install security systems including intruder alarms, CCTV, security lighting, door access and video door access, helping to keep your property safe and secure.
