When you consider your home security measures it is not only the doors and windows that you should be thinking about. Outdoor security should also play a big role in improving the overall security of your property. This is why our team at Alcatraz – Edinburgh Locksmiths have put together this guide on the best outdoor security measures you can implement at your property.
Having a high level of security both inside and outside of your home is an asset to any homeowner. By implementing these outdoor security tips you will be able to achieve the best level of security to protect your home and family.
Outdoor Security Measures:
- High Fence/Gate
- Secure Locks on Garages/Sheds and Outbuildings
- Keep Bushes and Shrubs Under Control
- Outdoor Lighting
- Keep Valuables Locked Away
- Use Blinds and Curtains
- Lock Away Garden Equipment and Tools
It is not vital that you go out and implement all of these measures at once just do it gradually as and when your budget allows. Some measure on the list involves no cost so you can work on these straight away such as closing blinds so that people can’t see in and keeping the garden neat and tidy. One of the most important measures mentioned on this list is the gate/fence. This is a good place to start as once installed large fences and gates act as a huge deterrent to burglars as it is an extra hurdle to overcome before even attempting to gain entry to your property.
