SUMMER SECURITY TIPS 2022


Break-in's increase during the summer. Use our checklist to keep the odds in your favour.


☐ 1. SHARE INFORMATION 

  • Create a WhatsApp group and let your neighbours know if there is unusual activity or crime on your block.
  • Join your local Neighbourhood Group on Facebook and learn about recent activities.
    eg: Stonebridge Neighbourhood Watch
  • Share video and images from your doorbell camera or security cameras.
  • Share information with the Police as it may help with an arrest.




☐ 2. 
DO NOT ADVERTISE YOU ARE AWAY

  • Ask all strangers for identification. The person who is “lost” and looking for directions could actually be a burglar checking to see if someone is home.
  • DO NOT advertise on Facebook or Instagram that you are travelling. You may think you’re letting your friends and family know you’re having a great time, but people often forget to change their privacy settings. If you like to post photos - post them after you get back.





☐ 3. KEEP YOUR DOORS AND WINDOWS LOCKED

  • Many burglars go door to door looking for targets that forgot to lock their front doors and car doors. Make sure all doors and windows are locked.
  • If you lose a key get the locks changed.
  • A better alternative is to eliminate keys altogether by installing an Alarm.com smart lock with built in keypad.
  • Install monitored door and window sensors.
  • When your security system is "armed" an instant alert is sent to your smartphone and our 24/7 Monitoring Stations
  • Some properties may require security roll shutters to keep intruders out

 




☐ 4. GET PROPER LIGHTING 

  • Burglars target unoccupied homes so keep your home well lit at night.
  • Install exterior motion lights that turn on when there is movement.
  • Install timers that turn lights, radios and televisions on at different times. This gives the appearance that someone is home. 
  • A better option is to install Alarm.com smart lights and smart appliance modules and setup on an alternating schedules.





☐ 5. INSTALL A SMART SECURITY SYSTEM
