Protect your home from unwelcome visitors!
With a couple of simple security measures, you can protect yourself from a break-in. Police investigations have found that over a third of all break-in attempts fail because the houses or flats are well secured. Thieves like to help themselves and disappear as quickly as they can. Most break-ins are carried out by opportunists who open poorly secured doors or windows with simple levering tools.
Here are some tips on how to protect yourself from a break-in:
- Security shutters by STOBAG provide your home with security from vandals. Burglars have no chance of getting into the house.
- Burglars target houses and flats that are not well secured.
- Mechanical safeguarding of doors and windows robs the burglar of valuable time and often leads to them giving up.
- Older windows with only simple fittings can be reconditioned by a specialist.
- A good additional lock with a sliding bolt on the front door protects you from uninvited guests.
- Windows should not be left open to any extent when the house is empty.
- Signs that the flat or house is unoccupied are to be avoided.
- Avoid closed curtains, overflowing mailboxes or telling messages on the answering machine like "We're on holiday." Have your mailbox emptied regularly.
- Have blinds go down or up and lights come on at irregular intervals (ask a friend or use a timer).
- Install an additional timer for the lights
