Your Home is a Castle – Here’s How To Make It Just As Safe
the possibility of break-ins in the middle of the night or while you’re out at work.
This blog post focuses on 5 ways you can settle that worry. All you have to do is take a few extra steps to make sure your home – and everything in it – is as safe as can be.
1. Secure your doors and windows.
A properly secured set of doors and windows, more than anything else, is an excellent deterrent for would-be thieves. Make sure you’ve got at least three locks on your front and back doors, and reinforce your windows.
Here at Loch Leven, we pride ourselves on the quality of our secure Double Glazed windows, and our aesthetically beautiful, reinforced doors. Our aim: Security Without Compromise.

2. Install security alarms
Probably the ultimate deterrent for a would-be thief is the all-mighty security alarm.
Having alarms set up for your front and back doors (and windows) is slightly more expensive than just another set of locks, but they’re a hell of a lot more likely to put off anyone thinking about breaking in while you’re away. An experienced thief will recognise the alarm and promptly move along!
For maximum security, you’ll want to change the code every few weeks.
3. Install front and back door sensor lighting
It’s safe to say that everyone has, at some point, been startled by a light unexpectedly coming on as they walk up to a door – even if they are expecting it!
If sensor lighting can have that effect on us well-meaning folk, then you can be sure its going to set a thief’s get-away plan in motion.
Having sensor lights at the entryways to your property is a sure fire way to put off a burglar, as well as illuminating your front door for the friendlier guests.
4. Keep the ground floor secure.
An open ground floor window is like an invitation, even during the day. Make sure you don’t leave them open enough to climb through – most new windows these days come with a restricted opening function that lets the air in, but nothing else.

5. Make it more difficult to get in.
Above all, just don’t make it easy for them. Handy ladders, open windows, garden tools lying around… the more secure and safe you make your house look from the outside, the less likely an intrepid burglar is to try to get inside.
