Getting your ‘big coat’ out and planning your Christmas shopping are usually at the top of everyone’s winter prep list, but have you considering improving your home security? Winter is the time of the year when securing your home is more important than ever. In Manchester, winter’s extended and darker nights provide ample opportunities for criminals to break in and steal your hard-earned and sentimental valuables. This makes securing your home with Manchester CCTV more pivotal than ever.
But don’t worry, the Manchester CCTV experts, Nova Alarms, are here to help you fortify your house and deter criminals from entering your home. Here’s a list of 5 ways you can make your home winter ready.
Installing CCTV systems acts as a powerful deterrent against criminals. The visible presence of cameras around the property signals to potential intruders that the premises are monitored, making them think twice before attempting a break-in.
Manchester CCTV specialists Nova Alarms offer state-of-the-art CCTV installation services to dramatically increase your home or business security. They have various benefits, including 5 Megapixel IP Anti-Vandal Dome Cameras, two-way talk facilities through a mobile app, and full-colour day & night vision.
“To be forewarned is to be forearmed” if an intruder surprises you and your family, they have the advantage and can use your shock as a weapon of terror whilst stealing your valuables. With Nova Alarm’s external sensors, you can detect intruders before they break in, denying any would-be intruder the opportunity of surprise.
These detectors, easily installable to any solid structure, are pet friendly and can be added to almost any existing alarm system. They are crucial in alerting homeowners and neighbours by picking up any motion when the alarm is set, preventing any potential breach.
Utilising smart alarms is crucial in maintaining a secure home, offering homeowners much-needed peace of mind. These intelligent systems, often accompanied by user-friendly apps, allow users to monitor and control their home security remotely, ensuring their home’s safety even when they are miles away.
Our Nova Alarms App is user-friendly and free of ongoing costs. Contrary to common misconceptions, gaining access to such advanced features does not necessitate a completely new alarm system; a simple swap of your main control panel and/or remote keypad can integrate your existing wired alarm system with our app, offering complete control and ease of use.
Installing motion sensor lighting has two major advantages; firstly, the sudden burst of light can disrupt and startle would-be intruders. Secondly, whilst night-vision camera technology has greatly improved over the years, it’s still much better to film a lit area, capturing much clearer footage. After all, CCTV cameras are a powerful deterrent; if the worst happens and your home is broken into, you want as high-quality footage as possible to pass on to the police.
Whilst it’s not nice to think about it, it’s always important to be prepared for the worst. As such, we recommend coordinating with your neighbours, turning your local area into a veritable fortress against criminals. Additionally, by fostering good communication with your neighbours, you can share information and footage regarding suspicious activities, helping enhance your security network.
Finally, neighbours are also essential to any holiday security preparations. Many people like to go on holiday in winter to escape some of the cold weather. By establishing good relationships with your neighbours and building a security-minded community, you can all help minimise the risks of leaving your home unattended by helping each other to present the illusion that your houses are occupied.
Ensuring your home is secure during the winter months should be a priority for everyone. You can significantly enhance your home security by incorporating advanced solutions such as CCTV cameras, outdoor detectors, and intruder alarms with the Nova Alarms App.
