SECURETECH CHRISTMAS SECURITY TIPS TO KEEP YOU SAFE
The long-awaited Christmas holiday is here and most of us will be spending much of our time outside of our homes and workplaces to have fun with friends and families. But we can only have a memorable Christmas and New Year holidays if we come back to meet our homes and workplaces unbesmirched. So, keep your home, business, and belongings in safe hands this holiday season by following our Christmas security tips below:
Arm Your System
Remember to arm your security system every time you leave work or home. Christmas is a peak time for burglary, with opportunistic thieves on the look-out for all sorts of goodies. Never leave your property unguarded. Take necessary precautionary measures to keep it safe.

Update Your Stickers
Make sure thieves know your property is protected by updating your alarm stickers. Contact us if you require additional security upgrades by SecureTech or CCTV installation and stickers for your residence or commercial property.
Update Your Security Systems
Make sure your security systems are updated by SecureTech. Not only will this ensure the best chance of preventing break-ins, but it will also secure you a discount on any security system you purchase from us.
Be Careful About What You Post Online
It is always electrifying to share holiday memories, but avoid posting too much information about your travel plans and other sensitive activities on social media. The wrong people may find out you are away from home and take advantage of your absence.
Don’t Leave Signs You Are Away
Never leave trails or signs that you are away – if you are going to be away from home for a long period of time, ask a neighbour or a friend to check on your property, and remove spare keys from outside.
Let There Be Light
Installing automatic sensor lights at the front of your house is not only a great way to deter burglars, but it will also welcome guests to your front door.
Avoid Fire Hazards
Keep some lights on when you leave your house in the evening. But remember that decorative fairy lights outside and on the Christmas tree are a serious fire hazard, so save the festive display for when you are at home.
Hide Your Gift Boxes
Did you just buy a new flat-screen TV for Christmas? The box it came in will attract the attention of thieves just as much as the item itself. Conceal and dispose of boxes in your recycling carefully.
Keep Track of Your Shopping
Christmas is a busy time of year. With so much to organise, it’s easy to become distracted! Remember to keep track of your shopping bags when you’re doing your Christmas shopping.
Watch Your Belongings
It might be ‘Silly Season’, but remember to drink responsibly and keep an eye on your belongings when you are out at social events.
