Whether you’re buying or renting, the majority of Brits tend to only purchase security devices once you or someone you know has been the victim of theft, as opposed to buying products to prevent an incident occurring. As a result, National Home Security Month (NHSM) is back to change this habit and make your new house a home.
The initiative, sponsored by security specialist Yale, is designed to create awareness around the importance of home security to homeowners across the UK. Returning for its fourth consecutive year, National Home Security Month is back to battle break-ins, providing homeowners across the UK with the latest home security tips and advice.
Throughout October, each week focuses on a different area of home security covering:
