So you have bought a new home, but who else may have a key to your new purchase, What about the Alarm Code!!
The first thing you should look into doing, replace all the locks.
The chances of the previous occupiers having a key still are slim. But not a chance you want to take.
Get in Contact for locks replacements.
If you are not 100% sure that you have received all the codes and Prox tags ( if used) or simply were not handed a code for the alarm, we can help.
We can default the Alarm so all codes are as factory, we can then set the alarm up for how you would like to use it.
Do check that they have cancelled any previous agreements with the Alarm Company they were using.
One of the best deterrents of burglary is CCTV after having an Intruder Alarm fitted.
Not only will it help keep your new property secure, you can even see were that missing Parcel actually went!!
OUT BUILDINGS, GARAGES & SHEDS
These are prime targets for prospective Burglars.
How secure are they currently? You can fit Intruder Alarms & CCTV to outbuildings as either stand alone or part of the house system.
Door locks and windows can be made extra secure too.
GET TO KNOW YOUR NEIGHBOURS
