Some security tips
GENERALLY SPEAKING
  • Always lock your windows and your doors, even when you are out for a short time. Do not forget to close the garage.
  • If you are absent in the evening, leave a light on and close your curtains.
  • Do not put valuables in a visible place.
  • Do not drop your keys in an obvious place, such as below a doormat, in a flower pot or in the letterbox.
  • The garden should be neat. Garden furniture and ladders can be useful to burglars. Prune your hedges or your bushes so that burglars can be spotted more quickly.
IN TERMS OF PHYSICAL SECURITY
  • Your doors and windows must be equipped with good locks.
  • If you are away for an extended period, leave some lights on, possibly by means of a timer.
  • Check that outdoor lighting really covers all the places where burglars have easy access to your home.
  • Effective measures for physical security can delay burglars, and thus, increase the chances of their being caught.

ELECTRONIC SECURITY MEASURES
  • Consider purchasing an approved alarm system. Such a system scares off burglars, and reports any attempted burglary.
  • A good alarm system is self-protected. This means that in case of sabotage, a message is sent to the alarm processing centre.
  • The stickers on windows indicating that the home is electronically protected act as a deterrent.
  • A subscription to an alarm centre helps ensure optimal monitoring in case of problems. When the alarm is triggered the alarm processing centre is notified immediately.
