As the days grow shorter and the nights longer, home security becomes a pressing concern. It’s no secret that burglaries tend to rise with the diminishing daylight, as would-be intruders see an opportunity to break into homes undetected.
This awareness is shared by a majority of British residents, with 76.5% of us expressing heightened concern about the safety of our homes during the autumn months. A survey conducted by security experts, ADT, sheds light on this growing unease. Despite this increased vigilance, burglary rates remain dishearteningly high in many areas of the country.
To underscore the importance of taking proactive measures to secure your home, October is designated as National Home Security Month, an annual campaign initiated in 2013.
