Keeping your home safe this summer

The weather is warming up and the days are getting longer. For many of us, this means we’ll soon be jetting off on a well-earned summer holiday. This also means homes will be left empty for weeks on end, making them an easy target for break-ins.

However, there are plenty of steps you can take to help secure your property and put your mind at ease while away. Try not to post your travel plans on social media and cancel any regular deliveries like newspapers. It’s also a good idea to let neighbours know you won’t be home and ask them to collect your mail and to keep an eye out for any suspicious behaviour.

Then, of course, there is the extra security you can only get from installing a CCTV camera.

For some more simple and easy home security measures, you can put in place, check out the below guide from Sainsbury’s Bank – Money Matters. It’s full of handy tips and strategies anyone can implement to protect their home, inside and out.
