Smart Security: How installers can make homeowners feel more secure

Published: 31 Jul 2023 ・ Read time: 4 mins
Smart Home Security is becoming more popular than ever in the UK. With the influx of break-ins over recent years, homeowners want to feel safer and more secure in their own homes. There were over 250,000 reports of a burglary in 2022, which in contrast is a 7% rise from 2021 in England and Wales alone.
Homeowners who have already invested in Smart Home Security Systems are already benefiting from 24-hour around-the-clock security, making their life more accessible, convenient, and secure. 
Nowadays, Installers can play a pivotal role in any new Smart Security installation, helping to protect customers and providing peace of mind by being on standby, ready to help if something goes wrong. 

Britain's Break-In Problem

Home security is paramount, as mentioned above. Over recent years, the number of break-ins that have been reported in the UK has continued to soar, with a whopping 7% rise from 2021 in London alone in the festive months. 
Contrary to popular belief, while a lot of break-ins can happen at night, it is, in fact, more common for break-ins to occur in broad daylight, usually in the afternoon when the property is practically empty while you are at work or running errands.
There are some standard practices you can do first to ward off intruders without the help of Smart Devices, such as;
  • Double-lock your windows are doors.
  • Removing keys from locks.
  • Use gravel on the driveway.
  • Avoid showing off new purchases.
