(PRWEB UK) 6 December 2012
Intruderalarmpanels.co.uk, retailers of burglar and intruder alarm systems, have released a new blog offering their readers Christmas security tips and giving them valuable advice on how to keep their homes safe and secure over the Christmas period.
Christmas time is an enjoyable part of the year for most people. However, not taking the right precautions can leave a home owner vulnerable to theft. During this festive period peoples homes become well stocked with expensive presents that they have purchased to give their loved ones.
The latest blog post at http://www.intruderalarmpanels.co.uk highlights areas such as keeping your tree and presents out of sight of the outside world and how to dispose of your packaging once Christmas day has past.
“...Keep your Christmas trees away from windows or out of sight: remember, if someone knows where your Christmas tree is, and let's face it, they are not always inconspicuous, then there is a good chance they know where all your presents are too. If your only option is to keep your tree somewhere that can be seen from the outside world then try to keep your presents somewhere secure until they are needed...”
“...Be discrete: When disposing of packaging try to take it to a recycling point. If this is not an option for you then make sure that when you put your rubbish out for collection you do so as near to the collection time as possible. Try to conceal the labelling on the packaging to ensure you are not advertising the contents of your home to passers by.”
A spokesperson from Intruder Alarm Panels says “Christmas is a magical time, but it can leave you vulnerable. Here at Intruder Alarm Panels we are able to offer advice to people to ensure that they have the necessary information to keep themselves, their families and their possessions safe over the Christmas period. After all, what is Christmas without presents!”
