With the increase in break-ins we really need to be vigilant and take proper precautions to keep the burglars at bay. The days are long gone when we could leave our homes unlocked whilst we were out, but irrespective of that, many break-ins take place during daylight and quite often when we are home.
The gardai tell us that many break-ins are opportunistic and that a large percentage don’t even need a forced entry – the burglar goes through an open window or uses the keys that are left under the door mat. Sometimes the intruder even enters through the unlocked back door when you are upstairs.
Other burglaries are often carried out by a rogue tradesman who searches for such an opportunity. Be wary of cold callers that offer to clean your windows or clear your guttering. Genuine tradesmen would have no problem providing you with ID or a business card and you can check them out before you allow them to enter your home. Getting an Intercom System fitted is a good way of checking who is at the door before you open it.
Don’t be fooled by a leaflet or business card that only has a mobile phone number on it and no address – anyone can have these printed up very inexpensively. When you need work done it is better to use someone who has been recommended to you rather than someone who calls to your door.
You should consider getting CCTV for your home or an alarm system fitted. There are some great deals on Alarm Systems (currently with free intercom), and a Home CCTV System could cost less than you think.
