Upgrade your home security in six easy steps

Feeling safe and secure in your own home is an essential part of living comfortably. Having a high quality security system in place means that you’re free to relax and enjoy your space without any unfriendly surprises.

It’s important to update your security system if you want to benefit from premium protection. If securing your property is a priority, we’ve put together a simple guide to make your home as safe as can be.

Step 1: Lock it down

Upgrading locks, handles and latches is a great place to start your security overhaul. You might not know it, but there are different door locks and handles – for example, most homes are fitted with basic tubular latches, which can be easily forced. Mortice-style locks are more technical to install but harder to break into.

When building your home with Fairhaven, we can take you through a range of door locks and handles – from more simple options to complex solutions.


Step 2: Get an intercom doorbell

Intercoms make us think of movies, right? Secret missions, guarded compounds, spies?

These days, you don’t have to be a celebrity, government agent or evil villain to have an intercom doorbell system. Audio and video intercom acts as a first layer of security so that you can see who is at the door and screen your visitors. It’s also a convenient way to greet your guests without having to get up!


Step 3: Activate floodlights

Sensor-activated floodlights are something to consider. Light up difficult areas and protect your home from possible intruders by placing them at entry points around the house.

Thieves and vandals are known to target properties where people are either away or asleep. Floodlights are a great deterrent, giving the impression you’re at home and alert.

Step 4: Get 360-degree vision with CCTV

If you’re concerned about advanced security, it might be worth considering CCTV.

These systems provide a comprehensive view and can be tailored to your property’s layout, getting into those difficult areas and protecting you from every angle.




Step 5: Activate your alarms

Alarms are a simple and effective way to protect your home. It can be pretty reassuring to know that if something’s not right, you’re definitely going to hear about it!

Many alarm systems can now be used across devices, so that you’ll get a notification on your phone or smartwatch if your home is under threat.



Step 6: Set up motion sensors

Motion sensors aren’t restricted to lights. You can get a motion sensor to trigger just about anything, depending on your security needs.

Detecting suspicious movement in and around the property is an immediate way to protect yourself and your home.
