Home security.
« on: January 31, 2015, 10:26:29 am »
I have noticed on my patrols in the early evenings just as its getting dark a large number of houses around the village with no lighting on inside the house. From a burglars point of view this makes it obvious which property's are unoccupied. May I suggest if you are not getting home until after dark you invest in a timer switch and plug a lamp into it in your front room or any where at the front of your house to give it that lived in look. Timer switches are relatively cheap and if you plug a low voltage bulb lamp into it then cost effective to run. If it deters a burglar from targeting your home then it will pay for itself in the long run.
