Seven tips for more safety in your home

Keeping your home safe doesn’t have to cost a fortune. Here are a few effective measures against burglars that cost little or nothing at all.

#1 Empty your letterbox

If you’re away or on a holiday for a long time, your letterbox will fill up faster than you might imagine. An overflowing letterbox is just the sign burglars are waiting for to know that you’re not around. To avoid this, ask a neighbour or a friend to empty your letterbox every once in a while. If you can, also give them your house keys. It’s always good to know that somebody is checking in on your flat. Alternatively, the Swiss Post offers a retention service to keep all letters and parcels addressed to you safely during your absence.

#2 Have light in your home

If the lights in your home are always off, this could be a sign that you’re never at home. Also, as burglars don’t want to be seen, it makes it easier for them to rob your house if there’s no light in and around it. A few small helpers won’t cost you a lot and will make burglars think you’re at home.

#3 Have robust doors and windows

Burglars like to find easy ways of getting into a house, so it’s worth investing in good doors and windows – providing that you close your windows and lock your door when you leave your home. If you have a garden shed or a bicycle room, lock it with a robust padlock. Even little measures like this will make it harder for burglars to get at your belongings.

#4 Don’t use an answerphone

Many people still use an answerphone to let others know that they’re away. Some even mention the exact dates of their absence. This is like an invitation to burglars. You’re better off deactivating the answerphone when you’re going away for a long time or, alternatively, redirecting phone calls to your mobile phone.

#5 Scare burglars away

Deterring burglars with optical and acoustical means, such as motion detectors or alarm systems, is very efficient. If your outdoor light goes on or a siren goes off, most burglars will flee the site. Installing one or more surveillance cameras around your home will also help deter burglars and preserve evidence if someone sneaks around your house.

#6 Hold back your social media posts

People often share the dates of their holidays on Facebook. You might think only your friends can see your posts, but it’s a well-known secret that your data isn’t as safe as you might think on social media channels. Information about your absence is very popular with criminals. It’s worth waiting until you’re back home before you share all the pictures and details of your holiday.

#7 Lock away valuables

Don’t leave your valuables lying around on the kitchen table when you leave the house. Hide them in a safe place or even better; lock them up if you can. If any valuable items can be seen from outside your house, burglars are tempted to get their hands on them. Putting away your valuables in a safe or a locked cash box will make it hard for burglars to get at them, even if they’ve managed to get into your home.
