Home Security Checklist

Philip from Exceed we fix windows & doors

With summer just around the corner and the warmer weather setting in, you’re going to be spending a lot of time outdoors leaving doors and windows open to get fresh, cool breezes through your home. But leaving your home open may increase the risk of break-ins and create an easy way for intruders to gain entry into your home.

Exceed is here to help you with 10 top tips to improve your home security:

1 - Use key-operated locks on doors and windows – and don’t hide spare keys under doormats or in obvious places for burglars to find them easily

2 - Install security screens on all doors to keep your family safe

3 - Install window security stays to increase security, natural safe ventilation and prevent children falling from high windows

4 - Install hinge bolts to stop doors from being lifted out of their frames

5 - Upgrade beads and rubbers to hold any glass in place

6 - Install digital deadlocks so you no longer need to remember your keys when you leave your home and grant short term access to friends or Airbnb guests

7 - If you have an alarm system, make sure it is working properly

8 - Keep plants trimmed around doors and windows and install sensor lights or CCTV cameras

9 - Don’t leave valuable items like keys out in easy view for opportunistic thieves

10 - If you’re going away on holidays, make your home look occupied – leave the TV or radio playing, set lights to come on with a timer and ask a neighbour to collect your mail and take care of bins

Being aware of potential security risks and taking action early is the best way to keep your home and loved ones safe.

Poll: What are the benefits of Kelsey Lanes A2 Milk?

Kelsey Lane Creamery

You might love milk, but it might not love you back. If you’re familiar with the bloating, cramps and other unpleasant things that milk and dairy products can cause, but you can’t give them up in your cuppa, cereal or smoothie, you should meet A2 milk.

Our cows live on lush pastures in Selwyn, Canterbury that is sustainably and naturally farmed, because we know happy cows make the best A2 milk.

Bring the clink of glass milk bottles back to your doorstep with fresh, delicious A2 milk delivered direct to your door – just like the way milk was.
