Believe it or not, nearly 100 burglaries are happening in Victoria every day.
In Melbourne’s worst-hit suburbs, an average of two burglaries per day are taking place.
These alarming statistics are troublesome to both home and business owners.
Safety and security are two things that should always be in our priorities, while your home or workplace should always be a safe haven for you, your family, and your employees.
Here at Briggs Electrical, we believe it’s possible to enhance your safety 24/7 from the risk of unexpected home invaders.
Our work is not only centred around making sure your home’s electrical system is working well but also in protecting you from any form of attempted break-ins through specialist CCTV and home security solutions.
Ring the alarm: home security system
No matter the size of your house or office, it is important to have some sort of security measure in place.
Of course, we have locks on the doors and windows, and are familiar with many ways to keep a home looking secure or occupied, even when you’re not there.
To maximise your home’s protection from threats, you should also have a home security plan.
Briggs Electrical can be your partner in coming up with a comprehensive plan to secure your home. Once the strategy is complete, we’ll set up the system by installing contacts, sensors, and detectors. Once we’ve completed setup, we’ll walk you through the ins and outs of your new alarm system.
For those with existing home security plans and are thinking of updating or upgrading their systems, you can also contact Briggs Electrical here.
Caught on camera: CCTV installation
In addition to securing your home with a state-of-the-art alarm system, you can up the ante by installing closed-circuit television (CCTV) in and around your home.
With the rise of breaking and entering cases across the city, setting security cameras up is a great way to deter criminals from pushing through with their plans.
The simple truth is that burglars are lazy: they’re looking for the easiest and quickest in, and if something takes too long or poses too high a risk, they’ll bolt.
Monitor your home… even when you’re away from it!
Another advantage of CCTV installation is that you can monitor your property remotely.
Even if you are away for a weekend or on an extended holiday, you will still be able to closely monitor what’s happening around your home or office.
If you’re thinking about installing CCTV technology at your place, give the Briggs Electrical crew a call. We’ll set up an HD CCTV system for your home or office that offers round the clock monitoring – 24 hours a day; seven days a week!
Home security starts with you
Safety starts with you, and in addition to a security system, it often starts with the basics:
- Ensure your property is equipped with good quality and robust locks – on windows too!
- Keep valuables out of sight – if it can be seen from the outside, it’s a temptation
- Don’t neglect your second storey – ensure windows are fitted with secure locks
- Keep your garden clean – bushes and over-growing gardens work as the perfect cover for someone lurking around a home
Little things such as these can matter in situations involving your safety and security. You surely don’t want to become another statistic!
