Security Suggestions

1. Get an alarm - ideally with central station monitoring. Can be setup
so downstairs is protected at night while asleep.

2. Window locks - 2 on each opening window in bottom corners. Should be
fitted to all ground floor windows and to easily accessible windows on
upper floors.

3. Window opening restrictors - allow the window to be open slightly but
not opened wide enough for someone to climb in.

4. Patio Door Locks - Additional for top and bottom of patio doors.

5. Kickstop London Bar - Metal bar screwed to frame which strengthens it
to resist kicking and forced entry.

6. Hinge Bolts - To strengthen the hinge side of a door.

7. Spy hole or chain - so you can see who is outside before opening door

8. Back garden security lights - Automatically light when anyone comes

9. Trellis (flimsy) around top of fence - Recommended by Crime
Prevention Office as deterrent to intruders

10. Hasp Staple Lock and Padlock - Additional lock and security for
garden shed.
