Helping to prevent you from becoming a victim of crime.

Burglary - Crime Prevention

There are many advertised products to protect your home from a burglary, we look at some of our favouites here.

Door Chains and Door Bars

Low Cost Door Chains and Door Security Bars have been around for a long time and offer extra security and the ability for occupants to open the door partially before letting anyone in.  Mycrimeprevention.co.uk don't supply any of these products directly, but they are available from shops such as Amazon for only a few pounds. 

Extra layers of security such as Low Cost Door Chains and Door Security Bars help to increase the protection offered to occupants. 

  

Solar Security Lighting

solar-security-lightSolar powered security lights offer a great security solution for locations that don't have mains power but could benefit from extra lighting.
This  motion activated porch light is one of the smaller lights that could provide extra security and may be enough to put a burglar off from trying the door.  There are more powerful options available in our range.  Putting a burglar off is the real aim, every extra level of security you have will help. 

 

 Fake TV

Fake TV  is quite a new product.  It is a development similar to light timers that switch on and give the impression someone is in your home.

The theory goes that burglars can be put off as they don't want to break into a home with someone in, they then choose another target.

Fake TV is a low cost product (£19.99 + £3 p+p) and could help increase your home security, however it should be used with other crime prevention products and not relied upon by itself.. 

 

 

 

Anti-snap Locks

yale anti_snap_cylinderyale anti snap locks are a cheap, easy to install and effective method of improving home security.  If you are currently asking 'what is lock-snapping' you will not be alone.  Although lock-snapping has been around since 2009 most people have not heard of it.  The problem is due to design problems with most door locks. 

Click on the anti-snap locks link to see a short video showing how to remove your old lock and fit a Yale Anti-snap euro cylinder.

Electronic PeepHole Viewers

phv1325-comparisonv1This PHV1325 PeepHole Viewer, (along with the 1330) are two leading PeepHole Viewers on the market. 

The PHV1325 PeepHole Viewer is an LCD screen that lets you see who is on the other side of your door. 

The PHV1330 Digital PeepHole Viewer turns a small door viewer image into a big bright image using an LCD screen.

This could help the elderly or those with poor vision to see who is calling, before opening their door.

PHV 1325 Electronic PeepHole Viewer is a very simple to use, just one button needs to be pressed.

Installation is quick and easy, see the PeepHole Viewer installation video here and the viewer only needs 2 batteries for power.

Standard PeepHoles fitted into doors have poor image quality, in low light it may not be easy to identify who is outside.  .  Electronic PeepHole viewers provide:

  • A clear LCD image to show who is at the door
  • Compensation for low light images
  • Compensation for fish eye distortion
  • Better viewing for those with poor vision

Security Cameras

Cctv cameras and technology have developed greatly recently.  Some security cameras now come with night vision capability and can be viewed over the internet and even on your SmartPhone while you are out or on holiday.  CCTV cameras can act as a deterrent to burglars, however CCTV systems are a more expensive option than the other products highlighted on this page.  Our advice would be make sure you have the other burglary crime prevention products fitted, before purchasing  a CCTV system. 

The systems highlighted on mycrimeprevention.co.uk will state if they can be viewed over the internet, free support to ensure internet capable viewing will be provided on all cctv systems purchased through mycrimeprevention.co.uk.
