Victim support

It is also common for the victim to be left feeling anxious about security, upset about the loss of their belongings, insecure, and confused as to what will happen next.

Getting new locks fitted will make you feel far more secure, and remember to keep hold of the receipt as you may be able to claim back the costs for the purchase and installation from your insurance company. 

It is also important to assess how the burglar entered your home and to see what improvements you can make to ensure it doesn’t happen again.

Investing in a home alarm can be a really effective way to secure your home. Research shows that 60% of attempted burglaries carried out on homes fitted with alarms are unsuccessful.

For maximum security, consider safeguarding your home with the latest digital technology. Yale’s range of digital door locks combines peace of mind with convenience by allowing you to access and protect your property without a key. All you need to do is keep your PIN number in your head.

Clever security features of Yale’s digital door locks include the fake PIN code function that prevents others from identifying your passcode during access. This works to confuse onlookers, while at the same time allowing you to enter your PIN away from prying eyes, keeping your home safe and secure.

Temporary PINs can also be issued for visitors such as neighbours and tradesmen and deleted at the touch of a button, so there is no need to reveal your family passcode.
