Yale Encourages Homeowners to Have a ‘Safecation’

With recent reports of record low crime levels across England and Wales, householders might be forgiven for dropping their guard this summer; but it’s Yale’s mission to ensure Britons enjoy the holidays without worrying about whether homes are left as targets to burglars.

As part of Yale’s ‘Safecation’ campaign, a new summer crime awareness video on Yale.co.uk highlights where security can be improved when householders leave homes unattended – whether they are holidaying in the UK or abroad, out back enjoying the garden, or exploring the great outdoors.


Advice includes closing and locking all windows, doors, sheds and gates; not leaving spare keys outside the house or valuable items out on display; cancelling milk and newspaper deliveries; and setting a home alarm.

Yale is also encouraging Britons to invest in security products that will help them enjoy their ‘Safecation’. Inexpensive items such as padlocks for sheds and gates, as well as wireless home alarms, are all ideal for that all-important peace of mind when you’re away.

What’s more, Yale’s new pioneering Crime Watcher app is ideal for security conscious holidaymakers, as it offers straightforward security advice for each part of the home.

The app also displays current burglary statistics within a mile of any given postcode during a one-month period. This is handy as it raises awareness of crime in an area, meaning that householders won’t be left complacent before leaving their homes.
