In winter, it is no secret that the rate of burglaries in Northern Ireland tends to climb! Combine this fact with the longer dark hours and harsh weather and winter is probably the worst time of year for home security. But don’t worry!

From the installation of intruder alarms and CCTV to fire alarm systems; we will provide all the necessary support.


Winter Home Safety Checklist


Windows and Doors

It may seem like an obvious way to improve the security of your home, but many people are likely to forget to keep their windows and doors locked! Because of the earlier darkness in winter, make a habit of checking and locking your windows and doors as part of your daily morning and evening routine.


Light Timers

Another way to make sure that your home is kept safer during winter is by investing in some internal light timers or external PIR floodlights. If you are worried about being burgled, setting your lights to come on by a timer is a great deterrent for potential burglaries. It may be also a good idea to set your radios or clocks to turn on by a timer.


New Security System

The simplest way to ensure your home safety is at it’s best and prepared for winter is by updating or installing a new security system. There are so many different systems out there, so we understand if you are overwhelmed when it comes to choosing the most appropriate!

With the help of the Advanced Overwatch team, you will be guaranteed to find the best security system for your needs. From the option of adding remote monitoring or controlling your camera system from an app, our engineers are here for you.


Arm your existing security system

It is important to have your home protected at all times, therefore investing in a top quality home security system, or ensure your own system is functioning correctly – we carry out maintenance across Northern Ireland.

There are many reasons to invest in a home security system for your house, including protecting your valuables, deterring crime, allowing house remote access, lowering your home insurance and giving an overall peace of mind when it comes to the safety and security of your household.

It is a well-known statistic that most burglaries happen during the day. What most people don’t know is that statistic relates to a break in and does not take into account the exterior of your property.

When it comes to outdoor burglary, this usually happens from 6 pm to 6 am, so we advise investing in security lighting with active deterrence CCTV to help prevent this. Although most burglaries do happen during the day, some do still occur at night so security lighting and remote monitoring will also protect you from this.
