National Home Security Month draws to a close once again

A month of home security memes and infographics

The latest National Home Security Month has once again drawn to a close. This year, instead of blog posts offering home security tips and advice, we created a series of infographics and memes loosely following the 5 weekly themes of the national campaign.

These are all reproduced here. Do feel free to share them on social media to get the messages out there.

Week 1 – Raise the Alarm

The campaign started with a focus on burglar alarms so our graphic is a comparison of the features of wired and wireless burglar alarms (based on this being a question we get asked the most – which is best?).

Week 2 – Setting the Standard

Week 2 was all about locks so we created a simple meme to get across the value of installing anti-snap locks.

Week 3 – Lights, Cameras, Action!

This week it was outdoor security so our graphic offers tips for securing your sheds, garages and out-buildings, which can often be seen as low risk, high reward targets for burglars.

Week 4 – Future Focussed

Looking at how technology is changing home security, we created an overview of some of the different ways you can open a door ranging from a simple key lock to biometric access control systems.

Week 5 – Dark Knights Descend

The campaign ended on a spooky note to coincide with Halloween – traditionally one of the highest risk dates on the calendar for burglary. Our final infographic shows you how to make your house look too scary for burglars to even attempt a break in!
