Security Letterbox

It's sad but true…

…mail theft is on the increase in New Zealand. And even more worrying it is estimated that a staggering number of home burglaries can now be traced to overflowing letterboxes. A large percentage of burglaries are committed during daylight and many are committed by ‘opportunist’ burglars looking for an easy opportunity, in other words signs that there is nobody at home — such as an overflowing letterbox.

Safety Tip One - Lighting
Interior lighting is necessary to show signs of life and activity inside a residence at night. A darken home night-after-night sends the message to burglars that you are away on a trip. Light timers are inexpensive and can be found everywhere. They should be used on a daily basis, not just when you're away. In this way you set up a routine that your neighbors can observe and will allow them to become suspicious when your normally lighted home becomes dark.

Safety Tip Two - Home Safes
Since the prices of good home safes are falling, having a safe in your home is a wise investment. Home safes are designed to keep the smash and grab burglar, nosey kids, dishonest babysitter or housekeeper from gaining access to important documents and personal property. Home safes need to be anchored into the floor or permanent shelving.
