What our clients say...

"In January 2023 we had a burglary at our home in London. The incident really shook us up and caused a lot of upset as we were home at the time. The incident made us realise how we had neglected the security to ourselves and our property. We wanted an independent perspective to advise us on how we could prevent this from occurring again. Aldermans Consultants were very professional and gave us a detailed report on where we were vulnerable and what we could do to prevent something happening in the future. In light of the Police no longer offering this service, I think Aldermans do a great job at crime prevention, and giving expert advice. We feel a whole lot safer in our home now".

Here are some important aspects to consider when it comes to residential security:

  1. Physical Security Measures:
    • Secure Doors and Windows: Install solid core or metal doors with deadbolt locks. Ensure windows are sturdy and have locks or security bars.
    • Outdoor Lighting: Illuminate the exterior of the house and entry points with motion-sensor lights to deter intruders.
    • Fencing and Gates: Install a sturdy fence around the property with a lockable gate to control access.
    • Security Cameras: Install surveillance cameras at strategic locations around the house to monitor and record activities.
    • Alarm Systems: Install a reliable alarm system that includes door/window sensors, motion detectors, and a loud siren. Consider connecting it to a security monitoring service.
  2. Access Control:
    • Locks and Keys: Use high-quality locks and control the distribution of keys. Consider using smart locks that allow remote access control and monitoring.
    • Entry Points: Reinforce vulnerable entry points such as front and back doors, garage doors, and basement windows.
    • Security Doors: Consider installing a security door with a peephole or a doorbell camera for visual identification of visitors.
    • High grade CCTV system to deter intruders, protect vulnerable areas, and capture wrong doing or trespass.
  3. Security Practices:
    • Home Maintenance: Keep the property well-maintained, ensuring that doors, windows, and locks are in good working condition.
    • Secure Valuables: Store valuable items, such as jewelry, important documents, and electronics, in a secure safe or lockbox.
    • Secure Wi-Fi Network: Protect your home network with a strong password and encryption to prevent unauthorised access.
    • Social Media Awareness: Avoid sharing vacation plans or other sensitive information on social media platforms to prevent potential burglars from targeting your home.
  4. Neighborhood Watch and Community Engagement:
    • Join or start a neighborhood watch program to foster a sense of community and enhance security through shared vigilance and communication.
    • Stay informed about local crime trends and report any suspicious activities to local Police patrols.
  5. Emergency Preparedness:
    • Install smoke detectors, carbon monoxide detectors, and fire extinguishers to address potential fire hazards.
    • Develop an emergency plan for the family, including escape routes and meeting points in case of emergencies.
    • Consider installing a home security system with 24/7 monitoring for immediate response in case of emergencies.
    • Consider installation of panic room or ability to secure an area
