Survey Reveals Many People Leave it too Late to Secure their Homes

In the month when clocks go back and evenings get darker, tradespeople are being urged to remind their customers of the importance of home security after a survey by IronmongeryDirect found that 85% were only asked to fit security products after a break-in.

The survey results have been published by the online ironmongery supplier in support of National Home Security Month, which runs throughout October and aims to raise awareness around the importance of home security to help protect the nation’s homes, families and possessions.

Despite the rise in smart security products, the survey, which was completed by 2,000 tradespeople, also revealed that only 7% are regularly asked about fitting smart security products, with 57% never asked at all. This is backed up by research by the National Home Security Month campaign which shows that 28% of UK adults take no security precautions at home.

When the Office of National Statistics (ONS) released its latest crime statistics earlier this year, it revealed that 1 in every 65 homes in England and Wales were burgled in the previous 12-month period.

Wayne Lysaght-Mason, Managing Director at IronmongeryDirect, said:
“Having a good level of home security is vital and it’s important that tradespeople advise their customers on the options available to them in order to prevent potential break-ins.
“There are a wide range of products available to help keep a building safe and secure – from a basic lock to sophisticated alarm systems. There is also an increasing number of smart technology products available, providing remote monitoring to secure a property.”
