ABUS: Home Security Month

National Security Month Advice to Keep your Home Secure

October marks National Home Security Month, a time when homeowners are encouraged to evaluate and bolster their home security measures. Improving security in time for November, the highest month, where burglary claims peak with Bonfire Night being the worst day of the year.

The Office of National Statistics say that in 2022/2023 there were 191,490 home burglaries reported in England and Wales. That's an average of 525 burglaries a day. At ABUS UK, we are supporting this vital initiative, aiming to offer high-quality, reliable solutions to safeguard your home.

ABUS is committed to ensuring utmost security for homes and properties across the UK year-round but in National Home Security Month - a nationwide campaign that stresses the importance of securing your home against burglaries, break-ins, and other intrusions – we ramp up our drive to provide homeowners with the security products they need to protect their homes. By offering products designed with cutting-edge technology and solid reliability, we hope to contribute to a safer community for all.

A sturdy lock cylinder is your first line of defence. Designed to meet the highest industry standards, our lock cylinders are constructed to withstand tampering and forced entry, providing homeowners with peace of mind. They can be supplied ‘keyed alike’ - that means you can have just one key to open every lock in your home, front and back doors, sheds, garages – even your bike. The ABUS X60 is a certified Sold Secure Diamond and Secured by Design, BSI 3 Star Kitemark approved door cylinder, with anti-drill, anti-snap, anti-pick, anti-bump and anti-plug extraction.

When it comes to securing outdoor areas, gates, or sheds, padlocks are indispensable. Our range of padlocks is designed for maximum durability and reliability, crafted from materials that withstand both environmental elements and manipulation. We even offer a smart version that works on your and your family’s fingerprints, the ABUS Touch 57.

To further strengthen your home security, ABUS UK offers a range of cameras and other security equipment. With features such as high-definition imaging, night vision, and motion detection, our cameras are your eyes when you're not around, sending alerts straight to your mobile device. Many of them are an easy DIY installation job; uncomplicated to install, and commission, and simple to operate via app, making your everyday life a bit more secure and relaxed in a matter of minutes.

One of our latest high-tech security offerings is the ABUS Smart Bluetooth Key Safe, not just a secure place to store keys but is a digital security device. This tamper-proof, weather-resistant safe has a solid metal housing made from pressure-cast zinc, providing a secure space for your keys or other small valuables. Controlled via an easy-to-use iOS or Android app, it allows homeowners to grant or withdraw access permissions in real time.

Designed for maximum flexibility, the ABUS Smart Bluetooth Key Safe is perfect for homeowners who need to allow entry to carers, workmen, or delivery personnel. It's also ideal for those who rent out their properties on platforms like Air BnB. Users are granted a unique 6-digit code for entry, controlled by time, the number of visits, or other criteria. The app allows the homeowner to set temporary permissions, monitor access history, and receive real-time notifications, offering complete control and peace of mind. This makes it an ideal solution for property managers or businesses requiring multi-user access without the complications of physical key exchanges.

With nearly a century of innovation in the security industry, ABUS UK stands with homeowners during National Home Security Month and throughout the year. Our suite of products - from lock cylinders and padlocks to advanced camera systems and smart key safes - offers comprehensive solutions designed to meet myriad of security needs. National Home Security Month serves as a reminder to us all that security is not just a product but a long-term investment in peace of mind. With ABUS UK, you can make that investment a sound one.
