Securing your shed
Your garden shed may not be as important to you as your actual house, but garden sheds are used to store some expensive or useful items, such as bikes, power tools and garden accessories, which you`d really not want to have stolen by a burglar. Sadly, garden sheds are a target for thieves and burglarswho feel they can easily break into them... so securing yours is essential.
If you`re installing a new garden shed, considering its location first can help to protect it. For example, placing your shed somewhere that`s in full view of neighbours may deter thieves and burglars who fear being seen. At the same time, you don`t want it to be installed somewhere where it`s in the view of a public road as it may actually attract attention. Placing a garden shed near to a driveway may help by restricting access while a car is parked in the driveway.
Consider the weaknesses a garden shed has. A windowless shed is automatically more secure than one with windows since thieves and burglars can`t use these as access points and also can`t look in at the contents. Also think about where the door is. If you can see the door from your kitchen window, for instance, it will help as you can watch for intruders more readily.
Nuts and bolts are a reasonably cheap improvement you can make to a garden shed door. Remove the existing screws from the garden shed door and replace them with nuts and bolts, reinforced with superglue. The result should be a more secure garden shed door that thieves and burglars will find harder to deal with, since it will be more difficult to simply kick open the garedn shed door or to undo the screws.
A little more complex than nuts and bolts but still reasonably priced are garden shed bars. These are metal staffs that are attached to a garden shed door and then reinforced with a padlock. The garden shed bar is both a deterrent and a good garden shed security measure. Similarly, you might install an anchor bolt. This attaches to equipment within the garden shed such as gardening tools and reduces the chances of a thief or burglar being able to leave with these items in the event of a break-in.
A padlock is an option for some strong garden shed doors and the type you choose depends on the frame and whether you`re securing a shed door or a window. Smaller padlocks may do the trick in some circumstances, while coach bolt fixings are useful for securing garden shed door frames.
If you have a bit more money to spend, it may be worth installing aburglar alarm system, you can choose from a wired or wireless system both of which offer fantastic protection for your garden shed. While a thief might make it into your shed, a very loud audible burglar alarm system can deter the criminal from stealing any valuables. Burglar larms typically use infrared technology to determine when an intruder or burglar has entered the garden shed. A wireless burglar alarm system with wireless pir sensors can alarm and provide security when a power supply is not readily available, since these wireless burglar alarms normally use batteries.
Another security options is a CCTV kit. This is another option that could be used on its own or in addition to a wireless burglar alarm system and provides actual visual monitoring in case of break-ins. The CCTV cameras are generally placed close to where a burglar might enter the garden shed, such as over the door. Just the mere presence of a CCTV camera may be enough to deter thieves which it is why ioyt is always considering the option of a dummy CCTV camera if you did not want the expence of installing a full CCTV kit, it is also worth noting that CCTV kits are also available in wireless options....
If you want to install something more than a padlock or a hasp and staple lock, consider stainless steel bolts
as a method for securing your garden shed. These bolts are harder to break and more resistant to the tools used by thieves and burglars , such as crowbars and hacksaws, so will help to further secure your property.

Tips For Choosing the right Burglar Alarm / Home Alarm Systems
How to Protect Your Home From Burglars
Many home insurance providers these days offer discounts on premiums for homes with burglar alarm systems fitted and with good reason; these homes make less claims for theft. Opportunistic thieves can be discouraged by the very sight of a burglar alarm system on your house or by the sound of a siren going off should they attempt to get into your shed or garage. Modern domestic wireless burglar alarm systems have improve massively over the last couple of years and are now very reliable indeed, there is no longer a requirement for professional installation and unsightly wires and it is well worth protecting your property in this way.
The most basic types of burglar alarm systems called Closed Circuit Systems are based on using magnetic switches on doors and windows which break an electric circuit when the window or door is opened; breaking the circuit triggers an alarm. Once the alarm has gone off it can only be de-activated by entering a security code, not simply by re-connecting the circuit.
Motion detectors can be incorporated into your burglar alarm system for extra protection. Passive Infrared (PIR) motion detectors, detect heat radiation from an intruder, triggering the burglar alarm. There is a built-in delay to allow time for the homeowner to enter and key in the security code. Most burglar alarm systems have an internal sounder that emits a tone when you enter the house yourself, to remind you to enter the code and disarm the burglar alarm system.
Once the burglar alarm system is activated by an intruder, an alarm will sound. Some urglar alarm systems will have both inside and outside sounders, some will have additional exterior flashing lights and the most sophisticated will have a telephone auto-dialler to summon help. For protection of distant holiday homes, caravans, or boats where there is no electricity supply or telephone line, GSM burglar alarm systems can be used. GSM stands for Global System for Mobile Communications (originally from Groupe Special Mobile) and is a standard for mobile telephone systems. Using all the usual components of conventional systems including an audible alarm to discourage intruders, they also include a SIM card and battery to auto-dial through the mobile phone network.
It used to be that in order to create a circuit for a burglar alarm system all the components had to be connected together by wires. Advances in wireless technology now mean that the components can communicate with each other wirelessly making burglar alarm systems much easier and quicker to install and less unsightly. The only maintenance required is a yearly change of batteries.
Most burglar alarm systems use the same basic components and it is possible to adequately protect your home from opportunistic thieves with a DIY wireless burglar alarm system for about £200. More sophisticated burglar alarm systems are only really necessary if you have very valuable property which might be the target of more determined, professional thieves.
For as little as £30 a magnetic switch burglar alarm can be fitted to a shed or garage emitting a loud alarm alerting you or your neighbour to an intruder. To protect garden ornaments or furniture choose a waterproof, wireless PIR burglar alarm system.
If you have a long driveway with an entrance out of sight of your home you might want to consider a suitably placed PIR which will trigger a chime to alert you when someone is approaching, particularly useful if you work from home.
The most recent Home Office publication, "Crime in England and Wales 2008-09," indicates that the British Crime Survey (BCS) for 2008-09 shows that approximately ¾ million domestic burglary attempts occurred in England and Wales, a similar number to the previous year. Burglaries with property entry and attempted burglaries remained stable at 450,000 and 300,000 respectively. "Distraction" burglaries, which make up approximately 3% of all domestic burglaries, fell by 10% from 2007-08. Non-domestic burglaries also fell, by 2%, to about 300,000 offences.
Most burglars are opportunists who take advantage of lax security. In 30% of cases, burglars gain entry via an open door or window. Generally, burglars have several prerequisites:
1. An assurance that the property is worth burgling. Small, valuable, quickly collected items such as cash, jewellery and laptop computers are of special interest.
2. Concealment. Burglars will seek to enter a property unseen in a poorly-lit area or one obscured by undergrowth.
3. Seclusion. Burglars avoid confrontation with householders and will only attempt crimes when a property appears empty.
4. Straightforward access. Substantial doors and locks which delay a potential burglar for even a relatively short time will often be enough for them to seek an easier target.
Burglars operate on a risk / reward basis. The following security tips should help a potential robber decide that easier pickings lie elsewhere.
Avoid leaving valuables where they can be seen from outside. Deny strangers access to the property; resourceful burglars may "case the joint" by asking to use the phone, requesting a drink or impersonating a door-to-door salesman. Remove shrubbery from entry points, or pick especially thorny plants and put in external security lighting. When away from home install timers to switch on light(s) at night and randomly turn TV and radio on and off. Ensure door hinges are on the inside and fit heavy-duty deadbolt locks to all external doors, along with wide-view peepholes. Avoid "hiding" a key outside. Thieves are well aware of likely locations and guaranteed to find it quickly. Keep unused windows locked at all times.
From trimming back bushes to installing high-security, double locking door night latch
es and motion sensors, there are many ways in which householders can protect their home. However, the most secure method is the installation of a burglar alarm system. Different burglar alarm systems provide varying levels of security, with some monitoring all ways into the home and others just main doors. Whilst this is a matter of personal preference, external monitoring is a crucial decision. Some systems merely set off a loud internal alarm on detection of unauthorised entry, which is often enough to discourage a burglar. Others are monitored by home security firms, which dispatch police and other services if household security is breached. For frequent travellers, those living in districts with high crime rates or in rural regions with few neighbours, such a monitoring system is well worthy of consideration, although a monthly fee is payable, this is why we offer a full range of self monitored burglar alarm systems that not only contact you but a selection of 5 telephone numbers (mobile or landline) that you have chosen. This eliminate the extra cost of paying for expencive external monitoring and is a revolution in home security. Consultation with a security company regarding the available options is essential. Exactly what is monitored, the ease of use and cost are all important considerations. It is also worth checking insurance policies to determine which systems attract discounts on premiums.
