While most of us at this time of year are preparing for Halloween festivities, there’s another seasonal event here in the UK, which runs for the whole month of October. At Obexion, October is a special month for us as it’s National Home Security Month.
National Home Security Month (or NHSM) has been running for the past four years now and is designed to create awareness around the importance of home security. The campaign tackles a new aspect of security each week of the month and provides excellent advice for both home and business owners for use through the year.
This month so far, the event has tackled deterrence measures such as CCTV, as well as smart security systems, and important considerations for dimly lit premises. As next week is Halloween, the NHSM team will be discussing tactics used by burglars and attackers during the Halloween period, and how you can prevent them from taking advantage.
Although National Home Security Month officially takes place in October, it’s important to make your property’s security a key priority at all times. Here at Obexion, we specialise in secure roller shutters that are certified against a broad spectrum of attack types and durations.
To find out what type of shutter is right for your property, we’ve published a completely free e-guide to choosing the right product for your project or premises. It covers all essential variables you should consider, from your sector, to physical location and the nature of what you’re protecting. There’s even information on additional functionality you may not have considered. You can download your copy for free, here.
For retailers, there are number of additional, operational conditions which are important to consider before purchasing. So to help, we’ve produced a second guide specifically for security for retailers. It’s completely free, and you can download your copy here. Note that all of our retail security shutters are certified to LPS 1175.
