A master key system makes it possible for authorised people to gain access to different parts of a building with only one key. It eliminates the need to carry around a heavy key chain as it can open many different locks.
As October is National Home Security Month, we are supporting this campaign by providing some advice and guidance on how to conduct your own security check this month. It is also advised to annually check your home and contents insurance policies are still valid and are providing as much cover as you think they are.
Burglaries are often opportunistic. An open window or a window which is clearly in disrepair will be like candy to a baby, so we highly recommend you give your windows and frames a health check each year to ensure they are giving you and your family the security and protection you need.

A solid oak front door is likely to make you feeling secure because who can break in through an oak door, especially if it has a 5 lever mortice deadlock or a similar locking device which complies with BS3621.
Home security is a priority for all of us. We all want to feel safe in our own homes and it’s perfectly natural to take precautionary measures to protect your loved ones and valuables from unwanted intruders.
Keeping on top of house and home maintenance is a challenge for most people these days. I am sure I am not alone in wondering where all the leisure time has gone. Busy days turn into busy weeks and months and before you know it, it’s Christmas again!
We all put things aside, especially if they don’t seem too much of a priority at the time, so having a list on the fridge that you can see every time you grab the milk or cook a meal will spur you on to getting through all the chores. It could be the sense of elation you feel at seeing your task list reduce, or the guilt of not having crossed any off in the last 6 months! Whatever it is that spurs you on, being able to joyfully scribble off that last entry means you can relax in the knowledge that your time is once again your own – for a while at least!
