Enjoy peace of mind whilst on holiday – protect your home from burglars in Hampshire and west Berkshire

"Don’t let burglars ruin your holiday" warn local Basingstoke Keyholding and Security Guarding company, Basingstoke Keyholders

Burglaries are a priority for Hampshire Police but this is mainly reactive, dealing with the after effects of intruders attacking property.

Burglars are mainly opportunistic thieves, but they do tend to scope out homes to try and spot a weakness they can exploit.

A house whose owner is away on holiday makes a tempting target, but there are ways of protecting your home.

FIRSTLY, don’t advertise your plans:

Refrain from posting holiday snaps on Facebook until you get home, as these make it clear your house is sitting empty.

In summer, hire someone to mow the lawn and in winter, hire someone to shovel your snow. 

Don’t let mail pile up. Either have the Post Office stop delivery, or have a neighbour collect the mail every day.

Keep curtains and blinds closed to prevent burglars peering through to assess target items and routes, and use timers or Smart Apps to turn lights off and on at set times.


SECONDLY, try and hinder thieves.

For example, patio door locks can prove flimsy and offer little protection against a determined burglar, so try placing a sturdy brush handle in the track to stop the door from sliding open. Padlock side gates. Check all windows are locked.

If you normally keep a spare key hidden outside the home, bring it in before going on holiday.

Keep the outside lit as burglars do not like being seen. PIR-activated garden and security lighting is very beneficial as a deterrent.


FINALLY, call John or Paul at Basingstoke Security Keyholders ( on 01256 831838 to discuss temporary services whilst you are away:

Construction site security and the threat of inside jobs

  Property Security Group Limited specialise in the hire and remote 24hr monitoring of temporary and portable intruder detection 4G, wireless, solar and battery powered, visual verification security camera systems using the Webeye CMS cloud platform. Recently, we had security camera activations from two of our internal PIR-activated Webeye visual verification detectors late on a Saturday night. Two males, one wearing hi viz, were entering the substantial property which is undergoing full redevelopment and refurbishment. With the Webeye system, we had live video evidence of their progress through the building. Entry was being made via an external road frontage where there were PIR cameras because of practical and GDPR issues, through a locked door which was previously blocked off. We activated the two 110db sirens and strobes which stopped them in our tracks. Our 24hr control room called the local security keyholder company who were on site within 8 minutes and chased them off. Un
