If you’re a new homeowner, congratulations! But, if you haven’t yet taken security measures for your new home you’ll want to think about it and get serious soon. New neighbourhoods are a hot spot for burglars to prey on homes that haven’t yet taken security measures.

Listed below are the fastest growing Sydney suburbs with an average annual change in growth of 6 – 18%.

Marsden Park
Cobbitty – Leppington
Waterloo – Beaconsfield
Ingleburn
Willowdale
The Ponds

If you live in or near one of these suburbs, here’s why you should protect your new home with security roller shutters.

No way to know who belongs in the neighbourhood
If you’ve moved into a new neighbourhood, chances are half of it’s still in development. There are lots of people coming in and out so it’s difficult to tell who is supposed to be there and who shouldn’t. “There’s so much activity between the legitimate contractors that the illegitimate ones can come in and not really be noticed.”

No neighbourhood watch program
You Ymay not know your neighbours yet so you haven’t had a chance to build relationships and establish a good neighbourhood watch program.

May not have fencing yet
New neighbourhoods are a work in progress so residents likely don’t have their landscaping and fencing in place yet. Without fencing and therefore large dogs in the yard, it’s difficult to set a boundary to keep unwanted intruders out of your property boundaries.

No security cameras in place
Since a large portion of residents are still moving in and there are construction sites, there is little chance any security cameras will be in place in your new neighbourhood. Thus, any criminal activity will not be well-monitored and recorded to notify someone or catch the thieves. Security roller shutters can prevent your home from being targeted by intruders and vandals.

Busy moving in and may forget to secure home
Moving into a new home is exciting and is also a lot of work between organising your power, internet, unpacking boxes, and so forth. With all this, some homeowners forget to think about taking the time to secure their home. But it doesn’t have to take up a lot of your time and it will save you in the long run.

You can do a security check around your home in approximately 20 minutes noting down any security concerns. Pay special attention to doors and windows which are the first point of entry for burglars.
