Halloween and Bonfire Night, Ghouls, Ghosts and Burglary!
The time is upon us, spooky ghouls and ghosts and things that go bump in the night. Toothy pumpkins, masked trick-or-treaters banging upon the door, festive fun all. Little is it known, however, that another rather more sinister tradition also blights the nights of Halloween and Bonfire Night – a notable spike in burglary figures! Lurking amongst those ghouls and ghosts, many a wrongdoer is unfortunately also on the prowl, eyes trained on your property and possessions!
According to a leading insurance company, Halloween is typically the worst day of the year for malicious damage and vandalism to persons’ homes, the number of claims soaring by an incredible 160% in comparison to a normal day, while Bonfire Night takes the unenviable title as worst night of the year for burglary, figures up by 22 %.
With National Home Security Month launched this year to coincide with Halloween and Bonfire Night, it goes without saying that secure locks, good lighting and remembering to actually lock your doors and windows when you go out to celebrate (even if only venturing to the back garden) are critical first-line defenses in the protection of your property, but still a worrying number of properties have no effective alarm system in place.
Are you prepared to wait for one of those less welcome bumps in the night? A ghoul or ghost that turns out to be a burglar? At Castellex, we take home security seriously – as producers of some of the UK’s leading anti-intruder alarm systems, we work with you to provide the best possible solution tailored exactly to your needs, be it for a home, commercial property or anything from a moored yacht to an embassy.
Unrivalled in terms of effectiveness and robust quality design, our Castellex Sound Blaster-X and Castellex Strobe-X systems are simply among the best anti-intruder alarms available on the market, the first delivering powerful 127dB blasts of sound, the second high-intensity white light pulses designed to disorientate and confuse intruders.
We can’t promise they will dispel the supernatural spirits and ghosts, but as for your neighborhood burglar, well they’re going to be in for a nasty shock! Together with Castellex, let’s celebrate these spooky times without worrying that burglars are also out to play!
