Winter safety: Why you should protect your home now

Sicherheit im Winter: Warum Sie Ihr Zuhause jetzt schützen sollten

Winter is in full swing, and as we look forward to cozy evenings and the New Year, there is one important issue that cannot be overlooked: the security of our homes. In Germany, as in many other parts of the world, the burglary rate increases significantly in the winter months. Early darkness offers burglars more opportunities to remain unnoticed. That's why it's more important now than ever to think about effective security measures.

Burglary rates in winter

According to police crime statistics, we record a significant increase in burglaries in the winter months. Perpetrators use darkness to their advantage, highlighting the importance of good outdoor lighting and visible security measures.

Prevention is key

Many people in Germany take additional safety measures in winter. These include security cameras, improved locking systems and motion detectors. Modern smart security systems offer additional convenience through remote monitoring and control, allowing you to keep an eye on your home even when you are away from home.

Fire hazard in winter

In addition to break-ins, the risk of house fires also increases in winter. Space heaters, fireplaces, and candles can be dangerous if not used properly. It is crucial to install and regularly maintain smoke and CO detectors to ensure your safety.

Check insurance coverage

The number of insurance claims related to burglaries and fire damage is higher in winter. Review your insurance policies to ensure you are adequately covered in the event of an incident.

Technology as an ally

Technological advances, such as camera surveillance and smart doorbells, are playing an increasing role in home security. These systems not only provide protection, but also a new level of control and convenience for homeowners.
