October is a month of falling leaves, pumpkin spice, and home security. As we welcome the autumn season, we also embrace National Home Security Month (NHSM), an initiative launched in 2013 to raise awareness about the importance of securing our homes. At Security Masters Ltd, we’re proud to support this essential cause every year, offering expert advice and premium services to ensure your home stays safe. 

What is National Home Security Month? 

National Home Security Month is more than just protection for your physical possessions from burglary; it’s about safeguarding your cherished memories and providing peace of mind knowing that your family and loved ones are secure. This campaign provides invaluable advice, information, and support on how best to protect your property, and at Security Masters Ltd we’re here to help you implement these measures effectively. 

Our Focus Areas 


One key aspect to consider when securing your home is the quality of your locks. This is where the Kitemark comes into play. A symbol of safety and quality, the Kitemark guarantees that a lock has undergone rigorous testing and meets the highest industry standards. It’s a seal of approval that is recognised globally, assuring homeowners that their locks can withstand even the most determined intruders. 

At Security Masters Ltd, we strongly advocate for Kitemark-approved locks, delivering not just robust security but also the peace of mind that comes with knowing your home is well-protected. 

Security Audits 

As part of the NHSM 2023, we encourage you to take a moment to review your home security measures. Start by checking the safety of your neighbourhood using the postcode checker on the NHSM website. The data offers insight into the crime rates in your area, helping you understand the level of security you might need. 

But remember, security isn’t just about robust locks and alarm systems. It’s also about making informed decisions. For example, did you know that lock snapping is a common method used by burglars? Understanding such threats can help you better protect your home. We recommend reading the informative blogs on the NHSM website to stay updated on the latest security threats and prevention methods. 

Subtle Security 

Finally, let’s not forget that security doesn’t mean compromising on style. With advancements in technology, it’s possible to equip your home with security measures that blend seamlessly with your décor. Whether it’s safety window films that offer protection while enhancing the aesthetics of your windows or smart door locks that provide security without disrupting your home’s design, there’s no need to choose between style and security.
