Home security

Over a third of UK adults surveyed don't currently take any home security measures, according to our latest consumer poll.

We found:

  • One in four people don’t lock their doors when at home
  • Almost a fifth (18%) would notify their community via Facebook group if they or their alarm system were to detect someone unsuccessfully trying to enter their property
  • Almost two thirds (63%) would notify the police immediately if they or their alarm system were to detect someone unsuccessfully trying to enter their property
  • Just over half (51%) would take a photo as evidence if they saw someone acting suspiciously in their neighbourhood (e.g. hanging around, taking pictures of houses, marking houses e.g. with chalk etc.).
