Many people chose to introduce a new furry friend into the family during lockdown, with 11% of households welcoming a new pet during the pandemic.

Unfortunately, dog thefts also increased by a fifth during lockdown, with many breeds in high demand with criminals.

Dog Theft Awareness Day is held on the 14th of March. Now in its fourth year, The Stolen And Missing Pets Alliance (SAMPA) carries out this event to make dog-owners aware of the dangers and encourage them to keep pets safe.

The good news is that a security system can protect your dogs, as well as your property, from unscrupulous crooks.

How to protect your family, pets and home with a home security system installation

A home security system will keep your home safeguarded against the threat of dog theft. Here are some ways a home security system installation will offer protection.

Burglar home alarm systems

A burglar home alarm system is one of the simplest ways to protect against pet theft. Even the sight of an alarm on the front of your home can deter opportunist thieves from targeting your property.

A burglar alarm (also known as an intruder alarm) will emit a loud siren when a burglar opens a door or window in your property. This alerts people nearby and forces the criminal to flee. You can also choose to have your burglar home alarm system linked to a monitoring service, ideal if you are not in the area.

Wireless intercom systems

A wireless home intercom system lets you identify and speak to visitors before allowing them to enter your property. If you live in a flat or a property with a shared entryway, this type of system is ideal for checking who wants access to your building.

A video intercom system also captures any illegal activity, meaning if your dog is targeted, you will have evidence to give to the police.

Home CCTV system

A home CCTV system is one of the most effective ways of reducing crime and providing peace of mind. With CCTV, you can see everything going on in your property, from the garden to the garage.

As well as acting as a deterrent, a home CCTV system lets you access and share footage wherever you are. This makes CCTV a great option if your dog is at home and you are away in the office.
