* NHSM-10.jpg
The awareness campaign, National Home Security Month (NHSM) is back from 1st October celebrating its tenth year of helping homeowners across the UK prioritise their home security. With lead support from home security brand, Yale, the aim of this year’s campaign is to ensure home security is at front of mind when prepping for the vulnerable autumn period.

When the clocks go back, we often see a spike in burglary attempts across the UK, as opportunists make use of the darker nights to operate under the cover of darkness. And this is why NHSM runs throughout the entirety of October, aiming to raise awareness of the importance of upgrading home security at this time of year.
