Self Storage Blog

Going on holiday this year? Make sure your home is secure. We’ve got the run down on the latest home security products…

“We’re all going on a summer holiday, no more working for a week or two, sun and laughter on our summer holiday, no more worries for”… the burglars who’ve just got away with all your prize possessions.
Here at Big Yellow we hate to be pessimistic, but if you’d like to see your home the same way as you left it, then leaving the landing light on just isn’t enough to deter those baddies.
So don’t assume that prying eyes believe that you’re all huddled on the landing for days on end and get safeguarding your home. For some of us, home is where the heart is and no one likes theirs broken.
We’ve got the run down on the latest home security products:

1.There’s nothing worse than burglars getting away with their thievery, so it’s time to play big brother. With these multi-purpose day and night cameras, your front and back doors are covered, along with the entire inside of your home. This serious bit of kit is sure to scare even the hardest of criminals.

2.It’s the Peeping Tom’s that are usually the pinching culprits. So why not give their voyeuristic tendencies a show. With a Fake TV, a typical burglar will not risk prison when he sees the flickering glow that simulates the light output of a real television. These can be picked up for as little as £24.95.

3.If your neighbourhood is swarming with anti-social teenagers, then we’ve got just the thing to keep them at bay. The Mini Mosquito emits a high-pitched whine, which is only audible to teenagers. Sure, your home may be known as ‘The Haunted House’ from the ruckus causing kids, but we’d rather play ghost than come back to find that our belongings are now invisible.

4.For those who just can’t hack the computer technology, here’s a good old fashioned security gadget with a twist. Most of us use a heavy duty padlock to keep the predators away from the shed, but what’s to stop the thieves from snapping it off…a siren alarm padlock should do it. If this hardened steel alloy lock is tampered with, it scares the living daylights out of the thief, making the perpetrator the victim.

5.Now for our favourite. If you’ve got the funds or perhaps you’re preparing for a Zombie apocalypse, why not think about living in a concrete box? Better still; create a house with concrete walls that move and seal shut making the house impregnable using a remote control. The Safe House, designed by Robert Konieczny from KWK Promes in Poland, is the most secure home in the world…it doesn’t even need a mini mosquito.

If technology just isn’t your thing or you simply haven’t got the funds for a multi-million pound castle with a moat, then we’ll be your fortress. Get your valuables and store with us. Big Yellow Self Storage can offer you the space to house your gear for as little as £5 a week. Alternatively, these guys might do the trick:
