Yale Door and Window Solutions Supports National Home Security Month 2021


Yale is proud to sponsoring National Home Security Month (NHSM) for its ninth consecutive year.

Taking place every October, the objective of NHSM 2021 is to raise awareness of home security and the importance of taking precautions to ensure homes and loved ones are protected.

The campaign runs throughout the month, coinciding with the start of autumn when the nights start to draw in and the clocks go back.

The ONS Nature of Crime report revealed 76% of domestic burglaries in England and Wales were through a door and in fact 24% of cases where entry was gained, the door was unlocked.1 Statistics such as this reinforce the need for awareness around home security.

November was revealed to be the month when most burglaries take place2. So, when the dark nights descend, it’s important to have home security measures in place, giving peace of mind that your home is protected against any unwanted visitors.

Paul Atkinson, Managing Director at Yale, comments: “NHSM is a great initiative to get involved with, it takes place at a pivotal period for security sales when people consider upgrading doors and windows. This presents a lucrative opportunity to installers and fabricators alike to raise awareness and engage with customers.

“Security products need to be safe, reliable and high-quality, performing exactly the roles required of them on doors or windows. We believe Yale is the best option, delivering not only products you know you can trust – but solutions at the cutting-edge of the latest technology and trends.”

To ensure homeowners are prepared for the winter months ahead, NHSM 2021 will be serving up seasonal tips and advice, to let homeowners know how they can reduce their risk of being targeted by burglars.

Everything from smart alarms, smart security cameras and smart door locks to the importance of having a secure front door and the latest security standards will be covered throughout the month.
