With summer just around the corner and the warmer weather setting in, you’re going to be spending a lot of time outdoors leaving doors and windows open to get fresh, cool breezes through your home. But leaving your home open may increase the risk of break-ins and create an easy way for intruders to gain entry into your home.
Exceed is here to help you with 10 top tips to improve your home security:
1 - Use key-operated locks on doors and windows – and don’t hide spare keys under doormats or in obvious places for burglars to find them easily
2 - Install security screens on all doors to keep your family safe
3 - Install window security stays to increase security, natural safe ventilation and prevent children falling from high windows
4 - Install hinge bolts to stop doors from being lifted out of their frames
5 - Upgrade beads and rubbers to hold any glass in place
6 - Install digital deadlocks so you no longer need to remember your keys when you leave your home and grant short term access to friends or Airbnb guests
7 - If you have an alarm system, make sure it is working properly
8 - Keep plants trimmed around doors and windows and install sensor lights or CCTV cameras
9 - Don’t leave valuable items like keys out in easy view for opportunistic thieves
10 - If you’re going away on holidays, make your home look occupied – leave the TV or radio playing, set lights to come on with a timer and ask a neighbour to collect your mail and take care of bins
Being aware of potential security risks and taking action early is the best way to keep your home and loved ones safe.

I haven't posted for a few weeks while filtering was on hold to attend the National Dragon Boating Champs in the Sth Island. And I can confirm the 3 Bay Teams did us proud bringing home Gold medals and trophys galore.
While there, I was fortunate to walk the Routeburn Track in great weather and stunning vistas. My trusty water bottle could be filled from numerous alpine streams along the way... One of the few places left in NZ where the water isn't contaminated and treated. Simply gorgeous. All back to work now.
