Here’s our guide to the best security equipment for your home or business on a budget of £100 or less, covering:
- Wifi Security cameras
- Smart Doorbells
- Locks & safes
1) Wifi security cameras - from £69
Wifi security cameras are the cheapest and easiest way to keep an eye on your property. Most wifi security cameras are plug-in-and-play and connect directly to an app, meaning that you can get your security camera set up and running in a matter of minutes - and can easily view your property remotely using your mobile phone.
2) Smart DoorBells - from £99
3) Electronic safe - from £45
For those really precious possessions you don’t want to go missing / walk out of the house, we’d recommend installing an Electronic safe - providing somewhere to stash your valuables.
The key decision is to choose the size of safe, and also where you’re going to install it / hide it. We’d suggest a small or mid-sized safe (with electronic entry as well as key over-ride), and installing it under your stairs / cellar / bottom of a cupboard.
4) Secure your outside equipment - from c.£30
Outdoor equipment (like bikes, lawn-mowers & the like) is increasingly targeted by thieves - as they’re easy to lift when no-ones looking. Make it more difficult by securing your outdoor kit with a mix of security anchors, cable and locks. Check out a selection of outdoor security equipment here >>
5) Lock stuff with a quality lock - from £4.50
It’s amazing how useful a good lock is. There’s a tonne of different options when it comes to locks - we’d recommend either a multi-purpose brass padlock (£4.49) or outdoor weather resistant lock (£7.99). See a selection of locks here >>
