PostPosted: Sun Jun 25, 2017 7:59 am    Post subject: Locks and Alarm Reply with quote

Came home last night to find we had been burgled. Waiting for police to turn up and then we can start the clean up and determine what exactly has been taken (luckily the bastards were spooked and its only our bedroom that has been done over).

One thing I know they took is the box with all my spare keys in it. So I know the F*****s have my spare 993 keys, fob and red fob as well as the garage door key.

So question is what to do? replace all the locks? get a new alarm fitted?

Recommendations of what and where to get things done greatly appreciated.

Right now to sort out locks on the house.

Cheers
Bob

Very sorry to see that Bob.

Let me know if I can help with anything. I'll leave it to others with more experience to comment by PM on possible solutions.

Change garage door lock or consider changing to a more secure door. Get house and garage alarmed if it isn't already. Change number plate on car ( they may know the reg and see it parked up one day). Invest in CCTV.

Wise work Jack.

Garage door is under a year old and is secure. they didn't get the remotes for the door.

We have alarm which spooked the bastards, considering some form of CCTV.

Car is now off site and won't go back until the locks are changed. I like the idea of changing number plate, but she is associated with my house so I don't think it will make much difference. Asking Mrs T to sanction another number plate might be a bit of a task too.

cheers
Bob
