How to Safeguard Your Household Contents Against Theft

how you can safeguard your home contents against theft with insurance

Ohmyhome

It’s well known that Singapore has one of the lowest crime rates in the world. But low crime doesn’t mean zero crime. In 2019, 35,115 cases were reported, of which 11,218 were theft or related violations1. That means your most valued possessions might not necessarily be safe even within your home.

How can you secure your home against theft?

Thieves often target homes that are obviously unoccupied or have poor security. To avoid making your flat attractive to burglars, here are some tips:

  1. Invest in sturdy locks and security grills for both your doors and windows. If you have more funds, a home security system with CCTV cameras indoors and  facing the front door is a great idea. And don’t forget to activate them!
  2. Don’t announce your travel plans on social media or other public channels. You never know if a thief may be canvassing your house.
  3. If you need to leave your house vacant, make sure it still looks lived-in. Ask a neighbour to collect your mail so that it doesn’t pile up on your doorstep. Consider installing automatic lights that go on and off at preset times so that it appears as if someone is home.

But what if you followed all these steps and still experienced a home break-in? You can add another layer of protection with Home Contents Insurance.
