As we get into the spirit of Halloween, it’s time to get ready and prepare yourself for the possibility of a zombie attack! Time is running out… so make sure you read our top tips on how to protect your home against any unwanted demons!

Catch the corpses on camera

It’s essential that in the event of a zombie apocalypse you should be on high alert, in order to know if there are zombies surrounding your house.  The best way to monitor the situation outside without exposing your location is by setting up an outdoor CCTV camera. The ABUS Outdoor IR Bullet Camera is a weatherproof outdoor camera which will monitor the smallest of details, even in the dark with its infrared night vision function, making it a perfect option during a zombie apocalypse. https://www.keytekshop.co.uk/product/abus-tvac19100-wlan-720p-outdoor-ir-bullet-camera-app

Illuminate your enemies

Flood lights can be used to illuminate those sauntering around outside your house, without giving away your position like shining a flashlight out the window would. Motion activated flood lights can startle anything, from foxes to burglars, so the Era LED Security Light with built in CCTV should have no problem scaring away a few undead enemies.   https://www.keytekshop.co.uk/product/era-led-security-light-cctv

Stop zombies in their tracks

Having hordes of zombies climbing onto your property can be unnerving, and while putting up a barbed wired fence is an option, it is also unsightly and takes time and effort to put together, therefore an easier and cheaper option is the use of Prikka Strips. Prikka Strips are strips of pointed cones that can be fitted on top of fences, gates, pipes and walls. A Prikka Strip is designed to deliver maximum discomfort, and will most definitely make zombies and other intruders stop in their tracks. https://www.keytekshop.co.uk/product/prikka-strip

Kick proof your doors

Zombies won’t go through the hassle of picking your locks; they will simply kick down the doors. Conventional wooden door frames will splinter and split open as a result of a forced attack. The Kick Stop Staple Bar strengthens and reinforces the door frame around a rim lock or cylinder nightlatch. Fitting is simple and it provides successful additional security every time the door is closed and locked.  https://www.keytekshop.co.uk/product/kick-stop-staple-bar-large

Safety first!

Zombies are known for wreaking havoc and going to extreme measures to cause distress. Just in case of an emergency it is essential to have a survival kit consisting of first aid, emergency food and water supplies, a fire extinguisher and a fire blanket, both of which are available at keytekshop.co.uk. A fire extinguisher, being very heavy, can also be used to defend yourself and your family if necessary.  https://www.keytekshop.co.uk/product/kidde-fire-blanket https://www.keytekshop.co.uk/product/kidde-fire-extinguisher
