The latest innovations
mean now is the time to
invest in home security
for real peace of mind
ummer holiday season's drawing
closer - so it might be worth
giving a thought to your home
security. After all, there is
nothing worse than going away while
you are still worrying about the safety
of what you've left behind!
Last year alone, 370,000 burglaries
were reported in the UK. With these
statistics in mind, Neighbourhood
Watch partner and home security
expert ERA has compiled a handy guide
to the newest products on the market,
from sophisticated locks to cutting-edge
smart home technology.
It all starts with the front door. If
you have a PVCu door, check the
keyhole for three small stars - this
means that the cylinder lock on
your door has passed the highest
British Standards and will guard
against intruder attacks, such as lock
snapping. As well as a sign of a robust
lock, the three stars are also a great
visual deterrent to burglars.
If your keyhole does not have these
stars, it could be worth investing in a
new cylinder lock, such as the ERA
Fortress Cylinder. Designed to be the
ultimate defence against intruders, the
Fortress Cylinder allows you to rest safe
in the knowledge that your PVCu door is
as secure as it can be.
What's more, with a little bit of DIY
know-how, it's easy to change your own
cylinder lock - see erahomesecurity.com
for an instructional video.
But if you realise you need a hand
from the professionals, sign up for a
home security survey on the website
and a master locksmith will provide a
free survey and no-obligation quote.
By using a wireless connected alarm
system, utilising GSM technology, it's
easier than ever to monitor your home
with your smartphone. ERA's wireless,
modular miGuard Alarm Systems are
a great place to start if you're keen to
try out a range
ERA designs and
including HD cameras, motion sensors
and smoke detectors.
With easy DIY installation, miGuard
makes it simple to build up a bespoke
plug-and-play system with extra contact
numbers on your alert list if required, to
suit all your needs.
There's a real buzz around smart home
technology, with everything from
heating to lighting controlled by phones,
and home security is next in line.
Offering the very latest in keyless
technology, ERA's TouchKey system
will enable a user to unlock the door,
even when their phone is in their bag or
pocket, with a simple touch. For smart
security solutions, trust ERA.
