Alert Pal The Ultimate Plug And Play Security Device

Filed under: Burglar Alarms — admin @ 3:57 pm

Burglaries tend to happen quickly, well, the most opportunistic ones do… An open window or poorly secured door is noticed and within minutes, some person(s) are in and out of the property and off with someone else’s valuables.

In these instances, it’s very unlikely the offenders will have been spotted and the likelihood of being caught and the goods returned very slim indeed.

Now, what if you could install an affordable security device in just a matter of minutes which could send you images of a break-in of your property in progress direct to your phone. Not only that, it will also let you hear live audio, works off it’s own power plus it’s extremely portable, so can be used in garages, caravans, boats, workshop or farm buldings as well as in the home and office buildings.

Quite impressive, eh?

This is why at CPP, we want to introduce to you, the ultimate in plug and play home security devices – The AlertPal!

The AlertPal is a complete GSM Fire and Security System and because of its portability can be used almost anywhere. It’s very easy to set up, and works from a PAYG Sim card on either O2 – ORANGE or the VODAFONE network. Simply install the 2 door or window detectors, the smoke detector, configure the AlertPal system by sending a few simple text messages to the camera and you’re good to go.

Illuminating Home Security

Filed under: Burglar Alarms,Home Security — admin @ 12:29 pm

Most people have some type of security for their homes, offices or work sheds whether it’s a simple burglar alarm, door and window protection or even one or two security lights. These are often enough to deter opportunistic thieves from your premises. If, however, you wish to beef up your own home security measures one of the best and most effective ways is to install a driveway alarm.

When we mention driveway alarms we automatically think of the large properties that sit well back from the main thoroughfare, the homes with the very large gates and long drives, when, in reality, driveway alarms can be used as an extra security protection in any property.

How many people, through the years, have had enough of the daily toil of working for someone else and decided that enough is enough and now is the right time to start their own business. You have the idea, you even know where you are going to get the materials, heck you even have a business plan, now all you need is premises. With office and factory space, in some towns and cities, becoming extremely costly, some entrepreneurs are having to look a bit further than they originally hoped, and are renting empty farm outhouses and sheds.

Renting these types of premises may work out cheaper but their remote position may cause you some distress. How can you tell that someone is approaching after all many farm roads have a long drive. The Professional Long Range Perimeter Alarm with up to 1Km Range new from Crime Prevention Products will ensure that you are always aware that someone is approaching your work place.

Early Detection Alarms

Filed under: Burglar Alarms — admin @ 10:07 am

As we already know the better prepared we are, the better we adapt to handling a particular situation. The same can be said when it comes to your home or businesses security. We all know that thieves have no preferred ‘working’ times, they will operate during the day as well as at night – no 9 till 5 for them. That’s why it’s better being prepared for any given situation happening at any time of the day, as this will give you the upper hand and allowing you to take the required actions.

Home alarms are great at warning you that someone has entered your premises, however, what if you are already in your premises working or sitting watching your television, wouldn’t you want to know as soon as possible that someone is approaching. Early detection alarms such as Driveway alarms are a great way of alerting you that someone is approaching your property but if you have a large driveway this can sometimes be a bit of a problem as some have a limited range.

New to Crime Prevention Products is the Ranch Wireless Driveway Alarm which has a massive 300 metre range ensuring that even the largest of approaches can be protected. It’s Alert Bleeper will sound for about 5 seconds every time the sensor picks up movement – making you aware of arrivals and deliveries etc.. you can even set the Alert Bleeper to only respond during the day or during the night or both – so if you do have an unwelcome prowler you can clock them no matter what time of the day it happens to be.

Wireless Burglar Alarms help prevent a rise in burglary rates during hot weather

Filed under: Burglar Alarms — admin @ 10:59 am

Police are warning of an increase in burglary during heatwaves. Burglars are cashing in on the hot weather, leaving sun-seekers to count the cost. Windows and doors left open or unlocked while residents are out or even in the back garden, are an invitation to criminals, police have warned.

There were 12 house break-ins across Middlesbrough last weekend and the majority of houses broken into were unsecured, unlocked and without alarms.  Items stolen included computers and other electrical equipment, jewellery, purses containing cash and bank cards, and even a child’s car seat.

The haul from one house in Margaret Street, North Ormesby, included a car, after a two-in-one burglary. Now, Cleveland Police are urging householders to “alarm it lock it or lose it”.

bt_vp1000_wireless_house_alarm_40_offWith modern Burglar Alarms like the Wireless Burglar Alarm. available by mail order, a property can be easily protected and because they are wireless, may be fitted in about 2 hours by the average householder. With monitoring by BT costing only 16p a day, you will always know if your alarm is sounding and arrange the appropriate action from wherever you are, even away on holiday!

The monitoring service even informs you of power failure or interruption with the telephone line.

Middlesbrough CID, said: “It’s frustrating for us to learn of the figures for last weekend’s breakins – we repeatedly run campaigns and operations targeting house burglary and putting burglars behind bars. Generally the message is getting across and we are seeing good results. ”

Terry Rattee, Managing Director of Crime Prevention Products added: “With the recent warm weather I can only assume people are going out to enjoy the sunshine and forgetting to lock their doors & windows, or having no alarm on the property thereby giving opportunist thieves the perfect chance to take the householders’ property.”

House or Room Alarms help deter burglaries in University Towns

Filed under: Burglar Alarms — admin @ 3:26 pm

Mothers and fathers, as well as potential students, take note. The most crime-ridden university city in the United Kingdom (outside the capital) is Nottingham, according to figures published last week.

The town, once known for its links to Robin Hood, contains the highly rated universities (Nottingham and Nottingham Trent), yet the number of burglaries and robberies is higher than in any other provincial UK city.

Nottingham recently acquired a name for being the gun capital of the UK, a name its citizens reject. It is, however, the burglary capital of the country, according to new statistics compiled by the Good University Guide from the Home Office. Students, in particular, are vulnerable to being burgled.

Runner-up in the crime stakes for university cities is Manchester, followed by Liverpool, Bristol and Leeds. The safest places in which to study are Canterbury, Bath and Lancaster.

keyfob_pir_intruder_alarmUniversities are no longer the places of safety they once were with around one in three students falling victim to crime each year. However, it is fairly straightforward to help prevent thefts from the rooms occupied by students by going to an online site where you will be able to buy a Room/Shed/Garage Alarm for as little as £24.95 which will sound a 130 decibel ear shattering alarm when someone enters an unnoccupied room.

If you are sharing accomodation with others, it works out quite cheap to purchase a couple of these alarms to cover the hallway and perhaps the communal lounge area and is easily turned on and off with the keyfob provided. You may even buy additional Keyfobs so that each person sharing the accomodation has one! Remember young people aged 16 to 24 are three times more likely to be victims of crime.

Thieves breaking in to university accommodation that houses, say, five students could net a tidy haul of five TV sets, five stereos and five computers. And such items can be sold on easily, providing rich pickings to any burglar.

That is why both the Home Office and the National Union of Students urge students to take out insurance and report crimes. And it is also why universities in the UK are now putting a lot of effort into improving security on campus by, for example, ensuring halls of residence have proper locks and lighting the campus properly

This year’s Good University Guide table shows that the positions of most of the universities has not changed since last year. Nottingham had the highest crime statistics of all cities last year, and Manchester was the runner-up last year, too.
