National Home Security Month – Week 5 – Future Home SecurityOctober 29, 2013
The final week of National Home Security Month is now upon us, this week we are looking into the future and how home security will evolve over the next few years.
Distraction burglary is now affecting thousands of UK households every year, a technique that has been developed as home security has improved. Home office figures show that 11500 homes are affected each year by bogus callers gaining access to a property, therefore, seeing who is calling at your door has never been so important. An electronic door viewer allows easy viewing anyone who calls at the front door, most can also take and save a picture of the caller, this can be stored for later use if required.
Home electronic door locks are now commonplace within the UK market, allowing for simple entry into a property. Digital door locks allow homeowners to control access to their house with a pin code of their choice, thus removing the chance of forgetting or losing a set of keys. A Temporary pin code can also be used with digital door locks, allowing other people access to the home for a limited time period, without the need to collect a set of keys or change any locks.
