Burglary – could happen to anybody

Even George Galloway has had to tighten security in his London home this week, after a homeless person apparently broke in and took up residence in a bedroom.  The Respect MP may own a three storey £1.4 million home, but size is relative when it comes to someone breaking and violating your personal space.

It’s natural to leave the house for work in the morning and think; did I lock the door?  Did I close the window?  Did I leave my valuables out on display?

Our homes are full of desirable objects – whether it’s the 50 inch plasma telly or Grandma’s family heirlooms – some things you just can’t replace if they were stolen.  Burglary causes heartache, leaving the home owner distressed by the ordeal.

Clearly, home security is really important, and sometimes just locking our doors and windows may not be deterrent enough.  Technology has taken a leap forward and it is possible to be alerted, as soon as an intruder breaks in, even if you’re not at home.

VERA gateway technology combined with the use of Z-Waves, is the ultimate combination for high end, but simple technology which can protect your home.

The VERA Gateway is a central unit that manages all your Z-Wave devices.  If an intruder enters your home, then VERA can send you an alert via email or text automatically.  VERA will know this, as either the door, window sensor or motion detector will have triggered an alarm by sensing the intruder.

Another addition to your wireless security solution is the Z-Wave Fortrezz Siren & Strobe Alarm which is a tamper proof, and gives off an intense strobe light and loud audible alarm.

Who needs a cricket bat when a Smart phone and Z-Wave technology keeps you in safe hands?
