Our home security systems can embed a range of security features, from smartphone remote control to email alerts and video verification. However, these additional precautions become pointless if your security alarm code is too predictable. We’ve gathered a couple of tips to ensure that you can rely on your security code keeping your home safe and protected.
Avoid the obvious.
Particularly with families, it is common for simple codes to be chosen that they are easy to remember, such as a date of birth or the last 4 digits of a phone number. These can be accessed easily by strangers, so don’t risk choosing one this simple through lack of effort. Selecting a password such as 1111 or 1234 is blatantly not a good idea, although many people just use the system’s default code!
Are you looking forward to a well deserved summer holiday? We want to make sure you can relax and let go, whilst knowing that your house is safe and secure from burglars whilst you are chilling by the pool. Here are a couple of tips to give you peace of mind:
Spectrum have recently been asked to provide proposals for a new wire free intruder alarm system for an independent school for pupils ranging from Reception to Year 6. All of our engineers will need to be DBS cleared to ensure the safety and security of the pupils.
The system that we are proposing to install is the Texecom range of wire free products which employ their proprietary ‘Ricochet’ wireless ‘mesh’ network. Ricochet enabled wireless devices receive and repeat wireless transmissions from other devices. The size, scalability and range of the entire system are extended as wireless signalling is no longer limited by point-to-point communications. The range of a Ricochet enabled wireless system is greater than previous systems, with multiple devices capable of relaying messages to and from even the most remote locations in a building.
