You only have to watch the news or read a local newspaper to see that the crime statistics in Melbourne have recently skyrocketed and with home invasions at an all-time high it has been a very busy start to the year for us.
The Herald Sun recently ran a story on Burglary Hot Spot Suburbs In Melbourne with the top ten worst suburbs for criminal offences. It also states that there are nearly 100 burglaries every day in Victoria, that’s amounts to about 36,500 burglaries per year, it’s frightening and we know that homes with Security Systems are less likely to be targeted.
Lately, we have had a lot of requests from customers for their Security Systems to feature a Duress Alarm that can be activated from within their home in case of an emergency. Duress Alarms can be enabled from the Alarm Fob or Alarm Keypad by simply pressing a button, and can be configured to sound both the Alarm and Strobe Lights alerting family and neighbours and scaring off intruders. If your Alarm System is back-to-base monitored, it can also alert authorities to attend the Duress Alarm and that is a huge comfort to many of our customers. We believe the increased need for Duress Alarms is a direct result to what is happening in our community and people wanting to feel safer in their own homes.
We love being able to help people feel more secure and it is extremely rewarding to know that our customers are totally satisfied with our workmanship and high quality Security Systems.
If you need a Security System for your home or business, please give us a call on 0417384787 We’ll come and review your security requirements and can suggest a high-quality Security System within your budget.
