Essential Install | Security DID YOU KNOW: Most burglaries take place between 10:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. Habitech provides access to the capable range of Dahua security products about is homeowners having their drives laid with gravel; it puts potential burglars off as they cannot approach the house without making noise. This type of idea got us thinking, that systems like a burglar alarms are an attempt to solve a problem after it has already happened. What you really want to do is prevent intruders considering a dwelling at all. There are other simple solutions you can recommend like special glass in key areas which cannot be broken from the outside.” Phil argues: “The trend these days is to move deterrents and defensive systems to the border of the property’s grounds; discrete cameras, IR beams and the like which pick up intruders before they get near the house. Cameras are much smaller these days and can see further and in more challenging conditions, so they can do their job without being obvious advertisements that the house is worth taking a look at. It’s also worth remembering that figures show that 80% of burglaries occur by gaining access through the front door, so this area is the most vulnerable. It’s also worth noting that wired is always going to be more secure than wireless, so bear that in mind with any type of security system.” Habitech distribution is home to the Dahua brand of cameras, designed to offer a solution to pretty much any resi application, internal and external.
