Thumbs up Cheap Burglar Alarm

Given the number of break ins that are happening recently in Turkey I have found a cheap but useful alarm to help keep you safe in your apartment while you are there on holiday. It's priced at just £3.49 plus £3.90 postage



Product Features

* 105db alarm
* Colour, Design or packaging may vary
* 110 degree sensor
* Passive infrared motion detection, Two remote control keyring fobs
* Battery operated, NO batteries required

It might not give you all year round protection but it will give you peace of mind while you are there on holiday

Re: Cheap Burglar Alarm

I am intrigued that is "battery operated" yet "no batteries required"

Haha that's what I thought too when I read it!

LOL we bought one of these for our apt after a break in, they're very good, not a good idea to forget it's still on when you get up after a late night in pub with a bit of a hangover...DOH.............Mags

Re: Cheap Burglar Alarm

We have one of those and it just gives me peace of mind that they won't get up the stairs without me hearing them. It is a bit cheap and I'm not sure how long it will last but it is very loud. My biggest problem with it is forgetting the little remote control fob as I go downstairs in the morning.
Last time I was out I also invested in a nice strong pole to put in the track of the sliding door. Someone here suggested it a while back and funnily enough a friend who used to be in the door and window trade suggested the same thing.

Re: Cheap Burglar Alarm

trouble with that alarm is it might be ok for a house ,but if you get up in the night in a apartment for a whizz ,you will prob set it off . The best one i reckon is what i have & that is the window vibration alarms that actually go off the second someone tries to force a window or a door from the outside . at least with them fitted to each window or door [you can see them stuck on the glass from the outside ] they will go off before they actually get into the property .They are not expensive & they have a on /off switch on each one . Got mine from B&Q. lets face it ,you want to deter them from actually getting in.

Re: Cheap Burglar Alarm

THINK LIKE A BURGLAR
Professional or amateur burglars will break into your home, if there is an opportunity. Be prepared and fight back.
Getting robbed is an awful feeling and makes you think that you could have done more to prevent it.
By definition, the crime of burglary is a non-confrontational property crime that occurs when we are not at home.
Living in a house takes more places and things to think about when talking security. There are lots of break-in points to consider.
• Use a secondary blocking device on all sliding glass doors
• Keep the latch mechanism in good condition and properly adjusted
• Keep sliding door rollers in good condition and properly adjusted
• Use anti-lift devices such as through-the-door pins or upper track screws
• Use highly visible alarm decals, beware of dog decals or block watch decal
• Secure all accessible windows with secondary blocking devices
• Block accessible windows open no more than 6 inches for ventilation
• Make sure someone cannot reach through an open window and unlock the door
• Make sure someone cannot reach inside the window and remove the blocking device
• Use anti-lift devices to prevent window from being lifted out
• Use crime prevention or alarm decals on ground accessible windows
• Use curtains or blinds over any windows or doors that are easy to see into
• Keep expensive equipment and items away from your windows.
• Install locks or secondary security devices on all accessible windows so they can't be opened far enough for someone to crawl through from the outside.
• Make sure garage lights can be turned on from inside the house so you never have to walk into a dark garage.•
• Use the safe everyday so it becomes routine
• Burglars often target the elderly, so be a friend and keep an eye out for local retirees.
• Fire doors are meant to let a person safely exit a building in case of fire — not to let a burglar safely enter it. Keep your hardware updated and the doors closed.
• When living with multiple people, make sure everyone understands the importance of home security. It only takes one person to leave everyone else vulnerable. But don't rely on others; keep your private possessions locked away.
• If you have had a bad experience already with a crook — learn from it — don't just think bad luck won't strike twice!
