The benefits of Multi-point locks

Multipoint locks are available in a wide range of shapes and sizes, but the name doesn’t mean much to many people right now. Put simply, multi-point locks include a centrally located deadbolt and a latch. This basically means that you can put the latch on, and leave the house without having to worry about being locked out.

You can however take the latch off, and leave the house without needing to worry about whether or not you’ve locked the door! It’s a really handy feature, especially if you’re in a hurry, but you can double lock the door, meaning you leave the house feeling assured by the extra safe locking mechanism. Some doors also include a chain, but you’ll see less of these being used nowadays, and most modern doors will just include a multi-point locking system.

Clever security gadget for holidays

Tourists are always at risk of being mugged; it doesn’t mater what country you’re in. To avoid being a victim, it’s best to spend a little bit of money on some lightweight and compact security products. Here’s 2 of the best:

Book safe – No this is not to keep your books safe, but simply to protect small items like keys, money, cameras and phones. It’s essentially a fake book, which allows you to keep valuables stored inside. It’s pretty nifty if you’re heading to the beach and fancy a dip in the water without worrying about your stuff.

Another quality security gadget is the door jammer. This can make you feel safe wherever you are. It’s portable, easy to fit, and it accredited by ‘Secured by Design’. It fits to any door, and prevents intruders walking in, so it’s ideal for those staying in hostels.

Butterfleye – The most innovative home security system

There’s a lot of talk about home security systems getting cheaper and cheaper, but that’s a good sign, and it shows that technology is moving on. Butterfleye is one of the most recent home security systems, but it’s very well priced, and very easy to use. The megapixel IP camera is smart enough to recognise you, meaning there are no false alarms. Alarms will only ring if the system senses somebody else other than you.

You can also add your family members and pets, or the neighbour who comes round to look after your pet whilst you’re away. If an intruder is spotted, Butterfleye uses your home WiFi system to alert you via an app. You can then decide what to o, whether that’s calling the police or driving straight home. Its battery life is phenomenal, and it can last for up to two weeks, and you can move the camera remotely. It’s certainly one of the cheapest and best home security systems on the market.
