Home insurer has commissioned a survey on home alarms and found some surprising results.
- London neighbours crowned most likely to NOT help with 40% saying they’d ultimately do nothing.
- 33% of us would do nothing to help if a neighbour’s burglar alarm went off and 7% of us would totally ignore the alarm, hoping it stops on its own.
- 18% of us still don’t secure our premises when going out.
If relying on neighbours to help or even just call the police is pot luck, why not consider upgrading to a smart alarm with a mobile app where the system will send a message to your phone if the alarm goes off. You can also add a CCTV camera system and view a live link with playback capabilities to visually check all is OK at your home or office.
