Why Our Alarm App Makes A Difference


We have seen a recent report from our partners at Risco on ‘THE USE OF DOMESTIC INTRUDER ALARMS IN GREAT BRITAIN.’

This information was based on the following:

The survey of 4,237 adults was carried out online between 4th and 6th January 2016.
All figures, unless otherwise stated, are from YouGov Plc. The figures have been weighted
and are representative of all GB adults (aged 18+).

3 key findings that attracted our attention was the following:

  1. TOO MANY HOUSEHOLDERS ARE LEAVING THEIR HOMES UNPROTECTED
    Only around a third (32%) of British householders have a burglar alarm yet, of these, less than
    half switch it on when they go on holiday. Why? Of those who never, or only occasionally set
    their alarm, 1 in 5 admit to simply forgetting to do so, or fear false alarms, while others find
    setting their alarm too complicated (13%).
  2. FEAR OF FALSE ALARMS IS PREVENTING USE AMONGST EXISTING OWNERS
    Householders (13%) – and pet owners in particular (14%) – are concerned about false alarms.
    This supports the use of alarms controlled by smartphone / tablet, which allow remote
    operation, reset & monitoring.
  3. FORGETFULNESS EXPLAINS FAILURE TO SWITCH ALARMS ON
    For busy householders, “I forgot’ explains much of the failure to set their burglar
    alarm (20%). This again plays to the strengths of an alarm operated by smartphone as it
    allows remote operation.

These 3 concerns can be mitigated by the use of our App which enables you to see the status of your alarm and allow you to set or reset your alarm.

As it’s an app on you smart phone you can do this anywhere in the world where you have internet access.
