IM Company, GlazeAlarm Are Raising Awareness For National Home Security MonthNovember 1, 2016
To coincide with National Home Security Month, the Ipswich-based inventor behind the revolutionary GlazeAlarm® and the team are doing their utmost to raise awareness for home security.
According to statistics in 2015 there were over 400,000 burglaries in the UK. Last year, Ipswich saw over 800 burglaries, with the majority taking place between September and December.
There are many reasons why this type of crime increases in the winter months, with Bonfire Night, Halloween and the Christmas holiday all being events when we tend to leave our homes empty.
GlazeAlarm is on a mission to tackle issues of home security, with the invention of an alarm designed to alert homeowners of a potential break-in via their smartphone or tablet, before the intruder actually enters the property. The GlazeAlarm sensor is built into a double or triple-glazed unit at the point of manufacture and offers users peace of mind that their property is secure. In the event of a breakage, a local alarm is triggered immediately and the user is notified wherever they may be.
Ian Branagan, CEO of Armco Key Security Limited, the team behind of the innovative GlazeAlarm product, comments: “It is worrying to hear that there were over 400,000 burglaries last year. Your home is where you need to feel the safest and it astonishes me that so many people fall victim to this crime.”
“You don’t just lose possessions you can also lose sense of security, knowing that a stranger has invaded your private space where your family live and sleep. There are many precautions that we can take, we feel that a technology like GlazeAlarm could play a significant role in deterring intruders.”
The GlazeAlarm product has recently been showcased at the world-renowned Glasstec trade fair for glass production, processing and products, and gained a lot of interest from potential investors and partners.
Mr Branagan continues: “We invented GlazeAlarm to be used in both residential and commercial premises as a preventative measure. It is the most robust and tamper-proof glass-break security solution available today that allows users to manage the safety and security of their properties remotely.”
