Best Burglary Systems for the Elderly
We all know that members of the older generation tend to get a bit flustered when it comes to technological gadgets, so burglary systems with number keypads and entrance/exit codes are probably not the best choice available to them. Thankfully the revolution in technical gadgetry has meant that there are now new style burglary systems that don’t require the user to remember any numbers or words at all.
Key fob burglary systems
Key fob alarm systems are perfect for the older generation because all it takes to activate and deactivate the alarm system is a swipe of a special key fob. Each key fob is linked to a specific house alarm system and will only activate or deactivate the particular system they are linked with.
So, if two people live in a property then two key fobs can be linked to the alarm system. Alternatively additional key fobs can be linked and given to neighbours or relatives as extra security, just in case one of the original fobs gets lost. What’s more there are no identifying marks on the key fobs, which means if they are lost and then subsequently found by a stranger there is no way to find out the address of the alarm system they are linked with.
But key fob burglary systems aren’t the only way of helping the older generation to feel confident with their new technology.
Monitored burglary systems
Another type of burglary system that is ideal for older people is a monitored system. Monitored burglary systems are exactly what they say they are – alarm systems that are constantly monitored by an external company. This means that not only is the property owner informed when their house alarm is activated (or a designated key-holder if preferred), the alarm system is constantly monitored for faults and breakdowns that an older person might not notice.
Put the two burglary systems together and you have the perfect security solution for elderly relatives, people with limited sight and those who simply aren’t comfortable with lots of technology that they have to maintain and monitor themselves. In fact, a lot of people today would no doubt prefer to do nothing more than swipe a key fob as they leave the property and swipe it again when they return and know that their alarm system has successfully been activated. So in other words, key fob burglary systems really are suitable for any age group and any type of property.
