"Safe as Houses", what does Tunstall suggest?

Home security is important all year round, but winter sees a 25% increase in burglaries as thieves take advantage of the longer nights*. Older people in particular are also targeted by distraction burglars, trying to gain access to valuables by deception.

Technology such as telecare can provide vital support, monitoring for intruders and providing reassurance that help is at hand 24 hours a day.

Systems can be tailored to individual need; here are just some of our solutions:

Personal trigger

Tunstall’s range of personal triggers allow the user to call for help simply by pressing the red button, which can alert 24 hour specialist monitoring centre. If the user is unsure about a caller at the door or sees someone acting suspiciously around their property, a trained operator can offer reassurance and advice, and contact a neighbour, family member or the police as appropriate.

Bogus caller button

Fitted near the door, the discreet bogus caller button can be used to call for assistance at a 24 hour monitoring centre if a stranger requests entry into the home. Operators can advise the user, and all calls are recorded and can provide evidence admissible in court.

Movement detector

Movement detector
Used to detect motion inside a property, such as an intruder, and silently alert the 24 hour monitoring centre where operators can take action.

Pressure mat

Pressure mat
Placed near an exit door under a doormat and programmed to raise an alert if they sense someone treading on them, raising the alarm if an intruder enters a property.

Flood detector

Raises an alarm if sinks or baths overflow, or if it detects water from a burst pipe, protecting both people and property.

Medication dispenser

Automatically provides access to medication over a 28 day period, providing audio and visual alerts to the user and/or their carer each time medication should be taken, and raising an alert if the user fails to access their medicines.
