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:
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.
