In the last episode of this “serial blog”, again with the aim of seeking the correct answer to the question stated in the title, we reached the conclusion that unfortunately there are many low-cost products on the market (often imported from the Far East) which do not offer any real reduction in the risk of theft. Today we will see, on the other hand, what considerations must be made before choosing the right protection according to the actual needs.
The choice of lock (and, therefore, the cylinder) for the entrance door is often the most carefully considered, because it has the task of defending the main access to the house. The lock must be as strong as possible to resist any type of attack and the European profile cylinder is currently the most complete and cutting-edge system for the role it must cover: in combination with the lock, to prevent unwanted access.
However, although one cylinder might appear to be the same as another, details are hidden inside which denote a good quality cylinder, which is able to offer security and reliability over time.
We are about to reveal them to you!
In what ways will artificial intelligence change the spaces we live in and its security?
“Domotics”, meaning the science of home automation, has already been spoken about in recent years. Increasingly advanced technologies will contribute towards safeguarding our home and a “virtual secretary” will also arrive in Italy to remind us to lock the door, switch on the burglar alarm and much more.
When we talk about security systems for houses, we mean all the measures that can be taken to better protect our homes from unwanted access.
We can talk about mechanical or electronic locking systems, used singly or combined, always paying attention to exploit them to the fullest.
There is also the widespread idea that, by following the advice on how to prevent thefts, such as minor measures which can be found online, also diffused by traditional media, general security is increasing.
What are the most common indications in this regard? And why are they not always appropriate?
Valentine’s Day, which is celebrated by lovers around most of the world, is upon us.
Its origin dates back to the ancient Romans, whilst the recurrence, as we know it today (with a more commercial connotation), spread worldwide mostly during the last century. Each country observes different customs to celebrate the day, although the recurring theme is always that of love.
For this occasion, we will talk about our padlocks in an unusual way, not in terms of security, but in the more “romantic” sense of the product.
In today’s blog we would like to respond to the numerous requests from individuals, condominium administrators, but also companies, who write to us asking which is the most suitable electric lock for an installation on very heavy doors or iron gates.
There are often complaints that maintenance or replacement must be performed more than necessary following frequent breakdowns of common electric locks (those fitted with latch and ejector, which we usually see applied to pedestrian walkways), because they are “tired” by the frequent openings / closures.
Owning one’s own business requires many resources, as well as numerous precautions regarding security, since the goods inside the shop, especially those of great value, can remain “unattended” for some time, especially at night.
It is therefore necessary, in order not to run the risk of losing significant valuable items, following a theft, to thoroughly study a plan to secure your shop.
Installing a video surveillance system at the entrances to a house or in a shop may appear to be an innovative and decisive security solution.
However, if we study this in depth there are many aspects which are often not taken into consideration, before investing in a system of this type, which may even prove to be quite costly.
