To try to answer the question contained in the title, we ended the last blog with an observation: there is a particular combination of factors which can make any defence useless. Today we will see what countermeasures can be adopted to try to avoid this possibility.
When it comes to security systems, protection methods and alarms, it is often said that, if thieves target a specific objective, sooner or later they’ll mange to carry out the theft. But is this statement true or not? To answer this we’ll need 3 articles on the blog.
Let’s start by making a comparison.
The term “lock” is commonly used to mean the entire mechanism which, by using a key, is able to open and close a door.
In reality this is only partly correct. There are, in fact, locks which actually consist of a single mechanism, like the majority of the double bit locks.Continue reading
In order to prevent undesired accesses, the European profile cylinder, combined with the lock, is currently the most complete and state of the art system. However, due to precisely this reason, there is a very wide range of demands on this particular cylinder.
In the previous article, we limited ourselves to presenting the features and uses of this modular system designed for the storage of valuables with controlled access. Today, on the other hand, we will describe in detail the technical features of the main module and the software in use. We will then go on to present the possible configurations indicating dimensions, number of compartments by configuration and weight.
The advanced management system Viro AMS (Advanced Management System) stems from the need to keep small valuables, such as keys and smartphones, in storage compartments and to allow access to various users through controlled management.
Metal doors and gates, iron doors, aluminium or PVC profiles: not all doors have the same needs. In fact, depending on the particular characteristics, a door will need a lock with features which will cover its weak points, enhance its strengths and adapt to its structure.Continue reading
Going to work by car? Using public transport? Or relying on a bicycle? The world is increasingly trying to be environmentally-sustainable and, especially in easily accessible city centres (such as Bologna), cycling is a “must”. One of the main curses for urban cyclists is that of thefts.
Stealing a bike is relatively easy because – unlike cars and motorcycles – they don’t have a number plate or a registered owner; so it is very important to protect it properly, to discourage theft as much as possible. Unfortunately, however, there are still many cyclists who lock up their bikes in such a clumsy manner that they make life particularly easy for thieves, even the less well equipped ones.
In this blog we propose solutions to some of the most common drawbacks which users in possession of electronic safes of various brands tend to face. Thanks to the requests of our users, we can provide a small useful guide which can be consulted by all those who are in the same situation at the moment or in the future. In this blog we have already talked about how to open a safe if the batteries are flat, if there are no external contacts and the emergency key has been lost. Continue reading
There are many advantages deriving from the use of an electronic safe, which allows you to keep various valuables secure, from family jewels to portable devices. It sometimes happens that these very useful security systems have problems which do not allow you to open and close the safe as usual. Continue reading
