Using Rhyme to Combat Crime in Essex!

Date: 9 April 2019

Do you have a favourite poet? We have a new one. It's whoever came up with this short but sweet ditty at Essex Police!

Of course there's a serious message behind this short verse. If you have an alarm that you don't set you might as well not have it at all!

Why wouldn't you set your burglar alarm?

Life is busy and most families don't have the easy, relaxed mornings we see on cereal ads. It's easy to forget the alarm as you tear out of the door with school bags, sports kit and lunch boxes!

Maybe you're fed up of false alarms. If the bells ring at every passerby or in the middle of the night for no good reason... it's easier to leave the thing alone. Nobody wants to be that annoying neighbour, do they!

Night time isn't always peace and tranquility. Who wants the hassle of turning an alarm off just to grab a glass of water or nip to the loo in the small hours? Children that wander in the night should be able to wake mum or dad with a tap - not a blaring siren!

How to get back in tune

Mornings can be made easier with a smart alarm app on your mobile. As soon as you get that "Did I or didn't I..?" feeling, simply log in and check! If you did set the alarm, you get a pat on the back. And if you didn't - do it right there with a tap on the phone!

False alarms can be a sign of faulty equipment or botched settings. The way to avoid or fix these is regular TLC. A properly maintained home alarm will keep your investment working well. You get a secure home and happy neighbours!

Are your family or pets stopping you from using your home security? Think about upgrading to a zonal or pet-friendly alarm. These leave selected areas of the house free to roam while safeguarding others. Easy to control and easy to live with!
