In response to this situation, OneAlarm has launched a new inexpensive home security range that offers a variety of easily installed products, as well as a reasonably priced monitoring service.
The latest Home Office crime statistics reveal a worrying increase in domestic break ins, with offence rates increased by 14 per cent, year on year.

Calvin Beckford, a security industry expert, has thirty years policing experience with the Metropolitan Police. Calvin is well-known in police crime prevention and academic circles.
