Securesightâ€™s AP08 is a new concept that provides double the security of a conventional padlock; when the padlock is tampered with twice within five seconds, the alarm will sound with a loud (110dB) two-tone siren.
This siren continues for ten seconds, which is a great deterrent to the would be thief or opportunist burglar.
The novel design makes it very difficult for the sound to be muffled and the siren is loud enough to put of all but the most determined.
