Protect yourself

Protect your pets

A new pet in your home quickly becomes part of the family. It is no wonder you care about its safety, and protect its life and health. This is easy if your pet stays at home all the time, but things get more complicated with dogs or cats. They are quite independent and sometimes a moment of inattention is enough to lose sight of them. You might want to look for solutions to prevent this – and GPS for pets is the most effective one. How does it work?

The pet wears a GPS device, and the owner has a dedicated app to track its location. As the application is mobile, you can track your pet in real time. You can also specify the control area (e.g. your property). As soon as your pet leaves it, you will get an alert on your phone.

GPS is a very comfortable, useful and, most importantly, effective tool for protecting your pet. It will give you a peace of mind and ensure your pet is safe.

Protect your house

A house is not just a place where you live and a building that satisfies your basic needs. It is also a place where you spend time with your family, experience the joys and sorrows of life, and keep the items that are valuable to you. It should give you a sense of safety and guarantee that your family and property are well protected.

A good alarm system will effectively protect your home from burglars. There are two types of alarm system available: wired and wireless.

A wired system is normally installed at the construction stage, as it requires cabling to be laid out. Due to its high effectiveness, it should be the preferred option. Of course, you can also install a wired system at a later stage. However, this might require carrying out works affecting the structure of the building.

A wireless system can be installed at any time and does not require the drilling of walls to lay out the cables. It is also possible to combine the two solutions: you could have a wired system installed during construction and add wireless devices later on.

In this section, you will find the latest trends and solutions in home protection and surveillance.

Protect your car

Apart from the house or apartment, for many families the car is their most valuable property. Of course, you want to protect it against theft and damage. The two most popular solutions at the moment are car alarms and GPS.

A car alarm system includes not just anti-theft sensors to detect if a window is broken or the car is hit, towed or lifted, but also an anti-hijacking feature and an immobiliser. The former immobilizes the vehicle if it has been taken over by an unauthorized individual, and the latter prevents its being started.

A complementary (or separate) solution is a GPS tracker installed in a hidden place that reports the current location of the car. Thieves might use GPS jammers, so some GPS trackers feature anti-jamming systems that notify the car owner of any attempt to obscure the signal. Some of the more advanced trackers also come with a microphone that records conversations in the car and a feature to trigger the alarm if the car leaves a specific area.

There are also companies offering GPS tracker monitoring services: dedicated personnel monitor your vehicle 24 hours a day, and if anything happens, such as it being stolen, an intervention group is quickly dispatched.

Protect your family

The family is the most precious gift of life for many of us. We value the life, health, happiness and safety of our families above everything else. We care for our loved ones as best we can, and modern technology makes this easier.

One of the tools that can help you to protect your family is a personal GPS tracker. It gives you continuous access to location information concerning someone, and not just the geographic coordinates: it provides you with the specific town, street, and even the number of the building. You can also specify the area that the person you are tracking is not supposed to leave; if they leave the area, you will receive a text message notification. You can also analyse the route history of the person you track. And, most importantly, the tracked person will be able to send you a notification in case of emergency. To sum up: if the life and health of your family is your priority, make sure you do everything to keep them safe.

Protect your data

The 21st century is the century of technology. We are becoming increasingly dependent on technology, both in our professional and personal lives. It is difficult to imagine what life would be like today without email, mobile phones and social networking services. Yet every coin has 2 sides: modern technologies come with many risks, including hacker attacks and malware. Fortunately, we are not completely defenceless in the face of unfair practices, and observing a few simple rules is often enough to ensure basic safety:

  • Install licensed software

Using pirated applications and operating systems provides only illusory savings. Note that unlicensed software often installs viruses and spyware which, besides infecting your computer, can access your confidential passwords and logins.

  • Invest in antivirus software

Antivirus software does not cost a fortune, but it provides effective protection against unexpected dangers.

  • Apply software updates

Even if you have licensed software, you should remember to keep it up-to-date. Fraudsters are usually just one step behind and as soon as a new product appears on the market they start to look for a way around its security features.

  • Never share your data

  • Never click links of unknown origin The same applies to opening email attachments.
