With dark winter evenings and Christmas coming soon this is a good time to consider if you are protecting your property properly. At home as you start to pile up the presents, and their value increases, having a high-quality intruder alarm system could give you peace of mind. Additionally, retailers and their suppliers will have more stock as they supply the Christmas demand so again an effective intruder alarm system is important.

Easy to use HKC app to improve intruder alarm management
If you have an HKC intruder alarm system installed SecureComm, its cloud-based solution enables you, and us as installers, to access your intruder alarm system. This means when you have access to the internet you can connect to the easy-to-use HKC app on your smart phone and we can support you with the installer app. You can access all the features of the app by entering the user code that you normally tap into your intruder alarm control panel.
The key features of the HKC app are:
- Setting and unsetting your alarm system, which includes full setting or just part-setting the alarm, wherever you are
- Receiving notifications of when alarms are activated and receiving a photo with this if the alarm is attached to a camera
- If your alarm system has been integrated with other systems or devices around your home such as heating, lighting or an electric gate you can also turn them on or off or set a time for this
- Site settings which controls when you get notifications, such as for alarm activation or if there is a technical fault with the system
- Receive notifications on your smart phone of the changes to the alarm settings
Intruder alarm monitoring for peace of mind during dark winter evenings
The SecureCom Cloud system also enables our standards-compliant alarm receiving centre (ARC) to receive signals from your intruder alarm system if you opt to receive 24/7 remote monitoring. The ARC can filter out false alarms but you can also receive a police response if it is required.
If your property contains high value goods, or is likely to be a target for burglars especially during these dark winter evenings then remote monitoring by an ARC will provide an extra layer of security and added peace of mind. The ARC will ensure the intruder alarm system is being constantly monitored when the system is armed throughout the day and night.
This might be of particular interest in the winter when there are more hours of darkness or more particularly over the festive period when you may close your premises over an extended period of time or when you stay away from home visiting relatives.
