Hi, I’m PC Chris Hayden and welcome to our series of videos all around simple security tips. And we’re going to do this in 60 seconds! This video is about window shock alarms, why use one, the fitting and how they work. As well as the obvious open windows, burglars spot other windows of opportunity, looking for windows on the ground floor and the first floor that they can force and climb through. Make it difficult! Burglars don’t want to be seen or heard. This is a window shock alarm. They only take a minute to fit one and they cost around 3 to 5 pounds. Let me show you just how easy this is to fit. This is the alarm, it comes with an adhesive sticker to fit to the window which also acts as a deterrent from the outside. The device has an on off and a hi low switch. You can fit it to a suitable opening window, like this. This window now has the alarm installed. Should anyone force the window, (Screeeech!) the alarm will sound. This is simple security, but effective!
