Chain Reaction Forensic Alarms
Chain Reaction DNA is a new perimeter defense mechanism designed to ease the fear associated with doorstep crime and to deter a burglary, forced entry or home invasion robbery from being committed.

What we think
We at Redlocks Locksmiths strongly believe that the installation of this door limiter along with the implementation of warning stickers situated on or around the front door will deter these type of offences but more importantly ease the fear associated with the crimes it has been designed to combat. This will enable a homeowner to answer a call at their front door confident in the fact that any attempt by a caller to gain unlawful entry into their home will be met with a direct proactive response.

Advanced Intruder Deterrent
Harnessing forensic trace technology StranDNA have developed and have received Police approval regarding this totally new and innovative door security product. If activated assists the Police in the subsequent forensic identification of the individuals who perpetrate these criminal offences more effectively resulting in a 100% conviction rate.

Chain Reaction DNA is installed at entry points around a home and can be attributed to unoccupied properties, commercial premises or rear delivery doors as an opt-out door security device. If an attempt to gain unlawful entry is made Chain Reaction DNA automatically sounds an alarm to […]

Redlocks Locksmiths of Cambridge Social Networking Security Tip

Social networking is fun, it’s nice to go on Facebook or Twitter and let all your friends know you are ‘in Mexico’ or ‘Up the Eiffel Tower’, but you are also letting everyone know your house may be empty and may be for a while, something we at Redlocks Locksmiths Cambridge advise against.

Do you really trust everyone in your friends list? Do you actually know all the people in your friends list or those following you on Twitter? Think about it! It may be wiser to play safe and if you feel the urge to announce it, do it once home.

Security Checklist for University Students

Whether they are going to university for the first time, or returning to study for another year, students will often find themselves in new accommodation – from halls of residence to private rented flats or houses.

Students are one of the highest at-risk groups of crime in the country, often targeted for high value laptops, TVs, and entertainment equipment which are frequently left in plain view and unsecured against intruders. It’s important, therefore, that students are aware of how to keep themselves and their possessions safe.

Safety and security should be top of the agenda for students when they move into a new property, or return to their old digs, as dealing with the effects of crime is a very unsettling and distressing experience. By carrying out these simple measures to maintain a safe and secure property, we can put students’ (and parents’) minds at ease.

It is all too easy to assume that previous residents have handed in their keys and while this may well be the case, it does not mean that extra copies have not been made by either former residents, employees, contractors or even rogue tradesmen. It is important for students and parents to question what locking systems are in place, when they were last replaced and how the copying of keys is controlled.

It is landlord’s’ duty to act in a responsible manner and they should install quality locks with patented keys which cannot be copied without proof of ownership or restricted keys which cannot be easily copied due to their unique design.
Advice for students in halls of residence:
Request information on the locking systems and how key duplication is regulated, recorded and controlled.
