Funlux launches new wireless security system ahead of Christmas period

01 Dec 15

The Christmas season is notorious for an increase in burglaries as criminals target Christmas gifts and gadgets.

In response, network and surveillance product company Funlux has launched a new fully wireless security system, offering HD video recording, remote viewing and push messaging functionality when motion is detected via its free app.

According Funlux, the increase in burglaries over Christmas is so significant, Halifax Home Insurance recorded an average of 50 burglary claims made each day during the holiday period.

“Expensive gadgets, jewellery and other Christmas presents lying under the tree are also easier to steal when houses are often left unattended for Christmas parties, family days out or shopping trips,” the company says.

“Now homeowners can deter criminals with a tight security system offering weatherproof cameras for indoor or outdoor use and night vision,” Funlux says in a statement. “Owners can benefit from remote viewing anywhere, anytime, to make sure if anything suspicious is going on at home they can take action.”

"Unfortunately, the Christmas season which should be the happiest time of year for families, can quickly turn sour if you fall victim to a burglary,” the company says. “Opportunistic criminals can quickly ruin the holidays, and burglaries are known to spike at this time of year. Protect your presents, belongings and property with an intelligent security system designed to alert homeowners instantly of a break in."

The entire can be completely installed within two minutes. The 720P HD video can be viewed on a TV or PC monitor, or on a smartphone for remote viewing when linked to the app.

“The completely wireless solution offers the ultimate security for your property and helps ease worry throughout the party season,” Funlux says.
