LiveTalk - proven to scare burglars away

The idea of LiveTalk is that we immediately scare away burglars by talking to them via a speaker microphone unit and call in the emergency services if necessary.

The following video shows LiveTalk in action - demonstrated by one of our team.  You can also read more about LiveTalk monitoring here >>
