The security of remote access

Caravan homes - The security of remote access

If you’ve ever been locked out of your house or car, you are familiar with that feeling of frustration — always at the most inconvenient of times. It’s even worse when you’re staying in a holiday home and have to hunt for help in unfamiliar territory.

Nick Cowley, managing director of PVCu windows and doors expert Euramax, explains how integrating remote access into holiday homes can save the frustration for both holiday makers and those that manage them.

The staycation era is truly upon us. The BBC reported that the UK is the second biggest buyer of touring caravans after the US, as more holiday makers are choosing to become tourists in their own country in favour of heading overseas.

Why integration and flexibility are key to access control management

Access control is a critical element of building security. It is vital in so many ways, not only from an anti-intruder or theft perspective but also in terms of health and safety. In almost every building - whether that’s an office block, a school, a hospital or a shopping centre - many people enter, exit and move around the premises. It is crucial therefore that access into and around buildings, where people are granted or denied entry to certain zones at different times, is managed effectively.

Sophisticated thieves pose new problem for caravan and motorhome industry

Sophisticated thieves pose new problem for caravan and motorhome industry

The emergence of more sophisticated thieves may be rendering many conventional trackers ineffective, with the caravan and motorhome industry particularly vulnerable, according to telematics expert In-car Cleverness.

The increasing prevalence of advanced equipment, including scanners able to detect traditional tracking units, has meant some criminals can easily remove traditional trackers and clone the vehicle’s identity, making stolen vehicles nearly untraceable.

As a result, caravan and motorhome retail and rental businesses – which often use conventional trackers to safeguard their vehicles from theft – may emerge as the latest targets for sophisticated vehicle thieves.

How ANPR can help make your caravan park secure

Security

Every caravan park owner needs a secure site. Not only do you need to look after your onsite caravans, but your guests too. Ensuring that the park is secure will make your visitors feel like they’re in the comfort and safety of their own home, making them more likely to return.  An insecure park may increase the chances of theft which in turn may negatively influence the quantity and quality of your guests. To ensure this doesn’t happen to your park, read on!

 

Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR), is a technology which detects registration plates, allowing the control of vehicles in and out of an area. This system allows managers to control who is entering their site and makes it easier as their site grows. 

 

Educating caravanners about gas safety

Educating caravanners about gas safety

London, UK - Two in five caravanners and campers have admitted taking enormous risks with their lives by bringing outdoor gas appliances inside as a result of the unpredictable British weather, according to a new survey by CORGI Homeplan.  

 

Millions are bringing lit barbecues inside their caravans, revealing a shocking lack of understanding of the risks involved when using gas cookers and barbecues. Even when their flames are extinguished, these appliances can all emit deadly carbon monoxide. A further two thirds of caravanners did not know that carbon monoxide can still be produced after a flame is extinguished.
