Can Security Products Be Cool?

They’re a necessity, and they aren’t always considered as the coolest gadgets to have around. But can security products, in fact, be cool?

Security magazineJust browsing the US online magazine, Electronic House, indicates that there is growing interest in innovative & handy security products, pushing them into the realm of ‘cool’ and out of their designated ‘boring home essentials’ category.

From elegantly designed surveillance cameras in copper frame to home automation systems, security products are fast becoming not only more convenient, but better looking, more exciting, and more versatile.

On the hunt for cool stuff in SA

Here in South Africa, the product ranges are more limited and budgets tighter than large markets like in the US. However, the unfor

tunately high crime rate has created an acceptance of expensive security products as part of our standard home improvements, and so we’ve begun to demand items that are not only necessary, but also pleasing to the eye & fun to use.

And we’re always listening to our customers’ demands for new products & ensuring that we can source the best there is at the best price possible.

Fire or smoke detectors that blend into your home decor? By letting your security product providers know what it is you most desire, they will better understand the demand out there and source or construct the products to suit your specifications.
