Front door locks make it inconvenient for robbers to break into your home, but they won’t stop a determined thief. Even deadbolts have their limitations.

You can activate the lock manually at home by stepping on Haven. You can also control it with a phone app, key fob or web portal.

These days, home security requires more than locks, motion sensors and cameras. You also need to protect your home network from hackers.

Flter also blocks malicious ads and uses the Tor network to increase your online anonymity.

Locking your glove box might slow down thieves, but it won’t stop them from accessing valuable items that you keep there. Adding a Bulldog car vault to your car gives you an extra level of security. When the vault is locked, it becomes secured to its mounting bracket, making it practically impossible for someone to steal valuable items from your car.

  1. Biometric Engine Starter

A biometric engine starter uses a fingerprint scanner to prevent unauthorized people from driving your vehicle. Even if someone manages to break into your car, they won’t be able to take it.
