Keeping your valuables safe at home is important, whether it’s sensitive financial data, passports or property deeds. Valuables like cash or jewellery, are also an easy target for thieves. Thornhill Security offer a range of products which keep your possessions safe against theft and your home more resilient to unauthorised intrusion.
Keyless digital locks provide quick easy entry to your house, without the hassle of keys. Access to these locking systems is via a touch screen entering a 4 to 12 digit pin code and assures peace of mind if you are prone to misplacing your keys. Digital locks are quick and easy to fit, being operated wirelessly using batteries means there are no unsightly wires – the code can be changed on a temporary basis, to allow access to other people when needed for example if you were on holiday and you needed to give your neighbour access for any reason.
