When we move to sunnier climates, we love the fresh new and safe lifestyle we hope it offers. It does in deed, but it also pays to feel secure too. Villa Watch offer Alarms and CCTV systems from basic systems to those that are internet linked where you can view your home from afar! I can see why Villa Watch are the personally recommended security company in The Algarve.

There are no ʻifsʼ or butsʼ when talking with Carl Nixon the CEO of Villa Watch, he is by far the most technically astute person I have met. His security knowledge is astounding, and to whatever your budget, they have a system to suit. Site surveys are free of charge. If you are thinking of renting your property, they offer ʻVilla Monitorʼ a coded door entry system which takes away the headache of lost keys, or employing someone for a key hand over.

Codes are changed for each new client, and you can also specify the hours for the maid or service staff. You are in control of who has access your home and when. Their newest product is one I am really championing, its called ʻSAFETY ANGELʼ and is a proximity and anti-drowning alarm.

The kit comes with 2 bracelets (for 2 children) and a portable base, the parent sets the distance from 5-50m, if the child goes out of the boundary the alarm sounds on the base, also if the child falls into the pool the alarm will also sound. Its an amazing little piece of kit, that will not only save lives, it gives us, the busy parent, peace of mind.
