RISCO Group has obtained Secured by Design (SBD) accreditation for RISCO Cloud, its software-based service solution for managing and controlling intruder detection. This follows SBD accreditation for the LightSYS 2 intruder alarm panel system.
Secured by Design, the national police initiative, combines the principles of ‘designing out crime’ with physical security and accredits relevant quality products that meet its stringent standards to deter and reduce crime.
Ian Stones, Head of Sales for RISCO UK commented: “Our full incorporation of Secured by Design principles will provide additional reassurance to installers and end-users alike that a RISCO system is the ultimate enemy of any potential burglar!”
Hazel Goss, Development Officer, Secured by Design, added: “We are delighted to be working with the long-established RISCO Group on their latest range of ever smarter technology products for the residential and commercial marketplaces. Advancements in security technology, such as RISCO’s LightSYS 2, enables householders to use a smartphone app to see live video of their home on demand whilst they are out and about as well as to receive security alerts. Police Forces everywhere want residents to take whatever steps they can to protect their homes to reduce crime and keep communities safe – and new smart technology is playing a key role in driving the growing demand for security products.”
