Fido is a unique new product which has been designed with the intentions of making your possessions safer rather than being the be all and end all in the fight against crime.
The idea is simple. Rather than just buying a lock you use Fido instead. Fido offers you assistance and therefore peace of mind when it comes to protecting your possessions. The problem with most anti theft devices is that they lull you into a false sense of security, just ask many a cyclist in London. Even Boris Johnson has had his bicycle stolen. He locked it up, assumed it was safe and came back to find it had vanished.
Fido doesn’t work like that. Fido isn’t a lock. So unfortunately cannot protect and possession in your absence for any amount of time but What Fido does allow you to do is turn your back on a possession in the short term and know that nobody can take it without you knowing as it happens..
It has been suggested there are 6 key ways to prevent Crimes.
- Increase the risk of the thief getting caught
- Increase the effort a thief must make in order to make the theft
- Reduce any provocation
- Remove any excuses
- Reduce the rewards
- Remove the opportunity
Fido Increases the perceived risk to the thief of getting caught and the effort they must put in to make the theft.
In essence Fido is a wire loop alarm which when triggered transmits wirelessly to a receiver which the user is wearing. When the receiver is triggered it vibrates to let the user know their possession may be compromised.
Fio is Triggered if the strap is cut/broken or the device is opened. If triggered Fido also continues to transmit for 10 seconds thus making sure you know and preventing any would be thief turning the device off.
Fido is immensely versatile. You can use it on any possession or wear the receiver on practically any part of your body. It is also built on recoil so the strap automatically winds itself in when not in use, or automatically tightens around your possessions
