Siemens Gigaset HC450 – Number One Security Product on The Gadget Show

Siemens Gigaset HC450 Door Entry System

Last month we told you about Paul’s involvement in the filming of a security feature for the Channel Five programme The Gadget Show, reviewing the Siemens Gigaset HC450 Door Entry System.

The Gadget Show HC450 review was aired on Monday 21st September on Channel Five, revealing their favourite five home security gadgets, putting the HC450 on the top of the podium in the number one spot!

The review demonstrated all the great features of the Siemens Gigaset door entry system. They were particularly impressed with the HC450’s ability to allow users to check who is at the door while they are away from home. Even calling it “genius”.

For those of you who missed it – Check it out on Five’s catch up website.

We also thought you might be interested in a little anecdote:

A courier company called at our chairman’s house, where an HC450 is installed. When he answered the intercom from his mobile 200 miles away, he was able to arrange a new date for the parcel to be redelivered.

The driver was amazed: “Never seen anything like that before mate. Bloody brilliant device, makes our job much easier!”
