Christmas Campaign Burglary Prevention Denmark - “Christmas lights and neighbourhood watch - with a twist"
Dear everyone in EUNWA,
we have just launched our Christmas campaign – this year also in English, so I will like to share it with you :o).
The purpose of making an English version is that we are trying to catch the international media, so that they may affect the Danish media - we'll see if it works
Christmas lights and neigbourhood watch – with a twist :o)=
About the campaign:
Christmas, the time of giving, is also a time of taking. Because while families come together, houses are left home alone, opening the door for burglars who do their shady work in the dark. And so, every December in Denmark, the number of break-ins increase by a stunning 50%.
But this year, The Danish Neighbourhood Watch has come up with a bright innovation that protects your home during the holidays. Introducing: Christmas Spotlights.
Powerful Christmas lights with a built-in motion sensor that detects intruders and puts them in the spotlight.
In ‘Decoration Mode’, the lights are dim and spreads Christmas cheer throughout the neighbourhood. But don’t be fooled. Should the built-in motion sensor detect any unwanted invaders, it will trigger a mechanism, activating ‘Protection Mode’. The burglar, engulfed in light, and terrified of being seen, will leave the premises before you can say “Merry Christmas”. The neighbours are more than likely to take notice, call the police and notify the owner.
So far, the Christmas Spotlights are still in prototype, and will be tested this Christmas by a select few Danes.
