According to both London’s Metropolitan Police and a Which? survey of ex-burglars, you’re less likely to become a victim of burglary if you have a well-fitted and well-maintained burglar alarm system. That means fitting one is a worthwhile investment. The best alarm for your home depends on your personal preferences, your budget, where you live, what your home is like, and what level of protection and response you’re after.
Firstly, you need to decide what you would like to happen when your alarm goes off: Bells-only alarms make a noise, but don’t contact anyone (such as the police or you). Smart home-security systems contact you or family members when the alarm goes off through a smartphone or tablet app. A monitoring contract means you pay monthly or annually to take action or call the police if the alarm goes off.
Wireless remote fobs allow you to set/unset your intruder alarm in full or part set mode. further programming will allow operation of other devices such as automatic gates and garage doors.
Wire-Free or Hard wired Keypad, located near the main entrance door (or multiple doors) to enable the system to be armed/disarmed by pin code or optional proximity tag.
Wire-Free smoke detectors & Carbon monoxide detectors to provide advanced warning in the event of fire or carbon monoxide escape.
External Hard-Wired or Wire-Free Detectors protecting around your property and giving you early warning through your smart phone of intrusion.
