WHY INSTALL AN INTRUDER ALARM?
Being a homeowner is one of the greatest assets anyone can have in their lifetime. Not only does your home protect your family but it also protects the valuable assets inside, some often irreplaceable. An alarm system is designed to warn you of an attempted break-in and to deter burglars and intruders from entering a property.
A break-in can cause a business immense disruption – from the theft of equipment to productivity downtime and insurance claim processes.
Having an Intruder System installed can deter opportunists and give peace of mind that assets are protected.
Properties which do not employ any form of security are 10 times more likely to be victims of crime. A professionally installed Intruder Alarm plays a significant role in keeping burglars out and your property fully protected whether you’re away for a few hours or a few days. It is much more likely that an intruder would select a property that is not alarmed rather than one that is.
It will provide complete peace of mind, safeguarding your family, belongings, and premises.
TYPES OF INTRUDER ALARMS?
Having a wired home security system was traditional until the introduction of wireless alarm systems. The components of a wired alarm system are connected together using alarm cables. These link each individual components to a control panel which controls how the system works. Wired burglar alarm systems are powered directly by your mains electricity and can be connected to your phone line if you would like it monitored.
Wireless alarm systems:
These provide effective and reliable security protection for your home. Unlike more traditional wired systems, wireless burglar alarms require minimal cabling. This means a wireless house alarm can be installed without the need to run visible wires throughout the property. Instead, the system components are battery-powered and use strong and reliable two-way radio frequencies to communicate with each other.
Smart Security Systems:
Home security products, including alarms and CCTV, can now use the internet to monitor activity and live stream security images – this is known as smart home security. Smart home security offers you the ability to control your security systems on the move through a secure connection to your home broadband*. Using an App on your smartphone or tablet, you can connect to your smart home security system to manage your alarm settings and view CCTV images, a little like controlling automated lighting.
Audible Bells Only Alarms:
This type of alarm system is capable of activating internal and external sounders in an attempt to draw attention to your premises, generally reliant upon your surrounding neighborhood to respond. The external sounder will only sound for 10mins in conjunction with the noise abatement policy. You can add a Speech Dialler to a bells-only alarm which enables your alarm to call a selection of telephone numbers should the alarm be activated.
24 hr Monitored Alarms:
Monitored alarms provide you with peace of mind any time you are away from home or your place of business. This type of alarm system is connected via your phone line to our Alarm Receiving Centre. Once activation is received from your alarm system the ARC will determine the type of signal and will then will immediately notify the local police station, us and/or nominated key holder. With this type of solution comes a small alarm system annual fee, but included in that fee is that we will maintain your system every 6 months. All of our monitored systems are supported by a 24hr call out service, police response, on-call engineers and Technical support engineers.
