Intruder alarms

Intruder or burglar alarms bring plenty of benefits to homes, and just seeing an alarm can deter many criminals. As well as providing you with piece of mind it’ll help prevent a break-in, whilst also aiding many home insurance claims.

The recent recession has reversed the recent trend of home burglaries declining and now it would seem a priority to protect your home further with intruder alarm systems. Remember, burglars will be more likely to target a home without an alarm, rather than a property with one.

Types of burglar alarms

  • Speech dialler alarms

These types of alarms either call you or a nominated person when triggered. This is a pre-recorded message to alert you or neighbours so the police can be called.

  • Monitored alarm systems

The monitored alarms are connected by telephone to a receiving centre. Your alarm system will have 24 hour monitoring and if tripped, your property will be called for identification verification. If this fails, the police or a nominated key holder will be called.

  • Bell only alarms

Bell system alarms are the most popular in the UK and simply make a loud noise when triggered, which will either scare burglars away, or alert you and neighbours. It isn’t linked to a centre or the police though.

  • Infrared burglar alarms

Infrared systems are triggered when detectors are tripped. The detectors are carefully positioned by likely entry points such as doors and windows. Whilst they can be set off accidently, advances in the technology now make them much more reliable.

Intruder alarm benefits

The benefits for having an intruder alarm fitted include:

  • Being able to leave your home for long periods of time, including holidays, without the worry of someone breaking into your property.

  • Discounted home insurance. The extra protection intruder alarms offer are a winner with insurance companies and costs could be reduced, even with simple systems.

  • The ability to secure both the inside and outside of your home. Even sheds and garages harbouring expensive tools can be protected.

  • Possibilities of adding further security with smoke detectors and surveillance systems, which are crucial for larger homes and businesses.

The price we thought was very good. The 2 guys were very professional, polite and just got on with the job. As we are old they put the app on our phones and tablets for us and made sure we knew how everything worked. They reiterate if we came across any problems to just ring, if it could not be sorted our over the phone they WOULD visit again

I went with an alternative local company. This has no reflection on Home Security, the other company I chose was able to respond quickly to my requirements, which fit in with my schedule.
