Choosing the right home alarm system

A home burglar alarm system is often the second line of defence for securing your home. Of course, the first line in defence is your walls and physical security, so ensuring you have the strongest possible locks on your doors and ensuring all windows are closed whenever you leave the house is the first thing you should ensure at all times to prevent intruders from accessing your home when you are not there.

Having a burglar alarm system installed in your house is a very effective measure to deter criminals. The bell box on the outside of your property is often enough to actually put the burglar off in the first place, as most will decide to attempt a break in on an easier target with no obvious security protecting their property.

No Wires Installation

Gone are the days that a workman would spend the best part of a whole day working in your house in order to set up your alarm system! They no longer need to drill any holes either, so there is no reason to expect your house to be left in a bit of a mess after they complete their work on your property.

These days, most burglar alarm systems are completely wireless when used in a house. They have a large enough range to cover the entire property, and are often the easiest ones to install in your home. Given there are no wires to worry about, installation is a very quick process that is usually done within a couple of hours – including setup of the actual control panel and instructions for use.

Alarm monitoring

Whilst the alarm itself is a fantastic deterrent, if the alarm goes off you really want to be certain that somebody will respond to it! Think how many times you have heard a car alarm go off down the street, or even heard a burglar alarm sounding outside somebodies house, and have actually done nothing. We are so used to these noises going off all around us that nowadays people very rarely take action!alarm-monitoring

Therefore, it is important that you have a monitoring system setup so as to ensure somebody will actually react to the sound of your alarm when it’s going off. Most alarm monitoring companies charge a flat monthly fee, and your system is connected to their monitoring station using wireless internet or GPRS. Should the alarm go off in your house, these companies will alert the police and ensure that the relevant action is taken to respond to your alarm.
