Intruder Alarm

Why do you need an intruder alarm system?

It goes without saying how important it is to feel safe and secure in your own home, but unfortunately in this day and age burglaries aren’t an uncommon occurrence. It is easy to assume it will never happen to you, but having an intruder alarm fitted into your property will give you the piece of mind to go about your daily life worry free.

Police studies have shown that a well fitted and maintained burglar alarm makes you less likely to become the victim of a break in. If this isn’t enough to convince you that it’s time to have an intruder alarm system fitted, then there’s also the fact that some insurance companies will offer reduced home insurance premiums for those with extra security in place, such as an alarm system.


What type of alarm do you need for home security?

There is no definite answer for which alarm system is best for you, as there are many factors to consider. You need to consider which alarm system will work with the layout of your home, what your budget is for the system and installation of the system, and also the level of security you require. You can opt for either a wired or wireless intruder alarm system, however wireless ones are much more popular today as they fit subtly into your home without ruining your décor.

Bells only –

As the name suggests, a bells-only intruder alarm lets off a loud sound when a break in is detected. There are two common types of bells-only alarm systems: Trap Protection and Perimeter Alarm Protection.


Trap Protection –

This type of bells-only alarm detects movement inside your property while the system is armed, making them a go to low-cost alarm system for homes. They are also ideal for properties such as holiday homes, which are often unoccupied for long periods of time.


Perimeter Alarm Protection –

Unlike trap protection alarms, a perimeter alarm detects a break in from both the inside and outside of your property. It does this using contact sensors on external doors, and shock sensors on windows and other openings such as patio doors, to detect when someone is breaking in before they even enter the property.


These alarms aren’t the most secure out of all your options, however a combination of Trap and Perimeter protection can be ideal for those on a lower budget and with homes that are considered lower-risk (the risk factor can be determined by the amount of contents or valuables it holds). It’s important to consider however that we all hold important things in our home, whether they are valuable in monetary terms or whether they hold sentimental value, which is why you may want to read on to find out about all your options before deciding which is right for you.
