An Intruder Alarm is the best single investment for the protection of your home and family. You are far less likely to become the victim of a burglary if you have a professionally designed and maintained burglar alarm.
There are different types of Intruder alarm available for the protection of your home. They can be categorised into two types, Audible Only and Monitored. There are also two types of installation, hard-wired and wireless.
When activated the alarm sounds at the premises only. Response is reliant on a neighbour notifying the authorities. Many Police forces have a policy to not attend Audible Only alarms unless there is additional evidence to suggest a crime is being committed, i.e. the person reporting the activation confirming a sighting or a broken window.
When activated the alarm sounds at the premises and a signal is sent to an alarm-receiving centre via your phone line and/or mobile network. The receiving centre will contact the nominated key holders and police (subject to confirmation routines).
The visual presence of the Intruder Alarm will deter most potential burglars. The cruel fact is they will seek an easier target.
