The best burglar alarm for your home or business can depend on a number of factors. Your choice can be governed by your budget, the size of your property, the area you live, or the level of protection that you are looking for.
There are many different types of burglar alarm on the market, and our range offers you everything you need for peace of mind.
Types of burglar alarm systems
- Bells-only – one that sounds when triggered but does not directly contact anyone (yourself, a monitoring company or the police.)
- Monitored alarms – paying a company to monitor the alarm, ready to take action when triggered, or inform the police. A monthly or annual payment is set-up for the monitoring period.
- Smart home security monitoring systems – connected to you and your family members via a smartphone or tablet app. When the burglar alarm system is triggered you are alerted immediately.
- Dialler burglar alarms – automatically calls your phone number (or other designated family members or friends) when the alarm is triggered.
The different intruder protection systems provide a range of functionality and come at a range of different prices. As mentioned, monitored intruder systems normally require a contract in addition to the cost of the alarm.
