Domestic Security Alarms
Protecting your home from intruders is of paramount importance. It’s not just the financial loss a break-in causes, but also the emotional impact and disruption it can have. Most of us do not always consider the full implications of a break-in — until it is too late.
Professionally installed and maintained electronic security systems are essential for all home properties as part of an integrated security solution. They act as a strong deterrent to intruders as well as alerting home owners and the police, should the need arise.
The type of system you choose is important. For Intruder Alarms, ‘bells-only’ alarms deter intruders and may alert passers by, but will not get you an automatic police response. Insurers will normally insist that a remotely ‘monitored alarm’ is installed, where activation signals are sent to a monitoring centre, ensuring the police are contacted on your behalf in the event of a confirmed signal.
CCTV allows you to watch over your site and record intruder activity for evidence. However, it is essential to have a suitable system meeting the appropriate standards to ensure its effectiveness to do the job you want. Access Control systems are also a way of keeping out unwanted visitors.
From our experience and guidance we’ll recommended the best security system for your requirements. Get in touch today to see how we can help protect you.
