We take your security very seriously, and that stretches further than just having the right locks. Locksmith Service 247 recommends a burglar alarm to all homes looking to increase their security. So why do most people never use their burglar alarms? We don’t have the answer to that, but we do know that according to a recent study done by Which?, 7% of all burglar alarm owners had experienced a break-in or an attempted break-in. This piece of information would suggest that burglars aren’t going to be just scared off by seeing a burglar alarm.
The right burglar alarm installation
Which type of burglar alarm is best suited for your property? Firstly, there are two main types of alarm to pick from. There are stand-alone alarms and then there’s monitored alarm systems.
What is the difference and which type would be best suited to my property?
The difference between the two alarms is that a stand-alone alarm, when set off, will only ring and create a loud noise, which means for it to be effective you really need to have neighbours close by who will actively call the police. Whereas monitored alarms are a little different and not only just make a loud noise, but you will most likely also pay a monthly fee to a company who monitor your alarm and depending on the type of contract you have will either phone the police or a nominated key holder.
Having either could greatly improve your home security and while they may seem expensive they could save you a lot of hassle in the future. Contact us today and let us expertly guide you through all of your alarm installation questions.
