Intruder Alarms

Choosing the right intruder alarms for your home

The intruder alarm is the cornerstone of any home security system. And today’s alarms are better than ever; easy-to-operate, low-maintenance, wireless systems that give you absolute peace of mind.
Perhaps the best thing about intruder alarms is that they offer three levels of protection:

  1. A visual deterrent – intruder alarms are visible from outside the property, helping warn potential intruders off. Burglars always look for the easy target.
  2. An audible deterrent – as soon as the alarm is tripped, the noise is usually enough to scare intruders away. Burglars don’t want to attract attention.
  3. A call for help – when the alarm sounds, people react. You or a nominated person can be informed by mobile of the alarm alert. Even if it means a neighbour puts a call through to the police, that’s enough.

What intruder alarms do we recommend?

Steve, our senior engineer, has been fitting domestic intruder alarms for the best part of 20 years. And these are the systems he recommends:

  • Risco Agility
  • Risco LightSYS
  • Risco Gardtec
  • Scantronic
  • Texecom
  • Pyronix
  • Honeywell

So why these alarms? At the time of writing, we believe these alarms offer the best reassurance, the best ongoing service and the best protection against burglary – whilst all providing exceptional value for money.
In our experience, these intruder alarms are suitable in 99 cases out of 100. But don’t worry. If you do need a different system, we’ll find the alarm that fits.

Intruder alarms for reassurance

Your alarm should give you absolute peace of mind. So here are a few extra reassurances for you:

What are they like to use?

Very easy. Whether we’re fitting wired or wireless alarm systems, we always ensure that the alarm is easy for you to use. If it isn’t you won’t use it – and that defeats the object of having an alarm in the first place.
Of course, if you’re looking for a more technical alarm system with full internet connectivity – we can fit that too.

What about false alarms?

20 or 30 years ago, false alarms were a real problem. The old systems would detect light or the movement of a spider and trigger the alarm. Result: lots of false alarms and neighbourhood disturbances! But things have changed. Thanks to huge advances in technology and design, the new intruder alarms are smarter.
Think about it. If you hear an intruder alarm go off now, you’re much more likely to believe there’s a genuine problem.

What about your pets?

Worried that your cat or dog will trip the alarm every time they move about the house? Don’t be. Pet-friendly sensors ensure that the family animals can continue to come and go as they please at any time of the day or night.
