Wired and Wireless Intruder
The idea of an intruder alarm is to simply try and deter a potential burglary
occurring at your premises, and to an extent it works a treat. After all if your
house is alarmed and another house just up the road isn't then yours is a lot
less likely to get targeted.
A burglar does not want any attention, he just wants to get in with as little
fuss as possible take what ever he wants and leave to go on to the next target,
if he triggers an alarm system it could obviously ruin his entire day, noise is
his worst enemy because it attracts attention.
Our burglar alarms are professionally designed and installed to suit your
lifestyle. Multiple codes for family and friends let you control who can enter
your home and control your home security system. If you have pets and want to
give them freedom to certain areas, this can be built into the design of the
intruder alarm system.
Installing quality security measures is an investment in the safety and
security of your home. It is a long term investment that will reduce the risk of
being the victim of crime and will bring considerable peace of mind.

Details of Intruder alarms
An intruder alarm consists of a combination of detection, control and
signaling devices. Every part of this equipment has been developed to fulfil a
specific task within the system. The components are strategically placed in the
building to be protected, in such a way that you can count on their constant,
reliable and disturbance-free functioning.
There are basically 2 choices to when choosing an alarm system
Choice 1. Audible only:
The alarm sounds at the premises only. Response is reliant on somebody
contacting the police to report it. Many forces have a policy whereby they will
not attend audible only alarms unless there is additional evidence to suggest a
crime is being committed, in other words they are not likely to attend unless
someone reports a visual sighting or noises such as glass breaking.
Choice 2. Monitored:
The alarm sounds at the premises and a signal is sent to an alarm receiving
centre via your phone line, mobile network. The ARC will contact your nominated
key holders or the police* (see
standards page for more info)
There is also the options of Hard wired or wirefree systems
Option 1. Hard wired:
Can be more reliable and cheaper than wire free, but takes longer to install.
Most commercial alarms are wired
Option 2. Wirefree:
Easy to install but more expensive than a wired system. Used mostly in homes
or small business premises.
Police will respond to a monitored alarm when an alarm-receiving centre
notifies them. However, from October 2001 newly installed monitored alarms must
also use "confirmation" technology to receive a police response. Here,
people at the alarm-receiving centre check using either CCTV (to see an
intruder), an audio connection (to hear an intruder) or something called
"sequential confirmation". Sequential confirmation sounds a bit
complicated, but basically this means detecting an intruder using sensors in a
number of different places in or around you home - to spot if someone is moving
