Types of burglar alarm systems
Firstly, you need to decide what type of burglar alarm you want, and crucially what you would like to happen when your alarm goes off:
- these alarms usually consisting of a box with an alarm sounder, and then sensors/detectors placed in key locations around the home, such as near doors or windows. The alarm is controlled via a fixed panel and/or key fobs supplied with the product. The alarm only sounds when the system is triggered and doesn’t directly alert you or anyone else.
Dialler burglar alarms:
- these alarms automatically dial your phone number, or that of nominated friends and family, when the alarm is triggered. Dialler alarms aren’t common these days; instead most alarm brands offer a a contact alert monitoring service.
Smart security systems:
- control your home security via an app on your phone with a smart alarm. You can sometimes link your alarm system to other home security devices, such as cameras, and they often work with voice assistants.
A monitoring contract:
- you can pay a monthly or annual fee and a company monitors your alarm for you. They could call/text you or key contacts if the alarm goes off, or send out the police or even a private security team to investigate what has happened, depending on how much you are willing to pay.
