Burglar Alarms Bridport Dorset (DT6): If you're considering the installation of a burglar alarm it might be handy to be aware that the level of crime in Britain has been climbing annually. There were more than 1 million burglaries and attempted break-ins in Britain during the year 2018-19, and from this number in England and Wales alone there were approximately four hundred and twenty two thousand actual burglaries from property. (Source: Statista, Crime and Law Enforcement statistics).
It's a terrible truth that many homeowners only look into the possibility of installing a burglar alarm or other security system after a burglary on their property. Fitting a burglar alarm is an investment worth considering, particularly when the police in general say that there is less probability of being the target of the forty seven percent of burglars who break in on the spur of the moment. You will find there are a number of different intruder and burglar alarm systems on the market to suit your budget and lessen fears about the possibility of a burglary. Choosing a burglar alarm that matches your needs can be something of a challenge; how do you work out which sort to put in?
All budgets are catered for across the burglar alarm range. The range of features of the various intruder alarms can set you back as much as you are prepared to pay, with alarms that work straight from the box (simply insert the batteries), to alarms that require professional installation and can send alerts by SMS or voice messages to 24 hour security providers. All of these alarm systems can be bought in wireless or wired versions and may even link up to a CCTV device or security system to film suspect events for photographic and video evidence. Think about your own surroundings and location before acquiring an intruder alarm and weigh-up what kind of alarm is required for your situation.
TYPES OF BURGLAR ALARM
Visual Only/Audible Alarms - Ordinarily an exterior bell box with an obvious flashing light which sounds when the alarm's been set off. This alarm will warn neighbours and occupants but does not report the alarm via text or voice message to a smart phone.
- Easy installation can be achieved by householders with reasonable do-it-yourself skills.
- The alarm box is a visible deterrent that can help to discourage potential intruders.
- Quite a few folks have grown to be "alarm immune" and will simply disregard the alarm.
- Only occupants and those in the immediate locality are warned if the intruder alarm is triggered.
Auto-Dial Security Systems - These have all of the functions of an audio visual alarm, but can also send a SMS text via a prepaid SIM card or send a voice message to a landline. Usually up to 10 individuals can be alerted by SMS or voice message, of any alarm sounding, with the sequence set by the owner of the alarm. If several contacts are allowed then if the first person doesn't respond to the message then the second on the list is informed, and so forth until acknowledgment.
- Additional detectors can be added to warn you of flooding, fire or carbon monoxide.
- Notifications are sent immediately an alarm has been detected by the device.
- If your mobile is turned off or has a poor signal, you won't receive a notification from your alarm.
- SIM only devices need the card to have the credit topped up before use and may not work that well in a weak signal area.
Monitored Home Security Systems - A complete monitoring and security package can be supplied by a professional alarm monitoring and response company in return for an annual or monthly fee. These security alarm companies offer an end-to-end solution by installing, monitoring, maintaining your intruder alarm and offering assistance in times of an alarm trigger. For further security such devices may also have the possibility of informing the local police force when an alarm goes off in your home or business premises in Bridport.
- Prospective criminals are more likely to be put off by a monitored security alarm.
- 24 hour monitoring of your business or home by an established security company.
- System maintenance and repair is generally covered in the agreement.
- Equipment installation and servicing can only be undertaken by a company representative.
- Long contract periods and costly cancellation charges.
- Annual or monthly fees can prove quite expensive.
Smart Home Security - Using the internet to provide communications and a mixture of sensors, detectors and cameras, you can remotely control and monitor your burglar alarm wherever you happen to be. With a secure application and personal account you have the capability to control and monitor all aspects of your alarm from any compatible Windows, Android or iOS device.
- A good way to keep tabs on your business or home if you spend a lot of time away.
- The app and software can be used with several digital gadgets, such as tablets, laptops and smartphones.
- The system is dependent on good internet speeds and phone data signal for the app to work reliably.
- Compatible extra equipment and sensors can be costly.
Portable Alarm Systems - These are small gadgets designed for simplicity of use and to add security when travelling, or for additional protection for outbuildings where mains power is not available. A number of of these portable alarms are now available with a solar powered alternative.
- Just the thing for travelers on the move who wish to add an additional layer of security to their accommodation.
- The cheapest and easiest to set up of all the alarm systems.
- Fairly basic security features which only provide a local alarm in case of a break-in.
- Regular replacing or recharging of the batteries is required.
WIRELESS OR WIRED?
Now that you know what you will need from your alarm system in terms of coverage and features, which will be the best for your home or business; wireless or wired?
Wired - Initial costs could be cheaper than a wireless system, however installation can be challenging and cost more, due to the extra time required for laying the cables. Once fitted the operating costs are minimal for a wired alarm system as there aren't any batteries to replace in the alarm siren box, the detectors or the sensors. Servicing is limited to dusting sensors and monitoring any battery back-up in the control unit and external siren box on a routine schedule as set by the alarm manufacturer. If the wires are not hidden the cables can look rather unsightly.
Wireless - Wireless alarms, though a little more expensive than a hard-wired version with the same features, have reduced in price making them affordable for everyone in Bridport. The basic alarms are also very easy to install by anybody with an average level of DIY knowledge, but for the more complex security systems it is preferable to use an experienced alarm installation company in Bridport. Batteries are needed for all sensors and the alarm bell, and they need to be tested regularly.
BURGLAR ALARM INSTALLATION

Perimeter Security Bridport
Perimeter security can be autonomous of an existing alarm on a home or business premises in Bridport, or it can be built-into an existing control unit for added convenience. Where a typical intruder alarm notifies you when an individual forces their way into your property, perimeter security systems are activated when someone enters your property's boundary.
Basic perimeter alarms will make a noise like a bell, very much like the ones that you find on the door of a shop when someone enters the store. There are even more advanced perimeter security systems that can utilise seismic detectors, infrared sensors, laser beams, ground surveillance radar and motion cameras.
A very passive, simple and effective, form of perimeter security is the basic sharp spikey wall or fence topper. They don't give you any warning, but even these small spikes can stop unwelcome ingress to your boundaries by creating a painful, physical barrier for anyone looking to scale a wall.
