TYPES OF BURGLAR ALARM
Audible/Visual Only Alarms - Typically an external bell box displaying a blinking light that will sound whenever the alarm has been triggered. This alarm warns neighbours and occupants but does not report the occurrence via SMS or voice message to a smart phone.
- Simple to install.
- Having any form of intruder alarm fitted can help to deter burglary as reported by the police.
- Only occupants and neighbours in the immediate locality are notified if the alarm is triggered.
- Many people have become "alarm immune" and will simply ignore it when it goes off.
Auto-Dialler Alarm Systems - These burglar alarms can be linked with your landline or have a mobile SIM card fitted. Multiple contacts can be introduced via the alarm control unit to be called in a set order. This means if the first doesn't answer, the next individual in line is called and told about the problem.
- Further alarms can be added to warn you of flood, fire or carbon monoxide.
- Communications are sent as soon as the alarm has been triggered by the system.
- SIM only devices need the card to be topped up for use and might not work effectively in a location with a weak signal.
- If your mobile phone has a poor signal or has a flat battery, you won't receive the alert from your burglar alarm.
Contract Security Monitor Alarms - By paying an annual or a monthly fee you are able to have your burglar alarm system closely monitored by a professional security company. The security company will respond to any alarm to give assistance, and will frequently install and maintain the equipment as an integral part of the overall package. These can also be connected to a police response unit for even better security.

WIRED OR WIRELESS ALARMS?
How do you determine whether to choose a wireless or wired burglar alarm, once you've figured out what your precise security requirements are?
Wired - Initial costs could be less costly than a wireless alarm system, but installation can be complicated and cost more, due to the extra time required for laying the cables. Running costs are virtually zero for a hard-wired alarm since there are no batteries required for the alarm bell box or the sensors. Be aware that even in a wired alarm system there may be a backup rechargeable battery, in case of power failure, located in the control unit and external siren box. If not fitted with care the wires can look unsightly running around the walls of your house.
Wireless - Prices for wireless burglar alarms have fallen sharply since they first came on the market making them more cost effective than ever before. They're also much easier to install, and even somebody with quite basic do-it-yourself skills should be able to get a wireless burglar alarm up and running without much difficulty. A wireless security alarm requires the bell box, sensors and other detectors to have fully charged up batteries at all times, to keep the device functioning correctly.
Even while it is quite possible to install a burglar alarm yourself, it is generally recommended to employ the services of a reliable alarm installer. In Burslem you've a variety of companies available, and it is advisable to get more than one quotation.
An experienced Burslem burglar alarm installer will consider your requirements and provide options that match your exact needs. Even if you've explained your precise requirements, most alarm installers will want to do a site survey to make certain there is no area you may have forgotten about, and to establish a design for your security system.
Before installing your intruder alarm it's worthwhile contacting your home insurance provider. Some savings can be made to your building and contents insurance from an approved and professionally fitted alarm system installed on your property.
SSAIB (Security Systems and Alarms Inspection Board) or NSI (National Security Inspectorate) approved companies are the leading authorised alarm installation suppliers for the purpose of insurance. The SSAIB and NSI certifications emphasise the company's reliability within the security and alarms sector.
A monitored burglar alarm that connects to the police response team has to be installed professionally and abide by SSAIB or NSI regulations. If you opt for an installation company that doesn't have this approval your alarm will not be able to link to the police response program. It's also worth stating that in order to remain in the police monitoring service you must have your alarm maintained routinely by an approved and accredited company.

Its key function is to provide protection for your premises by giving you a warning before a person gets the chance to enter the building.
Really simple perimeter alarm systems could make a noise like a bell, much like the ones on shop doorways when someone enters the store. More sophisticated perimeter alarms may use infrared detectors, motion cameras, lasers and even ground radar and seismic detection devices to inform you of intruders on your premises.
An effective and simple type of property perimeter security are the hard plastic sharp plastic spike strips that can be easily installed on the top of fences and walls. Whilst they don't sound any alarm, these rigid spikes prevent intruders scaling your walls by creating a painful barrier.
