Burglar Alarms Newton Aycliffe County Durham (DL5): If you're thinking about the installation of a home alarm system it is useful to know that the crime levels in the British Isles have been growing every year. Reports show that there were more than 1 million attempted break-ins and burglaries in the United Kingdom during the year 2018-2019, and from this number in England and Wales alone there were approximately four hundred and twenty two thousand reported burglaries from property. (Source: Statista, Crime and Law Enforcement statistics).
Most householders only enhance their home security or put in an intruder alarm after a burglary or theft to their property has been committed. Installing an intruder alarm is an investment worth considering, especially when the UK police say that there's less probability of being a target to the 47% of thieves who carry out their activities on the spur of the moment. By thinking ahead and looking at the available systems which are suitable for your situation, you can save a lot of stress and heartache that will be caused by a home or business intrusion. However, with so many different burglar alarms out there, which is the best for your house?
Budget restrictions need not be an issue when picking out your perfect burglar alarm in Newton Aycliffe. Where price isn't an issue a security provider will fit, maintain and monitor your security alarm for you, whereby at the other end of the spectrum, there are straightforward, battery operated appliances that can be set up and running in an hour or two. Most of these alarm systems can be purchased in wired or wireless versions and may even integrate with a security system or CCTV device to capture events for photographic and video evidence. It's worth thinking about, prior to purchasing your home alarm, what its designated purpose is for.
TYPES OF BURGLAR ALARM
Audible/Visual Only Alarms - The simplest of home alarms, where a siren and pulsating light outside of the premises gives an obvious indication that the alarm has been triggered by something or someone. They notify the occupants of the building and local neighbourhood, but do so without contacting anybody, such as the police or your mobile phone.
- Simple to install.
- Having any sort of alarm fitted will deter burglars as reported by the police.
- Regrettably people will simply disregard the alarm.
- Knowledge of the intruder alarm is limited to those in close proximity.
Auto-Dialler Security Systems - These have all of the features of an audio visual security alarm, but can also send a voice message to a landline, or send a SMS text via a prepaid SIM card. Normally up to 10 people can be alerted by voice message or SMS, of any alarm sounding, with the sequence determined by the owner of the alarm. If multiple contacts are used then if the first one does not respond to the notification then the next one on the list is informed, and so on until verification.
- An alarm trigger will immediately send a communication to inform one of your contacts.
- Extra fire, flood, smoke and carbon monoxide detectors are available to be connected with many systems of this kind.
- There must always be sufficient credit on the SIM card inserted in the alarm system.
- You must have your mobile with you at all times, turned on and be in a good signal area to receive the alarm message from the device.
Monitored Alarms - A specialist security service will monitor your security systems and burglar alarm for a fixed monthly or annual fee. The security company will respond to any alarm to offer assistance, and will invariably install and maintain the equipment as part of the overall package. If you also need the service of a local police response unit, the monitored burglar alarms often have the ability to connect to them directly.
- 24 hour monitoring of your business or home by an established security company.
- Alarm maintenance and repair is usually included in the deal.
- Potential thieves are much more likely to be intimidated by a monitored burglar alarm.
- Can prove very expensive for some.
- You are unable to set up this type of system yourself.
- You might be tied into a long contract with costly termination charges.
Smart Home Security Systems - Using a mixture of sensors and cameras it's quite possible to get round the clock coverage of your home or business from anywhere across the world. Log on to the account from your tablet, computer or smartphone to view the status of your system, control your alarm remotely and play back video recordings.
- An ideal way to monitor your home or business if you're frequently travelling.
- Can be installed easily and monitored from your smartphone via a secure app.
- The costs can increase rapidly if more sensors or detectors are needed than in the basic package.
- The system depends on decent internet speeds and phone data signal for the application to work reliably.
Portable Alarm Systems - For extra security in outbuildings and sheds these small battery operated devices can offer convenient and instant protection. Solar panels are a feature of some devices to provide power to an in-built rechargeable battery.
- The cheapest and easiest of all the alarm systems to install.
- Can be relocated to fullfil exact requirements.
- Fairly basic security which only provides a local alarm in case of intrusion.
- Frequent recharging or replacement of the batteries is necessary.
WIRELESS OR WIRED ALARMS?
Once you have decided what you need your alarm to do, and the areas it needs to cover, is it advisable to have a wired or wireless burglar alarm?
Wired - If you do not wish to see cabling running around your house you'll have to use cable strips or chase the wires into your walls, thus making installation a specialist task and pushing up overall cost. Once set up the running costs are virtually zero for a wired alarm system as there aren't any batteries needed for the detectors or alarm siren box. Having said that, even in a wired intruder alarm there might be a backup rechargeable battery, in case of power failure, located in the external siren box and in the control unit. If the wires aren't hidden the cables can look rather unsightly.
Wireless - Wireless alarms, though slightly more expensive than a hard-wired system with similar functions, have fallen in price making them affordable for everybody in Newton Aycliffe. The basic alarms are also quite simple to install by anyone with an average level of DIY knowledge, but for the more complex security systems it is advisable to use an experienced security installation company in Newton Aycliffe. You will have to have a fresh supply of decent quality batteries available for the sensors and bell box and swap them in line with the maker's recommendations for the most effective results.
Though it is possible for you to install a burglar alarm system on your own, it is usually recommended that you hire the services of a professional burglar alarm installer. You can find many installers and burglar alarm companies in the Newton Aycliffe area who will help you in your choice of burglar alarm system to make certain your security needs are fulfilled.
A professional Newton Aycliffe burglar alarm company will carefully consider your requirements and provide options that match your precise needs. Even if you have fully explained your precise requirements, many burglar alarm installers will ask to do an on-site survey to ensure there are no areas you may have forgotten about, and to establish a design for your burglar alarm set-up.
Speak to your home or business insurer before installation, to see if there might be a reduction on your policy for an acceptable security alarm system on your premises. Some savings are there to be made on your building and contents insurance from a professionally fitted and approved alarm system installed on your home.
The leading recognised alarm installation suppliers for insurance purposes must be Security Systems and Alarms Inspection Board (SSAIB) or the National Security Inspectorate (NSI) accredited companies. The NSI and SSAIB certifications showcase the company's credibility within the security and alarms sector.
A monitored intruder alarm which is linked to the police response unit has to be professionally installed and observe NSI or SSAIB regulations. If you do elect to join the police response unit you must have evidence of accreditation by the NSI or SSAIB from your installers, and proof of compliance for your burglar alarm system to their regulations. It's also worthwhile stating that to be able to remain in the police response service you must have your alarm serviced regularly by an approved and accredited security company.
