Burglar Alarms Swanage Dorset (BH19): If you're looking at the installation of a burglar alarm system it might be useful to be aware that the rate of crime in Great Britain has been soaring annually. Over the course of the year 2018-19 there were in excess of a million burglaries and robbery attempts in the British Isles, with 422,000 burglaries reported in England and Wales. (Source: Statista, Crime and Law Enforcement data).
Most property owners only enhance their home security system or put in a burglar alarm after a burglary or theft to their property has been committed. Installing a burglar alarm is an investment worth considering, especially when the police in general say that there's far less probability of being the target of the forty seven percent of burglars who carry out their activities on the off-chance. By thinking ahead and looking at the alarm systems that are suitable for your situation, you'll be able to save a good deal of worry and heartache caused by a home or business intrusion. However, with so many different intruder alarm systems for sale, which one is the best for you?
Any budget is catered for across the range of detection and alarm systems. From straightforward battery powered alarms for doors and windows, to full scale, multiple entry point equipment which can call or send a text to you or a security provider in the event that the alarm is triggered. It is even possible to connect a CCTV system into your burglar alarm that will capture any intruders when the alarm is activated. Before choosing a security alarm it's worthwhile considering what you want it to do when the alarm actually goes off.
TYPES OF BURGLAR ALARM
Audible/Visual Only Alarms - These are restricted to an internal or external bell or/and a visual indicator showing that the alarm has been set off. They warn the occupants of the building and local neighbourhood, but accomplish this without contacting anyone, like a security company or your mobile phone.
- The actual alarm box itself is a visible deterrent which can help to deter potential burglars.
- Installing is comparatively quick and easy.
- Quite a few folks have become "alarm immune" and will disregard the alarm.
- Only those in the immediate area are notified if the burglar alarm is set off.
Auto-Dialler Alarm Systems - These have all the features 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 ten contacts can be alerted by voice message or SMS, of any alarm being triggered, with the order set by the burglar alarm owner. If multiple contacts are used then if the first one doesn't acknowledge the message then the next on the list is informed, and so forth until acknowledgment.
- An alarm activation will immediately send a message to inform one of your contacts.
- Monitors to recognise carbon monoxide, fire or flood are also able to be linked to these burglar alarm systems.
- Devices that are SIM only need the card to have the credit topped up before use and may not work in a weak signal location.
- You must have your mobile phone with you, turned on and be in an area with a good signal to receive the alarm message sent out by the system.
Monitored Home Security Systems - A comprehensive security and monitoring program can be supplied by a specialised alarm monitoring and response service in return for a monthly or annual fee. The security company will get in touch when the alarm is tripped to give assistance, and will frequently install and maintain the equipment as part of the overall package. For further security such systems also sometimes have the option of informing the local police force when an alarm goes off in your home or business premises.
- Premises with monitored alarms are less inclined to be targeted by burglars.
- 24 hour monitoring of your business or home by an established security company.
- The contract will frequently cover any repairs and maintenance.
- Expensive termination fees and long contracts.
- Can prove expensive for some people.
- You won't be able to set up this sort of security system yourself.
Smart Home Security - Making use of a mixture of sensors and cameras it's possible to get round the clock coverage of your home or business from anywhere in the world. Log on to the account from your tablet, laptop or mobile to control your alarm remotely, view the status of your system and play back video files.
- Is simple to install and monitor from your mobile phone via an app.
- If you are away from home it's an excellent way to control your home security.
- Poor internet speeds can affect performance.
- Additional equipment and sensors can be expensive.
Portable Alarms - For additional security in sheds and outbuildings these small battery operated units can offer instant and convenient protection. If using for outbuilding security look for standalone systems which have a rechargeable battery and solar power option.
- Light, portable and simple to set up and move around.
- Simple to set up, maintain and cheap to purchase.
- Rather restricted in what security features they offer.
- Frequent replacing or recharging of the batteries is required.
WIRED OR WIRELESS ALARMS?
How do you decide on whether to opt for a wired or wireless security alarm, when you have decided what your exact security needs are?
Wired - If you want to avoid seeing cabling running around your house you'll have to use trunking or chase the wiring into your walls, therefore making installation a specialist task and increasing the overall cost. Once set up the running costs are negligible for a wired alarm system as there aren't any batteries to replace in the alarm siren box, the detectors or the sensors. Having said that, even in a hard-wired intruder alarm there could be a rechargeable battery for power failure use, found in the control unit and external siren box. Some folks in Swanage don't like the sight of wires running around their house.
Wireless - Wireless alarms, although slightly more pricey than a hard-wired system with similar functions, have fallen in price recently making them affordable for everyone. You might be able to install a fairly basic wireless alarm by yourself, but if in doubt it is always a safe bet to use a specialist alarm company, who'll be able to provide advice and guidance through the entire process. For the most effective results, you'll want to have a supply of good quality batteries available for powering the siren box and sensors and change them in accordance with the maker's recommendations.
No matter what burglar alarm you decide on, it's advisable to hire a reputable local company for the installation and maintenance. There are a number of alarm companies in and around Swanage, offering sales, installation and maintenance of burglar alarm systems.
Many burglar alarm companies in Swanage will be glad to work alongside you to come up with the perfect security options for your home. Even if you've fully explained your precise requirements, most burglar alarm installers will ask if they can do a site survey to make sure there is no area that you might have overlooked, and to figure out the perfect design for your system.
Before installing your burglar alarm it's worthwhile getting in contact with your home insurance provider. Insurance firms may offer discounted rates for professionally fitted security systems provided they satisfy their requirements.
It is important to find out if your selected burglar alarm company is an approved provider with either the NSI (National Security Inspectorate) or the SSAIB (Security Systems and Alarms Inspection Board). These accreditations prove to the buyer that they'll be getting the best quality service available from a skilled and trusted supplier in Swanage.
A monitored system which is linked to the police response team has to be professionally fitted and abide by NSI or SSAIB regulations. If you do plan to sign up to the police monitoring and response service you must have proof of accreditation by the SSAIB or NSI from your installation company, and conformation of compliance for your burglar alarm system to their guidelines. If your system generates too many false alarms you could be removed from the police monitoring and response system, and so as to avoid this they require your alarm to be maintained routinely by an approved security company.
