Burglar Alarms Wednesfield West Midlands (WV11): With the level of crime rising each year there's never been a more appropriate moment to install a burglar alarm for your business or home. In 2018-19, out of 1 million reported attempted burglaries in Great Britain, four hundred and twenty two thousand resulted in a robbery of a property in England and Wales alone.
It is a sad fact that most people only think about installing a burglar alarm and CCTV after they have already been robbed. Because 47% of burglaries are described as being on the off-chance by the UK police, the advice is to deter potential burglars by installing a security alarm system to your home or business. You'll find there are a wide range of burglar and intruder alarm systems available to suit your budget and alleviate fears about the possibility of a burglary. But precisely how do you pick out a home security system or intruder alarm that's right for you?
Budget restrictions don't have to be an issue when picking out your perfect burglar alarm in Wednesfield. From simple battery powered alarms for doors and windows, to full scale, multi entry point equipment which can call or send an SMS text to you or a dedicated security company if the alarm is activated. It's even possible to connect CCTV cameras into your alarm that will record any thieves when the alarm is triggered. It is worthwhile considering, before buying your home alarm, what its designated purpose is for.
TYPES OF BURGLAR ALARM
Audible/Visual Only Burglar Alarms - The least complicated of security alarms, where a siren bell and blinking light outside the property provides an indication that the alarm has been set off. The siren or bell, coupled with flashing light will only notify people in or near the premises where the alarm has been tripped.
- Police forces all over Great Britain claim that any security system will discourage break-ins.
- Relatively simple to install.
- Only occupants and those in the immediate locality are warned if the burglar alarm is activated.
- Many folks nowadays have grown to be "alarm immune" and will ignore it when it rings.
Auto-Dialler Security Alarms - These have all of the features of an audio visual intruder alarm, but can also dial out via landline to send a pre-recorded voice message, or send a SMS text via a prepaid SIM card. This permits the control unit to send a voice or text message to designated contacts with some examples allowing multiple contacts to be included in a cascade system of phoning. This means that if the first person doesn't answer, the next individual in line is called and made aware of the issue.
- Additional detectors can be added to warn you of fire, carbon monoxide or flood.
- You'll be notified the moment the alarm is set off.
- Devices that are SIM only require the card to be topped up before use and may not work effectively in a weak signal area.
- You may be unavailable or in a weak signal area when the voice message or text is sent.
Monitored Alarm Systems - A specialist security service will monitor your intruder alarm and security systems for a fixed annual or monthly fee. These companies supply an all in one solution by fitting, maintaining and monitoring your burglar alarm and contacting you when the alarm is activated. For extra security such devices may also have the option of informing the local police force when an alarm goes off in your home or business premises.
- The extra security measures of monitored alarms intimidate burglars.
- 24 hour monitoring and response by a professional team of security and alarm specialists.
- The package will normally cover any repairs and maintenance.
- Equipment installation and upkeep can only be done by the company themselves.
- Monthly or annual fees can prove quite expensive.
- Long contracts and costly termination charges.
Smart Home Security - By using a mixture of cameras and sensors it's possible to get 24 hour coverage of your business or home from anywhere on the planet. Log on to the account from your laptop, tablet or smartphone to play video files, view the status of your system and control your alarm in real time.
- The secure application and software can be installed on several digital gadgets, such as laptops, tablets and smartphones.
- You don't need to be in your home to manage your intruder alarm.
- Reliant on internet or data signals for notifying the homeowner.
- The costs can increase rapidly if more detectors or sensors are required than in the standard package.
Portable Alarms - These are small gadgets designed for instant use and to provide security when travelling, or for extra protection for garden buildings where mains power is not available. A solar power function now comes with a lot of of these portable alarms.
- A cheap and cheerful alternative for temporary installation due to their ease of use.
- Can be moved to fullfil needs.
- Frequent replacing or recharging of the batteries is essential.
- Offers limited security with limited uses.
WIRED OR WIRELESS ALARMS?
Now that you know what you will need from your burglar alarm in terms of coverage and features, which is best for your house; wired or wireless?
Wired - Initial costs can be a little less expensive than a wireless alarm system, however installation can be complicated and cost more, due to the extra time required for laying the cabling. A hard-wired system is low maintenance and cost effective to run, requiring only mains electricity for the system to function. Be aware that even in a wired security alarm there may be a rechargeable battery for power failure use, located in the external siren box and in the control box. If the wires aren't hidden they can look rather unsightly.
Wireless - The prices for wireless burglar alarms have dropped dramatically since they first came on the market making them far more cost effective than previously. You might be able to install a basic wireless burglar alarm system by yourself, but for peace of mind it is generally safer to bring in a specialist installation company, who will be able to provide advice and expertise from start to finish. You will have to have a fresh supply of good quality batteries on hand for the siren box and sensors and change them as outlined by the maker's guidelines for the most effective results.
Whichever kind of burglar alarm you decide on, it is generally best to hire a reputable local company for installation and servicing. You will be able to find many installers and burglar alarm companies in and around Wednesfield who'll help you in selecting a burglar alarm to fit your needs.
A decent Wednesfield security company will listen to your concerns and come up with a system that will be the perfect match for your precise circumstances. Even if you've described your exact requirements, many burglar alarm installers will ask to do a site survey to make certain there is no area you may have missed, and to come up with a design for your burglar alarm set-up.
Prior to any installation, check your insurance policy to find out if you're eligible for a discount. Some savings can be made to your building insurance from a professionally fitted and approved security alarm installed on your property.
It is essential to find out if your chosen alarm installation company is an accredited provider with the SSAIB (Security Systems and Alarms Inspection Board) or NSI (National Security Inspectorate). By using the services of an accredited security company in Wednesfield, you can trust the working practices, confidentiality and professionalism that are the hallmarks of a top notch burglar alarm installer.

If you do decide to sign up to the police response team you will need to have proof of approval by the NSI or SSAIB from your installers, and verification that your intruder alarm conforms to their regulations. It's also worthwhile saying that in order to remain in the police monitoring service you have to have your alarm system maintained routinely by an accredited and approved security company.

Smoke/Fire Alarms Wednesfield
Fire and smoke alarms are necessary in all homes in Wednesfield, and can be linked very easily into most home alarm systems. Smoke and fire detectors can be wired and wireless and can be built into a security package if you are investing in a brand new security alarm system.
Basic smoke alarms can be powered by batteries so that they can be easily installed in any room of your house.
