Burglar Alarms Whitby North Yorkshire (YO21): With the crime rate climbing annually there's rarely been a more appropriate time to fit a burglar alarm for your business or home. In 2018-19, out of 1 million reported attempted burglaries in Great Britain, 422,000 resulted in an actual burglary on a property in England and Wales alone. (Source: Statista, Crime and Law Enforcement figures).
It's a dreadful truth that a lot of households only look into the possibility of installing an intruder alarm after a burglary on their property. With police reports saying that as forty seven percent of break-ins are perpetrated on the off-chance and you are less likely to be a victim of burglary if you have a security system installed, it is definitely a worthwhile investment. Avoid the worry and heartache caused by a burglary by installing a security system which is appropriate for your home or business. Picking a burglar alarm that matches your needs can be something of a challenge; how do you work out which kind to go for?
There are alarm and security equipment available for all budgets. From simple battery operated alarms for doors and windows, to full scale, multi entry point systems that can call or send an SMS text to you or a dedicated security company when the alarm is set off. In addition there are wired and wireless solutions, and several can be connected to CCTV cameras to capture any burglars for later identification. Think about your own location and surroundings before choosing a home alarm and evaluate what type of alarm system is best for your situation.
TYPES OF BURGLAR ALARM
Visual Only/Audible Burglar Alarms - These alarms are restricted to an external or internal bell or/and a visible indication that the alarm's been set off. They alert the building occupants and local area, but raise the alarm without communicating with anyone, for example your mobile phone or the police.
- Installing is relatively quick and easy.
- Having any form of intruder alarm fitted will deter burglars according to the police.
- A lot of folks these days have become "alarm immune" and will disregard it when it goes off.
- Only those in the immediate area are warned when the burglar alarm is triggered.
Auto-Dial Security Alarms - This type of burglar alarm can be connected to your landline or have a mobile SIM card fitted. Multiple contacts can be added via the burglar alarm control unit to be contacted in a predetermined order. If multiple contacts are allowed then if the first person does not acknowledge the message then the second on the list is sent a message, and so on until verification.
- You will be informed the moment the alarm's triggered.
- Extra smoke, carbon monoxide, flood and fire sensors are available to be connected with many systems of this kind.
- You may be in a weak signal area or be unavailable when the voice message or text is transmitted.
- There's always got to be sufficient credit on the SIM card that is used in the alarm's control panel.
Monitored Alarms - A complete security and monitoring program can be provided by a professional alarm monitoring and response service in exchange for a monthly or annual fee. The company will respond to any alarm to offer assistance, and will invariably install and maintain the alarm system themselves as part of the overall package. These burglar alarms can also be connected to a police response unit for even greater security.
- Prospective burglars are much more likely to be put off by a monitored burglar alarm.
- Your intruder alarm is constantly tracked and monitored for emergencies by a reliable security firm.
- The agreement will normally include any alarm routine maintenance and other repairs.
- Expensive cancellation fees and long contracts.
- Alarm installation and maintenance can only be undertaken by a company representative.
- Costs can vary according to level of cover needed.
Smart Home Security - By using a mixture of cameras and sensors it's possible to get round the clock coverage of your business or home from anyplace around the world. Log into the account from your computer, mobile or tablet to play back video recordings, control your alarm remotely and view the status of your system.
- Can be installed easily and monitored from your mobile phone via an app.
- You don't have to be in your house to manage your intruder alarm.
- Can become expensive if additional sensors are required.
- Reliant on data or internet signals for notifying the homeowner.
Portable Alarm Systems - Such battery powered gadgets add extra security cover in places where temporary alarm systems are required. If using for garden building security look for independent alarms which have a solar panel option and rechargeable batteries.
- Light, portable and easy to set up and relocate.
- Simple to put in, maintain and inexpensive buy.
- The security functions offered are very limited.
- The batteries will need to be changed frequently.
WIRED OR WIRELESS?
Now you know just what you need from your burglar alarm system in terms of coverage and features, which is likely to be the best for your property; wired or wireless?
Wired - Typically cheaper than a wireless burglar alarm, providing an identical level of security, but the fitting of a wired alarm can cost more due to the additional labour involved in running the cables through your home. Operating costs are virtually zero for a wired alarm since there aren't any batteries required for the alarm bell box or the sensors. Having said that, even in a hard-wired burglar alarm there might be a backup rechargeable battery, in case of power failure, found in the exterior siren and in the internal control box. If the wires are not hidden the cables can look unsightly.
Wireless - Wireless burglar alarms are no longer the costly devices they once were, with many excellent systems available at competitive prices. The basic alarms are also simple to install by anyone with a moderate level of do-it-yourself expertise, however for the more complex systems it is preferable to use an experienced security installation company. You will need to have a fresh supply of batteries available for the sensors and sounder box and change them according to the maker's recommendations for the best results.
For the best results, always bring in an established alarm installer to fit and service your burglar alarm. There are a number of alarm companies in and around Whitby, providing everything from sales, installation and servicing of burglar and security alarms.
A decent Whitby security company will take notice of your requirements and provide you with a burglar alarm that will be an appropriate match for your situation. To supply you with the best possible service there will be an on-site survey which not only considers your alarm needs, but may also provide suggestions for other security measures that can be enhanced around your home.
Before any installation takes place, check your buildings insurance policy to see if you're entitled to a discount on your building and contents cover. If you're able to satisfy your insurers alarm standards, you may be surprised to receive a discount on your policy charges.
You will need to check if your chosen alarm installation company is an accredited provider with the SSAIB (Security Systems and Alarms Inspection Board) or NSI (National Security Inspectorate). Such accreditations demonstrate to the buyer that they'll be getting the best possible service from a trusted and qualified provider in Whitby.
A monitored alarm system that's linked to the police response unit must be professionally fitted and comply with NSI or SSAIB guidelines. Without this alarm system compliance and proof of accreditation you won't be able to hook up to the police monitoring and response service. It's also worthwhile saying that in order to stay in the police monitoring and response service you are required to have your burglar alarm serviced and maintained on a regular basis by an accredited and approved security company.
