It's well worth considering, before purchasing your home alarm, what its designated purpose is.
TYPES OF BURGLAR ALARM
Visual Only/Audible Alarms - These alarms are restricted to an internal or external bell or/and a visual indicator that the alarm has been set off. This type of alarm will alert occupants and neighbours but does not report the occurrence via voice message or SMS to a mobile phone.
- The actual alarm box itself is a visible deterrent which can help to deter potential burglars.
- Installation is relatively quick and easy.
- Only occupants and those in the immediate area are informed if the intruder alarm is triggered.
- Regrettably folks will simply ignore the alarm.
Auto-Dial Burglar Alarms - While sounding a bell or siren to warn anyone in the local area, these burglar alarms can also send text or voice messages to chosen contacts. This allows the alarm control unit to send out a voice or text message to pre-arranged contacts with some alarm systems allowing several contacts to be included in a cascade-style system of phoning. This means that if someone does not respond, the next individual in line is called and told about the issue.
- Additional carbon monoxide, fire, smoke and flooding sensors are available to be linked to many systems of this kind.
- Messages are sent as soon as the alarm has been triggered by the device.
- There must always be sufficient credit on the SIM that is inserted in the alarm system.
- You might be unavailable or in a weak signal area when the text or voice message is transmitted.
Contract Security Monitor Alarms - A professional security team will monitor your burglar alarm and security systems for a fixed annual or monthly fee. The company will get in touch when the alarm is tripped to offer assistance, and will typically install and maintain the alarm system as part of the package. These burglar alarms can also be connected to a police response unit for greater security.

Wired - Initial costs could be less costly than a wireless alarm system, but installation can be challenging and cost more, due to the extra time required for routing the cables.

Some folks in Billingham don't like the sight of wires running around their home.
