It is a sad fact that many folks only think of putting in a burglar alarm or intruder detection system after they have already been robbed. With the police in general saying that since 47% of robberies are committed on the off-chance and you're less likely to be burgled if you've got a system installed, it is certainly a worthwhile investment.

When you've decided what you want your burglar alarm to do, and what areas you need it to protect, do you need to have a wired or wireless alarm system?

Wired - If you don't wish to see cables running around your house you'll need to use trunking or embed the wiring into your walls, thus making installation a specialist task and increasing the costs. Once set up the running costs are virtually zero for a wired alarm system as there aren't any batteries to replace in the detectors or alarm siren box. Be aware that even with a wired alarm system there might be a backup rechargeable battery, in case of power failure, found in the exterior siren and in the control box. If not fitted properly the wires can look untidy as they run around your house.

Wireless - Prices for wireless systems have fallen dramatically since the early days making them more cost effective than in the past. You may be able to install a fairly basic wireless burglar alarm system by yourself, but if in doubt it is always a safe bet to use a specialist alarm company, who will be able to provide guidance and advice through the entire process. Decent quality batteries are necessary for all sensors and the alarm siren, and they will need to be tested on a regular basis.
