Burglar Alarms Ilford Essex (IG1): Escalating crime rates in Britain indicates that right now is a perfect time to look at fitting a burglar alarm system in your business or home. In 2018-19, out of 1 million attempted burglaries reported in Britain, 422,000 resulted in a robbery of a property in England and Wales alone.
Most householders only upgrade their home security or put in an intruder alarm after a burglary or theft to their property has already been perpetrated. Installing a burglar alarm is an investment worth looking into, particularly when the police in Ilford say that there's less probability of being targeted by the 47% of criminals who operate on the off-chance. Avoid the stress caused by a burglary by installing an intruder alarm system which is suitable for your business or home. But, with such a lot of burglar alarm systems out there, which type is the best for your house?
There are security and alarm equipment designed for all budgets. From straightforward battery operated alarms for doors and windows, to full blown, multiple entry point equipment that can call or send an SMS text to you or a security provider if the alarm is triggered. There are also wireless and wired alternatives, and most can be connected to CCTV cameras to film any burglars for later identification. Before choosing your intruder alarm it's well worth thinking about what you'd like it to do if the alarm actually goes off.
TYPES OF BURGLAR ALARM
Visual Only/Audible Burglar Alarms - The simplest of security alarms, where a blinking light and siren outside the building gives a clear indication that the alarm has been set off. They alert the occupants of the building and local area, but raise the alarm without communicating with anybody, like a security company or your phone.

- Only occupants and neighbours in the immediate area are notified if the security alarm is activated.
Auto-Dial Security Alarms - This type of alarm can be linked with your landline or have a cell phone SIM card installed.

WIRELESS OR WIRED ALARMS?
How do you ascertain whether to go for a wireless or wired intruder alarm, when you have worked out what your exact security requirements are?
Wired - Generally cheaper than a wireless burglar alarm, providing the same level of security, however the installation of a wired alarm will probably more because of the additional labour in wiring up the system. The operating costs are negligable for a wired burglar alarm because there are no batteries required for the sensors or the alarm bell box. Be aware that even with a wired intruder alarm there may be a backup rechargeable battery, in case of power failure, located in the exterior siren and in the control box. If not installed carefully the wires can look untidy as they run around your home.
Wireless - Wireless burglar alarms, though slightly more pricey than a hard-wired system with the same functions, have fallen in price to make them affordable for everybody. They are also far easier to install, and even someone with basic DIY skills should be able to have a wireless system up and running with very little effort. You'll have to have a fresh supply of decent quality batteries on hand for the sensors and siren box and change them as outlined by the maker's recommendations for the best results.
Though it is possible to install a burglar alarm system on your own, it is generally recommended that you hire the services of a professional alarm installation company. In Ilford you have a good choice of companies available, and it's best to get several quotations.
