TYPES OF BURGLAR ALARM
Visual Only/Audible Alarms - These are limited to an internal or external bell or/and a visual indicator that the alarm's been set off. This type of alarm warns neighbours and occupants but does not report the occurrence via voice message or SMS to a mobile phone.
- Having any type of alarm installed can deter burglars as reported by the police.
- Installation is comparatively quick and simple.
- False alarms in past times have rendered people "alarm immune".
- Only occupants and those in the immediate locality are warned if the security alarm is activated.
Auto-Dial Alarm Systems - These have all the functions of an audio visual security alarm, but is also able to send a SMS text via a prepaid SIM card or send a voice message to a landline. Typically up to 10 contacts can be alerted by SMS or voice message, of any alarm going off, with the order determined by the owner of the alarm. This sort of messaging device can be programmed to only send alerts to those listed until the notification is acknowledged.
- Extra sensors can be added to warn you of carbon monoxide, flood or fire.
- Communications are sent as soon as the alarm has been triggered by the device.
- You must have your phone with you, turned on and be in an area with a good signal to receive the message sent out by the system.
- Mobile phone signals might not be transmitted or received in locations with a weak signal and you have to make sure the credit is topped up on the SIM.
Monitored Alarm Systems - A full security and monitoring package can be provided by a specialized alarm response company in exchange for an annual or monthly fee. The company will contact you when the alarm sounds to give assistance, and will quite often install and maintain the equipment as part of the package. For extra security these systems also sometimes have the choice of informing the local police when an alarm goes off in your home or business premises in Sleaford.
- System maintenance and repair is often covered in the agreement.
- The additional security measures of monitored alarms intimidate thieves.
- Round the clock monitoring of your business or home by an established security company.
- Installation must be undertaken by a professional.
- You might be tied into an extended contract with costly termination fees.
- Costs can vary depending on levels of cover needed.
Smart Home Security - Making use of a combination of sensors and cameras it is possible to get 24 hour coverage of your business or home from anyplace on the planet. Sign in to your account from your tablet, smartphone or computer to control your alarm in real time, see the status of your system and play video clips.
- Is easy to install and monitor from your mobile phone using a secure app.
- If you're out of the house it is an easy way to manage your home security.
- Poor internet speed can affect the reliability of your burglar alarm.
- Compatible extra sensors and equipment can be costly.
Portable Alarm Systems - Such battery powered devices add an additional layer of security in areas where short-term alarm systems are needed. If using for outbuilding security try to get independent alarms that have a solar powered option and rechargeable batteries.
- Ideal for travelers who are constantly on the move who need to add some extra security to their accommodation.
- The cheapest and easiest of all the alarm alternatives to set up.
- Batteries have to be changed regularly.
- Offers fairly restricted security with limited uses.
WIRELESS OR WIRED ALARMS?
As soon as you've decided what you need your burglar alarm to do, and the areas it needs to cover, is it best to have a wired or wireless system?
Wired - If you want to avoid seeing cables running around your home you will have to use cable strips or chase the wiring into your walls, therefore making installation a specialist task and increasing the initial outlay. Once fitted the running costs are minimal for a hard-wired system as there aren't any batteries needed for the detectors or alarm siren box. Servicing is limited to dusting sensors and checking any battery backup in the external siren box and the control unit on a routine schedule as laid out by the manufacturer. If not installed with care the cables can look untidy as they run around your house.
Wireless - Prices for wireless systems have dropped sharply since the early days making them far more cost effective than previously. They're also far easier to fit, and even a householder with fairly basic DIY skills should be able to have a wireless alarm installed and operating in no time at all. A wireless alarm requires the sensors, siren and other external detectors to have fully charged up batteries on a regular basis, to keep the device functioning properly.
For the best results, you should always bring in a reputable alarm installation company to install and set-up your burglar alarm. You can find various contractors and burglar alarm companies in the Sleaford area who'll help you in your choice of burglar alarm system to meet your needs.
Some burglar alarm installers in Sleaford will work with you to come up with the perfect security options for your property. Even if you have explained your precise requirements, most burglar alarm installers will want to do an on-site survey to ensure there are no areas you may have missed, and to establish a design for your security system.
Before installing your burglar alarm system it's worth to contact your building and contents insurance provider. Savings are there to be made on your building insurance by getting a professionally fitted and approved intruder alarm installed to your home.
You should verify that your chosen burglar alarm company is a recognised provider with either the SSAIB (Security Systems and Alarms Inspection Board) or NSI (National Security Inspectorate). Such credentials prove to the consumer that they'll be receiving the best service available from a trained and trusted supplier in Sleaford.
A monitored intruder alarm linked to the police response unit has to be professionally fitted and adhere to NSI or SSAIB guidelines. Without this evidence of accreditation and alarm system compliance you'll not be able to connect to the police monitoring and response service. Yet another thing to consider if you take the police monitoring option is that your alarm system has to be maintained by an accredited company in order to minimize false alarms and to deliver secure and reliable protection.

CO Carbon Monoxide Alarms Sleaford
The installation of a carbon monoxide alarm should be a priority as an element of your entire home's protection and security system in Sleaford. To keep your family safe and sound it is best to integrate a carbon monoxide (CO) alarm into your current home alarm system to provide round-the-clock protection.
A CO alarm examines the amount of the gas in the air and will trigger a warning if dangerous levels are reached. By alerting you before the gas reaches a critical level, it allows you plenty of time to ventilate the contaminated area and get your family outside. If any family member is feeling flu like symptoms after escaping your property because of a CO alarm you should keep them in a well-ventilated area and call an ambulance right away.
If you ventilate the area involved the CO alarm will automatically shut off when the amount of gas in the air reduces to safe levels once more. Should you experience a triggered CO alarm in your home in Sleaford you will have to contact an authorized Gas Safe technician to inspect your property's ventilation and heating system.
