Intruder Alarms

A large percentage of home and business owners don’t have a fully working intruder alarm, one of the main security precautions on the market today.

If you have an intruder alarm that is faulty, requires replacing or you simply don’t have an alarm but have considered installing one then look no further.

A local resident had part of her intruder alarm upgraded 8 years ago by a handyman, the alarm stopped working efficiently; the system was hard to use and kept sounding in the middle of the night.

We took a look at the alarm with an on-site survey. The parts used previously were incompatible with the system, the internal battery which acts as a backup in case of power loss had been disconnected and the panel was a complete mess internally.

We upgraded the system to a new easy to use home standard panel, created new entry and exit points whilst maintained the situated cable.

The alarm has been successful and the amount of false alarms have been reduced by 95%

We support many local residents and businesses on their intruder alarms and other security products such as security lighting and CCTV.

We provide you with the essential intruder alarm tools whilst working around your interior decor for minimal disruption.

 

The alarm reduces the chance of burglary 66.2 percent when three or more precautions are taken by the homeowner.

Intruder AlarmThere are four basic types of precautions which must be provided to significantly reduce the chance of burglary:

  • Deterring Measures: These are security measures which are likely to lower the chance of a break-in when the burglar cruises the local area in search of a target. Burglars search for homes that appear to be unoccupied. Thus, deterring measures suggest that somebody is at home. For example, a car in the driveway, motion sensitive exterior lights, interior lights, and radios and TVs on timers, all give the impression that someone is in the home.
  • Preventive Measures: These are security measures which make the actual break-in more difficult and/or time consuming. Burglars spend no more than 60 seconds breaking into a home. Measures which rise this time may cause burglars to change their mind. Some examples include deadbolt locks, bars on windows, and pins in sash windows.
  • Detection Measures: These are measures which detect the presence of an intruder on the premises and send a message out. Only a burglar alarm serves that purpose.
  • Managerial Measures: In nature, these measures are in the deterrence category. They are not physical precaution measures like the three previous categories but are associated with the deterring category in their objective, which is to produce the impression that somebody is home. They include stopping newspaper and mail delivery, notifying police when you will be away, and having local residents watch your home.
