Why does your home need a domestic intruder alarm?
The home is the one place we should feel completely at ease and safe. With the advancements in technology, it has never been easier to protect your home and belongings from criminals. There are now even systems that can be linked to your smartphone, allowing you to control your alarm remotely. You can fit each entry point to your home with a sensor that automatically triggers an alarm.
Our domestic intruder alarm systems include:
Magnetic reed switches – Reed switches are fitted to doors and work by creating an electrical circuit when together, and triggering an alarm when the connection is broken if the door is opened.
Alarm bells – An external alarm containing a loud siren lets everyone know there is a potential burglary in progress. They also contain a strobe that gives a visual as well as an audible warning.
Motion Detectors – These sensors are positioned in the corner of a room to maximise coverage.
Control panel – The heart of your alarm where the communication links are located if you have a remote signalling system linked to your home alarm system.
Keypad – This is where you control your alarm system and where information on its status is displayed.
Remote control and fobs – Using a programmed fob or radio remote control, you don’t have to remember complicated codes! These can be used to set and unset the system with a simple swipe or press of a button.
