Choosing Intruder Alarm Systems

We are ready and eager to help you install and maintain the perfect intruder alarm system for your Essex property. However, the market of devices is varied, with improving technology implementing new features on a regular basis.  As such, here are some of the different variations of intruder alarms that you need to consider.


  • Bells-only: These audible alarm systems have no means to reach out to you, the police, or any other devices. They only make a loud noise when the sensor is disturbed, which can be effective at stopping a crime in place. Due to their relative lack of features, they are incredibly cost effective, but they should mostly be used in areas where your home is surrounded by neighbours you know and trust to act on the noise.
  • Dialler: These intruder alarms make a loud noise just like bells-only but can also call any number that you have put into the system. The system will try to call every number programmed into it, moving onto the next number if the previous one is not available. As such, it offers a much better chance that someone will be able to act on a triggered alarm.
  • Smart home systems: These relatively new intruder alarm systems are connected to all sorts of digital devices through the home’s Wi-Fi. Not only does this mean that they can alert you to a potential intruder halfway across the world, but they can alert you through your phone, your tablet, your laptop, or otherwise, helping you respond to a crisis all the sooner. 
  • Police monitored: Like dialler systems, these intruder alarms place a call, but they alert the police directly instead of anyone else, who can respond much more quickly as a result. There is no guarantee that the police will always be available to act upon it at the scene, but they can inform you as well. The one downside is that a monthly fee comes with this service.


Our team is on hand to help advise you on your options if you’re not certain which you should choose. For instance, if you run a business with highly valued assets in the property, police monitored CCTV is almost always recommended.


Wired or wireless?

Wired alarm systems are cheaper to buy, initially, but can be expensive to initially install since the wires have to be run through the home and hidden away. Wireless alarms cost more initially, but don’t have labour costs quite as high. Rather than communicating by wires, these systems signal to a radio panel using radio signals. Besides tending to look a little more aesthetically pleasing, you can also easily add additional sensors to wireless alarm systems and install them in a new home once they’ve been removed from the older one.


Why install an intruder alarm system in Essex?

  • To reduce the risk of having your home targeted by having a visible security system on the exterior of the home.
  • To alert anyone inside the home, as well as those around it, to an attempt at a home invasion, helping to prevent the worst possible scenarios.
  • If the system can contact you directly, have peace of mind when away from home, knowing that you can organise a response even if you’re not immediately available.
  • Increase the value of your property. More and more homebuyers are conscious of safety features and are willing to pay for them.
  • Cut the costs of home insurance with security devices that reduce the risk that you will have to make a claim in the first place.
  • 24-hour protection of the home, day and night.
