Here at BWS Security Systems we take home security seriously. With a number of years’ experience in the industry, we have put together our top tips on how to pick the right burglar alarm system for your property.
It is important to think about what you want when choosing an alarm system, as matching your needs is one of the most important considerations.
There are a variety of types of alarms out there, all of which have their own benefits and plus points; so take your time and make sure that this is going to be the perfect security investment for you.
What do you need?
Before you decide on your alarm system it is important to sit down and list exactly what you expect and want from it. There are a few considerations to keep in mind.
- Do you want remote access? Alarm systems offer a range of different methods to activate and deactivate it. This can come in the form of key fobs or the push of a button. However, there are also systems that have been designed with remote access in mind. These can be connected to your smartphone; allowing you to make changes at the touch of a button.
- Will you need any additional security measures? For some people, an alarm system alone is enough for peace of mind. However, there are also people who will want to install some additional security measures. Often this is with CCTV and it is important that you select a security alarm system that can work alongside your surveillance equipment.
The different types of alarm systems
Now you know what you need from an alarm system you can start to look at the different varieties that are available for you to install in your home.
- Wireless and Wired
Alarms can be wired or wireless. Generally, people opt for wireless alarms because they not only look better but they can also be moved from house to house.
If you are looking for a basic alarm system, then this sound only alarm is ideal. If triggered it sounds a loud noise, however it will not notify the police or a named contact. While this may be okay for a home that only needs minimal security; it isn’t suitable for everyone.
