Burglar Alarm Installers Near Me

Unfortunately, many criminals are looking to steal or damage your property. Burglaries can be incredibly distressing, not least because of the emotional impact they cause. However, there are many ways you can protect your home including installing a burglar alarm. If someone enters your property who shouldn’t be there, then a loud alarm will sound. Many burglar alarms are also linked to external security companies or even the police.

Burglar alarms are installed by qualified professionals. If you are ready to help protect your property, or perhaps update your existing burglar alarm, then we’ll connect you with the best local security and alarms installers.

Choosing a Security Alarm Installer

How to install a Burglar Alarm

A burglar alarm consists of several components that work in tandem to detect suspicious movement in your home. The main visible piece of kit is an external alarm, which needs to be visible to deter intruders, but also out of reach so that it cannot be tampered with. Inside your property, place several motion sensors in key areas such as the living room. Another option is to have a security door chime. This will play a sound every time your front door is opened. Also by your front door will be a keypad, and if the code is not entered correctly the alarm will sound. The above can either be installed by yourself or preferably by a security expert who will ensure everything is working correctly.

Different types of Security Alarms

Residential and commercial security is becoming ever more high tech. While there are various smart security systems you can have installed, the following are some of the most popular types of burglar alarms.

  • Bells-Only Burglar Alarms - A type of alarm that will make a loud noise (usually above 110 decibels) which will alert your neighbours. However, they don’t link to you if you are not at home or abroad. There’s also no guarantee your neighbours will respond to the alarm. Their main appeal is the fact they are visible on the front of your home, which often is enough of a deterrent in itself.
  • Police-Linked Burglar Alarm - If an intruder is detected then the police will immediately come and investigate. Police-linked alarms offer the utmost peace of mind. They can, of course, be triggered accidentally and do require a monthly subscription. However, if you have previously been broken into or are worried about crime, this will offer you the highest level of protection.
  • Dialler Burglar Alarm - A dialler alarm is linked to up to 10 contacts. When your alarm goes off, instead of simply sounding a noise like most burglar alarms, it will directly notify those in your contacts. A dialler system is excellent for commercial premises, or if you want peace of mind while on holiday.
  • Wireless Burglar Alarms - Wireless burglar alarms can be installed by anyone, and run on batteries instead of the electrics. They tend to be more expensive than traditional burglar alarms and require wiring to each of the sensors. They are often preferred due to their sleek appearance, so they won’t disrupt the decor of your home.

How to check your Security Installer’s credentials

To ensure your professional is an experienced, trusted provider of burglar alarms, you should check their credentials. For example, are they registered with any relevant trade bodies? The Security Systems and Alarms Inspection Board (SSAIB) or the British Security Industry Association (BSIA) are just two names to look out for.

Can you buy Burglar Alarms online?

Absolutely. However, by consulting a professional and being linked to their system that will monitor any suspicious activity, your home will be much better protected. Whatsmore, a professional installer will know the best places to position your equipment. If you are unsure it’s always best to consult an expert.

What are the best ways to prevent intruders?

In addition to installing an intruder alarm, there are several steps you should take to protect your property. For example, installing CCTV especially above doorways or windows that could be accessible to intruders. Placing a security light above the camera will also show a clearer picture on the CCTV, and immediately alert the person that they can be seen. Upgrading your windows and doors so that they are secure is also a great step. If you need further advice about crime prevention, then the security company you choose to install your intruder alarm may be able to help.

How much does a Burglar Alarm cost to install?

Factors which determine the cost of installing a burglar alarm include the complexity of the system you have installed, and where you are based. If the alarm simply makes a noise and is not linked to any contacts or the police, then this will be cheaper.

What to look for in a Security Alarm Installer

For your safety and peace of mind, opt for a company and package that is comprehensive in what it provides. While a regular burglar alarm is still better than nothing, it’s certainly worth your money upgrading to a system that is linked to your phone and has motion sensor technology. Having a dialler system on the door is also excellent because only those who are trusted with your pin will be allowed in without the alarm sounding.

Whether it’s an overly active pup or a curious cat, it’s easy for our pets to accidentally trigger alarms that are activated by motion sensors. Pet-friendly alarms can be configured to ignore certain sizes, shapes, or weights, meaning your pet can move around undetected. If you’re not sure which alarm would be best for you and your (furry) family members, your installation expert will be able to steer you in the right direction!

By having a well-fitted and regularly maintained burglar alarm, you’re far less likely to become a victim of burglary. In fact, the sight of an alarm alone is enough to deter an intruder from breaking into your property! In the case that an intruder does break-in, a well-installed burglar alarm will immediately alert you of any authorised entry.

While you can install security systems yourself, hiring a professional will ensure it’s a hassle-free process. It also means that your system will be set up by someone who does the job day in, day out - so you can rest assured it’ll be installed properly and fit for purpose. Installation fees are a small price to pay for knowing that you can count on your security system working exactly how it should.
