Burglar Alarms Provide Additional Home Security for Your Peace of Mind

Do I need a burglar alarm?  

First check that the general security of your home is taken care of, and consider the situation of your house and the crime statistics in your local area. A burglar alarm can either be essential or provide an additional safeguard and peace of mind, knowing that you have done your best to ensure that your home and family are protected.

Government statistics show that 60% of burglaries on homes fitted with burglar alarms are unsuccessful, which proves that they act as a useful deterrent. Burglars usually avoid breaking into a house fitted with an intruder alarm and look for easier pickings elsewhere.

What about the nuisance of false burglar alarm activation and the doubt as to whether the police will respond?

False alarms can still be a problem depending on the type and quality of the burglar alarm and installation (DIY or professional). However activation of modern home security alarm systems is more often caused by user error.

Yes I am interested in the additional protection offered by an intruder alarm, so what types are available?

Before deciding on the type of home security burglar alarm, check with your home insurance company first. They may offer premium discounts depending on the type of burglar alarm system you fit and the installer you use. This could help make your choice a little easier.

If installing your own DIY alarm, make sure it meets BS6707 requirements. If you are having it professionally installed, ensure your installer meets BS4737 standards. (Now also new Euro Standard EN 50131).
