  • Bells-only Alarms – make a noise, but don’t contact anyone (such as the police or you).
  • Dialer Burglar Alarms – automatically dial your phone number, or that of nominated friends and family, when the alarm is triggered.
  • Smart Home-Security Systems – contact you or family members when the alarm goes off through a smartphone or tablet app.
  • A Police Monitored System – means you pay a company monthly or annually to take action to call the police if the alarm goes off.

Wired or Wireless Alarm System:

  • Next step is to work out if you would like to opt for a Wireless Alarm System or the traditional Wired Alarm system.

Dialler burglar alarm

You may not be comfortable with the idea of relying on a neighbour to let you know if your alarm goes off, then the next alternative is to consider a dialler alarm. With a dialler alarms, the dialler will contact you when your alarm is triggered. This means that you or they can then contact the police or ask a neighbour to investigate the issue. There are two types of dialler alarm: Speech diallers use your landline to call the numbers you have assigned.

This means you’ll need to have a landline, and wires connecting it to the alarm. GSM diallers use mobile network signals, so you don’t need a phone line and there’s no need to run wires. But you will have to buy a Sim card and make sure it’s topped up with enough credit to make the calls when needed. You’ll also need to make sure your home has a strong mobile phone signal before you go ahead.

Smart home-security systems

Smart home-security systems connect to your smartphone or tablet. This enables you to be alerted when your alarm is triggered.

These systems also allow you to control your smart security from your phone, even when you’re away from home.

This can be extremely beneficial, for example, if you’re out and you can’t remember if you turned your security alarm system on, you can simply login to the mobile app and check and even active it with ease. There are a lot of different accessories which can be connected to your smart home security.
