Types of security and alarm systems

Anyone who is concerned about protecting their home, business premises or possessions, especially in areas where crime is prevalent, will likely invest in a security and alarm system. There are various types of security and alarm systems, ranging from the basic armed response when the alarm is triggered, to the more sophisticated systems which may be monitored by the users themselves. The choice of system can easily be adapted to suit each individual’s requirements and budget.

Modern security systems are extremely sophisticated, and some of them even allow the users to control or “automate” their homes from remote locations via linked smart phones. Users can personally monitor their homes from work or whilst on holiday through strategically placed closed circuit cameras, to assure themselves that all is well.

Advantages of security systems

Having a security and alarm system has many advantages for the homeowner. It will undoubtedly reduce the cost of insurance premiums, alert the potential intruder that the home is secured and monitored and therefore deter a spontaneous break-in, allow for quicker response to emergencies by the security company or the police, provide assurance that the premises is safe to enter after dark, help prevent vehicle hijacking in your own driveway, and provide a “panic button” for immediate response if the occupant is surprised by an intruder.

A system may be set so as not to sound an audible alarm when triggered and therefore not alert the intruder, but instead sends a direct radio signal to the security company. It may alternatively activate a siren which emits a loud, piercing alarm which is useful if the security company is unable to immediately reach the premises for any reason. This is often enough to scare off an intruder before help can arrive.

How to choose the right security and alarm company

There are many well-known names in the security industry, which provides the home or business owner with a wide choice when it comes to choosing the right company, but it is always recommended that you read online reviews in your particular geographical area to see which companies have the fastest response rate and highest satisfaction ratings from clients. Word of mouth is often the wisest method of selecting the security company which will suit your individual needs, as you will have first-hand personal recommendations. It is obviously better to steer clear of any companies which might have poor write-ups and slow response rates. During the initial consultation, ensure that the company can provide you with all of the specific requirements you ask for, or can provide reasonable and viable alternative suggestions.
