Audible Intruder alarms for home and business

Home » Burglar Alarms » Audible Alarms

A burglar alarm system is a very worthwhile investment when it comes to protecting your home or family. Studies reveal that you are far less likely to become the victim of an intruder at home if you have a correctly fitted and well-maintained intruder alarm installation.

Audible intruder alarms are those that sound a bell or siren when activated. These type of alarm systems may also activate security lights, and they can even send an alert to a smartphone, tablet or computer.

The central idea of an audible intruder alarm is to scare the would-be burglar and to alert neighbours or passers-by. Reports often suggest that intruder alarms are ineffective because alarm bells can go largely ignored by those living nearby.

However, audible alarms can be very effective in Neighbourhood Watch areas where there is more active monitoring of the local neighbourhood. They also provide a visual deterrent because thieves will not know if an audible alarm system is part of a more comprehensive security package.

The drawbacks of having no burglar alarm system installed can be dramatic, as crime figures show:

  • Homes with no security measures in place are five times more likely to suffer a burglary.
  • It is estimated that 93% of burglars steer clear of homes with visible intruder alarms.
  • Around 74% of attempted burglaries are abandoned when an intruder alarm goes off.

Audible burglar alarm installations

An intruder alarm system has electronic components designed to alert the user to any interloper. Sensors are connected to a control unit via low-voltage wiring or a wireless link. Shock sensors or magnetic reed contacts can indicate the opening of a door or window or motion detectors can detect movement through via passive infrared PIR. Systems can also incorporate fire, gas, flood or carbon monoxide alarm sensors.

The systems installed by Crown Securities UK are individually designed by our experienced engineers who have an extensive knowledge of home security systems and professional design backgrounds. Each system can be fully configured to the individual customer's needs. All our installations are guaranteed, and response alarm installation is carried out by trusted, highly qualified and security-vetted staff.

Wireless security systems

Wireless burglar alarm systems are growing in popularity; mainly a result of recent improvements in the quality of the electronic components. Your wireless alarm system will take less time to install as it requires no drilling or wiring, and it offers the opportunity to upgrade features and equipment when thy are required.

The wireless alert system is also portable, so it can move with you to your new home. It is also relatively easy to reinstall in a new home. Also, as there are no alarm cables to be cut or damaged, a wireless response alert is often much easier to maintain.

Wired security alarm systems

Wired alarm system

Wired alarm systems use alarm cable wiring to connect sensors to the control panel. All wire cables installed by Crown Securities UK will wherever possible, be laid in a discrete manner. The wires are typically hidden by passing cables through existing wall cavities or using 'hidden' areas of the home such as the loft space. However, there may be occasions when cables cannot be concealed in this way, and trunking may be used to cover the wires.

Hybrid wired/wireless security systems

Hybrid alarm systems combine the aspects of wireless and hard-wired sensors. Hybrid set-ups can combine a robust system with good expandability and give the customer the best of both worlds. Audible burglar alarm installations can also be wireless, causing less disruption to furnishings and décor while extra security detectors can fitted with ease at a later date.
