A burglar alarm system is a worthwhile investment for protecting your home or business premises. Studies show you are far less likely to be the victim of an intruder if you have a well-maintained intruder alarm installation.
Audible intruder alarms are ones that sound a bell or siren when activated. They can also activate security lights and deliver an alert to a smartphone, tablet or desktop computer.
The primary purpose of an audible intruder alarm is to disturb the would-be burglar and to alert neighbours or anyone passing by. Surveys suggest that intruder alarms are ineffective as alarm bells can be ignored or 'written off' as false alarms.
However, audible alarms can be useful in places like Neighbourhood Watch areas where there is usually a more security-conscious ethos. They can also work as a visual deterrent prompting would-be burglars to look elsewhere.
The drawbacks of not having any burglar alarm system installed can be dramatic, as crime figures show:
An intruder alarm system uses electronic components to alert the user to any interloper. Sensors are usually installed at vulnerable points and connect to a central control hub via low-voltage wiring or a wireless link. Sensors can be of various types. Some can 'sense' the opening of a door or window while others 'detect' movement with passive infrared PIR. Systems can also alert to fire, gas, flood or carbon monoxide.
