Everyone hopes their property is secure and intruders won’t break in and cause trouble. Unfortunately, no residential and commercial property is completely secure so it’s important to take the necessary precautions. Intruder alarms are one of the best precautions you can take because they’ll warn you and the authorities immediately. They’ll also startle the intruder and cause them to leave your property if necessary. At Local Electrical Experts, we can install, replace, or repair intruder alarm systems and help you get more security.
What do you need to know about intruder alarms?
Intruder alarms come in different varieties and offer different levels of security. Most property owners struggle to make the right choice for their requirements and are forced to rely on the internet for information. While online articles are a good source and will explain the systems well, you still need professional assistance to determine which solution is ideal for you. Here’s what you need to know about the intruder alarms.
- Wireless – All established alarm brands offer wireless and hardwired alarm systems. Wireless systems aren’t hard wires and are made of independent units placed around the property that connect wirelessly to the control panel. These systems are considered more streamlined and easy to install and they’re also generally more affordable. But they’re also a little less reliable because the connections between the independent units can fail in rare circumstances.
- Hardwired systems – Hardwired systems are older and considered more reliable before the connection between the independent units and the control panel is more secure. Unfortunately, if this system isn’t installed properly, it’s easy to cut the wire connection between the two components.
- Combination – Most modern alarm systems are a combination of both hard wire and wireless alarms. The main system is wired with the landline phone wire while the other components are connected wireless.
- Different brands and manufacturers – A large number of manufacturers produce intruder alarms and some of these include Ademco, Protege, Aritech, Rosslare, ADT, Alexor, Ness, Bosch, Avolution, Elite, Chubb, Avga, M1, Concept Inner Range, C&K, Crow, CQR8, Das/Hills, Napco, Concord, Fbii, DSC,EDM, KOBI, Honeywell, ITI, MCM, Lynx, Micron, Moose, etc. The number of options available can be confusing for most clients. Our electrician will take time to understand your requirements and offer advice.
