Home Alarm Systems
Having home alarm systems makes you a target … Yeah and smoking is good for your health!
Maybe in the 70’s, when a system cost the equivalent of £5k, an alarm made you a target. Today most people’s TV’s cost more than a decent alarm system. Ask yourself, “If I was a burglar which house near me would I think was the one that would attract no attention when I break in?”
Plus, statistics show that houses fitted with no security measures are 5 times more likely to be burgled.
Police recorded theft increased by 11% in the year ending June 2017 compared with the previous year and continues the recent upward rise seen in the last two years. This includes rises in all main categories of theft, including burglary at 6%.

Wireless home alarm systems are now super-reliable, European graded, insurance approved and thousands of people are having them fitted. They can be installed in a few hours and not a few days like wired systems. No mess is involved, carpets don’t have to come up and there’s no need for ugly wires and plastic trunking. Protecting a shed or garage is simple and there’s no cables for a burglar to cut. Adding extra sensors in the future couldn’t be easier and best of all when you move house your alarm can move too.
Everyone focuses on neighbours not doing anything instead of focusing on this

Secondly your app will immediately tell you, family and friends who can do something. Thirdly if you have your alarm monitored the police will do something. So if Nigel the Neighbour minds his own business it really doesn’t matter.
