If there’s no bell box… what’s the deterrent? DIY alarm systems do sometimes come without an external bell box. Some alarm system installers are actually fitting alarms without an external bell box too. This can cut costs. It cuts corners… and it cuts down on the effectiveness of your alarm.
Many thieves are opportunists and will pick the easiest target. Making your home look more secure can help to reduce your risk of becoming a victim of theft. If you don’t have any visual deterrents on the outside of your property, it can appear to be an easy target.
Once the intruder enters the property, an alarm which alerts people most often causes them to flee. However at this point, they have already caused damage to the property in breaking in. This could be eliminated with a bell box acting as a deterrent.
