Do you set your house alarm at night?Many people set their house alarm at night and lots of our customers tell us they wouldn’t be able to sleep without it. During lockdown, some people have made comments like “We haven’t needed to use the alarm because we’re at home all the time”, which have set alarm bells ringing (excuse the pun!) This has led us to wonder whether you’re setting your alarm at night. You are, aren’t you?
Should you set your house alarm at night?If you set your house alarm at night, it means you’d be alerted as soon as anyone gained entry through a door or a window. Your neighbours would also be alerted to your plight. A monitored alarm would automatically notify the alarm receiving centre who in turn contact key holders or police. A ringing alarm is often enough to send an intruder scarpering. The police agree that you should be setting your house alarm at night.
“If you have a burglar alarm always remember to switch it on when you leave the house or when you go to bed”
