Intruder Alarms

Intruder Alarms

We have been installing and maintaining intruder alarm systems for domestic and commercial properties for 9 years. We are a Security Systems and Alarms Inspection Board (SSAIB) registered company, which means that all of our installations and maintenance visits are regulated to conform to standards set by the SSAIB.

As well as new installations, we offer the option to undertake a maintenance agreement on an existing intruder alarm system. The price and amount of visits per year for this varies with what type of alarm system you have installed, also the standard of installation that is in place. If this is not working correctly it could be that we need to quote for remedial works before taking on the agreement.

When we install a new alarm system automatically after a year has passed we contact you with the option to have the maintenance agreement, though in the case of a monitored system (police response) this is covered in the price for the monitoring costs and includes a service visit every 6 months.

These types of system installations are available:




Bells Only Systems

Bells only alarm systems operate where when the alarm activates the external and internal sounders sound only, but the alarm does not notify anyone of the activation. This is the most basic type of alarm system available.

Speech Dialler System

The speech dialler system operates by when the alarm activates the internal and external sounders sound, and the speech dialler installed to the alarm system calls a specific number(s) to advise that the alarm is activated. This can be a pre-recorded message by the client or just a normal message. The speech dialler will automatically dial the designated numbers chosen simultaneously. If one number does not answer the dialler will continue dialling other numbers, until the client resets the speech dialler over the phone, or from the alarm panel itself. This option is the next step up from the bells only system.

Redcare Monitored System

The monitored system operates by when the alarm activates the internal and external sounders sound, and the GSM unit installed goes through to an alarm monitoring station (ARC) via a BT landline, who will then contact the police and keyholders to attend the property. This is the highest level of intruder alarm system that is available and find this is mainly popular amongst the commercial sector as it is an insurance requirement. This option is the most expensive option of the three, though offers the most security protection with the police response.
