The primary purpose of Essex security alarms is to be a deterrent to any potential criminal. In most cases having a security alarm installed in your home or business is enough of a deterrent to criminals but at times you may need the added security of having your Essex security alarms monitored by a company who will be notified should your alarms be activated. This extra security will give you the added peace of mind when you are on holiday or away from your home or business.

We have all heard a security alarm going off, but no one seems to be doing anything about it or want to get involved as it is not there property and don’t want to come across a crime in action. This is where having the extra monitoring of your alarm by a security alarm monitoring company works best as they will take the required action and contact either the police or a contact on the action list.

Which security alarm is right for you?

The right Essex security alarm for you will depend on what your needs are. Is it for a domestic or commercial property, do you need a CCTV system, door entry systems for access control, infra-red to movement sensors or a monitoring alarm?

Your budget and size of the property will also make a huge difference in the type of alarm you choose from the huge range of systems available, but no matter what your budget there is an alarm suitable for every property and budget.

Hard Wired Alarm or Wireless Alarm?

Which alarm system is best for you? Do you go for the wireless alarm that is easier to install or the hard wired alarm which takes considerately more time but may require less maintenance?

Hard Wired Alarms

A hard wired security alarm will need to be installed by a professional as there are British Standards that need to be met and conformed to. Any hard wired system once installed will have these standards in your documentation to say it complied with these regulations.

Hard wired systems as they sound need to be wired in to your property. These extra installation costs will increase the cost of having your Essex security alarm system installed but once installed they generally do not require any further maintenance and are considered more reliable and robust.

Wireless Alarms

Wireless alarms are less disruptive to install as there are no cables to run or holes to be drilled, this will of course reduce the installation costs.

The advantage of having a wireless alarm apart from it being cable free is that these systems are portable so can be easily moved from home to home.
