Protecting your home, your belongings and your family from the threat of intruders is of great importance, with many people taking extra steps to ensure their property is fully secured. From CCTV, dead-bolted doors to motion lights, the options available are varied enough to suit all domestic environments. Alarms systems can add value to a house, and it’s a question estate agents will often ask when valuing a property. When it comes to choosing an intruder alarm, there are a number of things to consider to ensure that you end up with the most suitable solution to your specific property’s needs.
The security installer and provider
Choosing your alarm installer is a major decision. Checking for relevant accreditations as well as considering their reputation within the industry.

Type of alarm system
At Jensen Security and Fire Systems we will be able to provide you with advise you on this decision. Technology is changing constantly: remote and wireless alarms now provide an effective solution, with a number of sensor triggers and keypad operation options available, including operation via apps on smart phones. Monitored alarms are ideal for those who are regularly away from home, as all incidents are monitored from a central location and key holders or, in some cases, the police are notified in the event of a triggered alarm. Having an idea about where your home is most vulnerable will help to determine the alarm that you choose. Take all possible access points into account, including front doors, back doors, windows and garages, and consider alarm options accordingly in relation to motion sensors and other components.
Additional security features
Home security doesn’t stop with residential intruder alarms. While an intruder alarm plays a highly important role in any security system, when used in conjunction with other security features your property becomes far less vulnerable to intruders. Consider door entry systems – ideal for flats – to monitor those entering the building, or CCTV to act as both a visible deterrent and to gather evidence in the event of a break-in.
