Frequently asked Questions

What types of alarms can you offer?
We offer a wide range of alarms such as wired house alarms, wireless burglar alarms, business alarms, Audible only alarms or monitored alarms, smoke alarms for domestic or commercial premises.

How does the monitored alarm work?
Monitored alarms connect to an Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC) which is a remote central station manned 24 hours a day 365 days a year, via a telephone line, radio or IP network. The monitored alarm sends signals to the ARC when the alarm is set or unset, if it detects intrusion or burglary, smoke or fire, when a personal attack button is manually activated or there is a fault with the system such as electrical mains failure. The ARC verifies the alarm signals and takes the appropriate course of action such as alerting the owner, key-holders and or Police or fire authorities.

Can I have an alarm system that is not monitored?
YES. You have other options such as an Audible only alarm which makes a loud audible noise to deter intruders or alert the neighbours of a break in.

Would I be able to set my burglar alarm at night?
YES. Your alarm allows for full setting when you go away, part setting of a section of the premises or outdoor building, and night setting such as alarming the ground floor whilst keeping upstairs and the bedrooms unalarmed.
