There is no single best type of alarm. The best type of alarm for you will depend on various factors. Our expert team offers a tailored solution to ensure you always receive the best security alarms for your needs.

What is NSI Gold?

NSI Gold is the accreditation awarded to companies who meet the security industry’s highest technical standards. You should always use a security company with NSI Gold accreditation for a trusted service.

Will my security system work during a power cut?

Yes. All our security systems use a backup battery to keep them operating as normal during a power cut.

What are the benefits of a monitored burglar alarm system?

Monitored burglar alarms ensure your premises are monitored 24/7. This means that a suitable response can be taken to an activated alarm even if nobody is on the premises.

How long does it take to install an alarm system?

The length of installation will depend on the type of alarm being installed and the size of your premises. Most domestic alarm systems will be completed in a single day.

This will depend on your insurance company, but most will offer you a discount on your home insurance premium if you have an alarm installed. You will need to speak with your insurance provider for clarification

What is a hybrid alarm system?

Hybrid alarm systems are part wired and part wireless. They are useful options for when some of the system can be wired easily but other components are installed in hard-to-wire areas.
