Statistics reveal that in every 14 seconds, a burglar breaks inside a home, and even though a home may be occupied, there is still a 60 percent chance of burglaries happening. This statistics only show that a burglary can happen any moment, anywhere, and anyone, maybe even to you.

For this reason, installing a burglar alarm system in your home can help in securing the safety of your family and your properties. A visible, external, alarm helps in discouraging the intruders and deters break-ins.

Alarm Features

The detection features of a burglar alarm can comprise devices that perceive motion, changes in room temperature and vibration. The main features of a system are: –

  • Control panel: the power source of the home burglar alarm located in the garage or at the rear of a cabinet.
  • Security keypad: situated at a home’s entrance, you can arm or disarm the system and you can enter a pass-code for security.
  • Motion detectors: These are set up in the indoor walls, windows, air-ducts, and doors. They can detect the intruder that’s breaking-in before they enter the property.
  • Contacts: This is a magnetic switch situated on the window frame and door jams which triggers when opened by an intruder.
  • Glass-break-sensors: this triggers the system when shock waves created by the breaking glass are detected and is transformed to electrical signals.
  • Backup system: Here, the alarm works when the power fails.
  • Two-way monitoring: Through this the authorities may able to speak with the home’s occupant through a security keypad.
  • Fire protection: This determines for possible fire occurrence through the level of smoke and heat detected inside the room. There may be a connection to the fire brigade they can immediately respond just before the fire spreads.

Monitored Alarms

When a monitored alarm system detects illegal entry it will immediately send a warning sign to the central monitoringburglar alarm location. These monitoring centers are nationwide and provide continuous service. And the moment they receive the alarm they will alert the local police to send the authorities to your home.

Protecting you home and family

Installing a home burglar alarm can be very helpful in protecting your family and then your possessions. However most people decide to install a home security after they encounter a burglary rather than acting in advance and protecting their family.

If burglars roam around your village and discover that in five houses three have burglar alarms, and the other two don’t have them, where do you think they will go?

The common reason for putting off installing an alarm is the perceived expensive costs which is not the reality. Remember even the burglar alarm warning sign is a frequent deterrence to compel the burglar to the next house.

So, it is preferable to install a burglar alarm especially if you are living in an isolated place, or in the areas where there are frequent crimes.

    I have a British Gas alarm system that is currently being maintained by Dyno Secure.(my name is Mark Gillespie and the system is at my home address:- EDIT – removed for privacy)

    The system started ‘beeping’ this morning (just over 2 hours now and it’s really beginning to annoy!).I need to get it stopped but cannot find anything about it in the alarm manual, i’ve looked through other paperwork to find a telephone number but cannot seem to locate one.

    Can you help me please?
