- Which alarm system to avoid being buggered senseless?
Depends how much you want to spend and functionality.
Personally having had one go wrong recently (surge killed main board) I’d recommend a professionally fitted alarm with a maintenance contract. Given the choice if access to floor boards is easy I’d go with a wired system, loud siren and loud internal siren (hurts ears when going off)Posted 1 year agozzrmattMember
Are you looking for bells only DIY type fit or a monitored professional alarm that will be insurance approved?
May be worth looking at Texecom bits from http://www.securitywarehouse.co.uk/
Other than that patlock on french doors http://www.patlock.co.uk, higher spec door handles to prevent euro lock snapping http://security-hardware.co.uk/mila-prosecure-pas-24-2-kitemark-door-handle-92mm-122mm-screw-to-screw-chrome-dh-4677-ch and an anti snap lock.
None of which stops a brick through the glass and them getting in and out with some of your stuff if they really want in.Posted 1 year ago
Houses two doors either side of me have both had their back doors done in the last year. Feel a bit like there’s a set of crosshairs over mine.Posted 1 year ago
Any alarm system recommendations? How much do you need to spend in order to get something that’ll do the job for an average semi?arrpeeMember
Ahhh, my first satirical clone thread. I really feel like I’ve arrived.
Strangely, some of the answers are as useful as those on the original thread.
In answer to the OP, just make sure you don’t leave any implements lying around the garden. My neighbour had his back door pryed open with his own shovel.Posted 1 year agomitsumonkeyMember
I think CCTV could be more of a deterrent, you could fit a system yourself (Swann are good) have an app on your phone that allows you to access the cameras when you are away from the property. Stick signs up making people aware you have CCTV too.Posted 1 year ago
Back it all up with a self fit YALE wireless alarm.
That’s what I’d do.
