These systems can support a greater number and larger variety of detectors. They use our high security double-skin Rapier® external sounder as standard. The Rapier is made from stainless steel and is impervious to the weather as well as being highly resistant to attack by thieves.
Monitored (Police response) Home Burglar Alarms
A Monitored Home Burglar Alarm provides valuable extra security compared to its bells-only counterpart. Simple monitoring via your existing phone line is not as expensive as most people think, and gives a very real improvement in security. And now we even have "Dual-path" systems so that an alarm can still be sent to our monitoring centre (and then the police) even if theives cut the phone line!
