Home burglar alarm systems

How to choose?

If you want to choose the best security system for your home there are some things to understand. Hard-wired intruder alarm systems, which led the field for many years, have been joined by the latest generation of highly flexible, reliable and affordable wireless systems. So which is best for you and your family? 

You’ll also need to decide if your system will be “monitored” (will alert the police, fire service, key-holders and even you on your mobile or at work) or “bells-only” (will just make a lot of noise). What are the pros and cons of each? And what are the costs? 

If you are sure of the kind of system you need, you can go straight to the top of the class – and the relevant section below, to find out more about the system you need.
