Domestic Intruder Alarms

What are the Benefits of a Burglar Alarm​

There are many advantages associated with installing an effective burglar alarm system. Needless to say, the most dominant advantage is that of protecting your home against intruders and deterring crime.

Installation of an intruder alarm can also result in reduced insurance costs; this additional measure of protection can decrease your premiums.

The most overlooked benefit associated with installing a burglar alarm is the peace of mind. When leaving your property unmanned for long periods of time you can relax in the knowledge that your burglar alarm is working 24/7, protecting your home against any uninvited visitors.

Hard-Wired Intruder alarms are generally considered to have increased reliability.

Alarms of this variety are often equipped with a central back-up battery, this is a precautional method taken in case of a power outage.

Wired burglar alarms typically offer more versatility, they allow any device or feature to be added simply by wiring it into the system.

Alarm systems of this design generally require professional installation


Wireless intruder systems are typically less troublesome and quicker to install.

Removing the wired element means there is no need for the running and hiding of cables. Wireless burglar alarms operate by sending signals from the detectors to the control panel, this, in turn, triggers an alarm.

Another benefit of installing a wireless burglar alarm is that they can be moved with minimal effort, this means moving home or renovation work can take place without the problematic need for rewiring the alarm system.


Monitored Alarm systems are becoming increasingly popular

Several options are available for monitoring an intruder alarm system. From a simple dialler that can call your mobile directly using your landline, to a 24/7 monitored system connected to a remote monitoring station.

armex are able to source systems that are smartphone compatible. This type of burglar alarm is becoming increasingly popular, allowing the user to remotely monitor their burglar alarm using their mobile phone, or another smart device with an internet connection.


a bells-only alarm is not connected to any form of monitoring system.

In contrast to a monitored alarm system, a bells-only intruder alarm is not monitored and does not notify anybody of a breach. It’s only function is to make a noise. As a result of its reduced service, a bells-only alarm is usually the least expensive and consequently most popular option for the average homeowner.

A bells-only alarm installation relies solely on the assumption that people within the locality will respond to the siren. As such, a bells-only burglar alarm is appropriate for heavily populated neighbourhoods, that are likely to employ a neighbourhood watch scheme. It is expected other residents in neighbourhoods of this variety will respond to the alarm siren, contacting either the homeowner or the emergency services.

However, if your home or business resides in a remote location it is unlikely your alarm siren will be effective as there are little, or no, residents within your local vicinity.  

This type of alarm system does still serve as a visual deterrent and a distress signal.
