Conclusion: we recommend...

If you simply need a visible deterrent and to make some noise to scare off a would-be intruder, then a Bells only system may suffice and is probably the cheapest option. But, will your neighbours react? See our alarming survey results.
If you're out at work during the day but would like to know if your alarm has been activated, a Speech* or GSM Dialler that calls you or a nominated person is a good option. You pay a one off fee for the dialler unit and then just for the calls if it is activated.
*Read our note here about year 2025.
A more modern version of a dialler system is self-monitoring which uses your broadband connection (or 3G networks) to communicate with you via a secure smartphone app. With camera PIRs installed a self monitored alarm system can even send you visual verification in the event of an activation.
If you would like the police to attend when your alarm is activated, the minimum option is a Digicom monitored system maintained by a recognised alarm company. Remember you will have to pay an annual monitoring subscription and maintenance fee to the alarm co.
For extra security, the Single path signalling system notifies you if the signalling path is tampered with. Again, there's an annual subscription and maintenance fee.
For a very secure signalling device that complies with stringent insurance requirements, Dual path signalling is the choice for you. Pick a system that works with the communication channels available on the premises.
Whatever system you decide on, make sure that it complies with your home insurance company's requirements, if applicable. You may even get a discount on your insurance premium too, so it's certainly a good idea to phone them and check this before you commit to buy a specific system.

If you're still unsure which is the right security system for your property and budget, we can arrange a free home survey and quotation for you - simply click here to get started.

Maintenance and service packages and prices may differ too, so it's worth spending time gathering quotes for comparison.
