There are two main categories of intruder alarm: wired and wireless. Wired alarms are integrated into the wiring of a property either during its build, or when it is renovated. Wireless alarms on the other hand work via sensors that are connected to a control panel through radio signals. Wireless alarms are ideal for retrospective fits and where you don’t want to go to the trouble of channeling cabling into walls. Both types of alarm work through sensors. These could be for example a vibration, door contact or passive infra-red detector. Once the sensor is initiated it sends a signal to the control panel which then in turn activates an alarm. The alarm itself can take different forms: it may emit an audible tone, or it may be both audible and visual, i.e. a bell and a flashing light. There are also alarms that send signals to remote alarm receiving centre’s which then go on to inform your choice of personnel, such as a key holder or the police. Which type of alarm you choose should be something you discuss with Best Security, as they will be able to guide you as to the right model for your particular property and level of risk.
False alarms are a common concern, but there are a number of steps you can take to avoid them. Firstly, ensure the alarm system is professionally maintained by BEST Security. This will ensure that any potential issues that may activate the alarm outside of its normal operation will be identified and dealt with. Secondly, make sure the back-up battery is fully functional. Next, check that all your doors and windows are secure and properly fitted otherwise they may activate the alarm when they are agitated, for example during strong winds. And of course you’ll need to make sure you only enter the premises through the entry route that has been designated during the set-up of the alarm system. If you are concerned about whether your pets will set the alarm off, opt for a special pet tolerant model. Be sure to discuss this with BEST Security during the consultation stage so that we take it into consideration when designing your system.
