Ways a burglar alarm can benefit your home or business

With the help of a burglar alarm, you can deter a burglary before it happens. Burglars avoid breaking into properties where there are proper security systems; of course, they don’t want to be caught. If your neighbours have intruder alarms and you don’t, be assured it will be your house they target. The more difficult a task becomes, the more appealing an easier target and less attractive your home becomes. By having a high-quality burglar alarm system installed in your home, you are making it harder for an intruder to break in.

Moreover, a home holds a large number of valuable items like jewellery, mobile phones, car keys, and electronics, meaning homes are the main target for robbers. When you install a burglar alarm system, it gets easy to detect an intruder. There are alarm systems that can even automatically alert the police or call whoever needs to be aware of the danger.

Additionally, by installing a burglar alarm on your property, you will have peace of mind that your property is secure and being monitored even when you are away. In case a break-in happens, your security system will alert you immediately.

A burglar alarm in your home can increase your property’s value? Yes, it is a very attractive feature for prospective home buyers. It gives a sense of safety and security and therefore, has a positive impact on the value of your home.

Deciding on which security alarm system is best for your home or business can be a confusing task, especially for people with no previous knowledge as there is such a wide variety available. Our knowledgeable electricians in Leeds can guide you through the options and help you figure out which may work best for you. Once you have made the informed decision, our talented electricians in Leeds will expertly install the burglar alarm system and let you know how it works and how you can operate it.

Yes your burglar alarm should have a battery backup.

There are two main types of intruder alarms: wired and wireless. Wired alarms are integrated into the wiring of the building either when it is built or when it is renovated. They can be fitted retrospectively, depending on the specification. Generally they need less maintenance. Wireless alarms cause less disruption when installing, however, every device has an integral battery which needs replacing as per the manufacturers recommendation. Both types of alarms work through sensors.

There could be many reasons. A major source of nuisance alarms is when the system is poorly designed or installed. Failure to regularly maintain the system causes problems sooner or later. Failure to close doors or windows, heat sources, pets or drafts can all cause false alarms. A failing backup battery can also be a cause of a false alarm.
