Types of Alarms


ALARMS:There are two main types of alarms, Wired and Wireless. And each of these have advantages


Primarily it all depends on your needs when it come to a burglar alarm and for that matter CCTV systems. Alarms Wireless installs are clean, fast and can be use in places wired systems would look unsightly. Wired systems have the edge on reliability (although nowadays not much) and are more difficult to circumvent.

Don’t get confused by the terms wireless and wired, they refer only to the communication system with in the premises. Your chosen alarm, be that wireless or wired are likely to require a wired connection to both power and telephone line in basic alarms and to power only in more advanced or monitored systems. It is these telephone line connections or onboard Sim Card that allows your home alarm to communicate with the outside world and most importantly you.

Put simply a fully wireless system uses individual sensors throughout the install which communicate wirelessly to the control panel, typically using the same technology as radio signals.
A fully wired alarm system connects the sensors to the control panel with wires, often concealed within the walls and floors of your home.

Wireless systems can solve several problems. You won’t have to worry about drilling holes or other modifications as a result making wireless an extremely attractive option for some. But range can be limiting. Wired systems are more reliable, and offer a greater deal of protection. It is important that you take the opportunity to talk over your needs so we can find the solution that is best for your home or business.

CCTV all hinges around two considerations, internal CCTV, External CCTV or Both for combined peice of mind and protection.

Take a moment to look at the mindset of a burglar walking down your road, as they move past the homes and business looking for vulnerabilities, 3 of the 5 premises have an alarm, its reasonable to assume that the most likely targets are the unalarmed ones. Add CCTV and that Burglar, crosses the road, or leaves completely, CCTV takes your security to another level.

But CCTV doesn’t come with out its restrictions on use, but not really in any negative way. The government provide a frame work of regulations that provided they are met, your CCTV recordings are admissible in court as evidence. These rules are there to protect those who could be inadvertently filmed by your CCTV and does not restrict the use of CCTV in and on your own property. In short, the CCTV must be to protect your property and/or land and warning notices must be displayed.  Full Details can be found here
