Intruder Alarms Halifax
If you are searching for intruder alarms in Halifax then read on. In the near four decades that we’ve been trading then there is one trend we can recognise – when the economy is bad and unemployment is going up then burglary increases!
We have been providing intruder alarms for Halifax businesses and homeowners for almost 4 decades and we’ve seen many fads arrive and leave. The latest being Wi-Fi only, plug-and-play alarm systems. Over time the test of whether an innovation in this arena prevails or not is decided by the criminal fraternity.
An intruder system that you can unbox, plugin, link to an app and then ask Alexa or Siri to turn on seems wonderful – our guess is that the thieves think it is too! If a bell box isn’t securely fixed, then attacking it or throwing it in into water is easy … or just pinching it could be a possibility! If there is no exterior sounder and flashing light, high on the outside wall then what deterrent is there?
Countless studies and criminal research finds that intruders are put off by a recognisable intruder alarm and CCTV cameras. Criminals seek out the easier option. If they only discover you have an alarm once they’ve broken into your building then the damage is already done.
Using a compatible app with your system is good practice, even if supplementary. It is crucial that the burglar alarm performs as a robust security system regardless of an app. The ability to remotely set and unset your intruder alarm, monitor it’s status and accept push notifications is a real boon. However, we all understand that smartphones and the internet are a reliable communication path most of the time but if you were sent an alert by your system at midnight on old year’s night how soon would that reach your phone? Supplemental apps are a super extra feature to an alarm system but the system itself must firstly provide a deterrent and also warn thieves and your neighbourhood, should a housebreak happen, notwithstanding power outages or lack of internet connectivity.

We pointed out above that whether new security innovations stand the test of time is decided by thieves – this is true, however there are other groups who influence this decision. Let’s just say this – before you order your plug-and-play voice activated alarm, ask your insurance company what they think! … Just saying Google!
