Alarm systems

Burglar alarms are electronic security systems which are designed to protect the perimeter of a property as well as the contents, against intrusion, theft and any damage. Some insurance policies require homes to have an alarm in place. Alarm systems are available wired or wireless. Some alarm systems come equipped with a key fob, making it more convenient if you are coming home with shopping  etc if you can’t make it to the alarm system in time to disarm it, you can simply action this from the key fob.

CCTV cameras

CCTV – close circuit television is a security set that records activity and events in the areas they have been installed. If your home is often unoccupied throughout the day, having a camera in place is more likely to deter a burglar away. So not only will having a CCTV camera installed in your home offer high security, it will give you every minute of detail to enable you to see what is taking place around your home and may provide evidence for the police if a crime is committed
