An intruder alarm is a great way to protect properties of all types, from residential dwellings right through to commercial buildings and other business premises.

The thing all of these buildings have in common is that they are private places, with possessions and other valuables inside to which you do not want to allow unauthorised access.

With an Intruder Alarms in place, you are given several reassurances – not only the knowledge that the visible deterrent of an external alarm box will dissuade would-be intruders from attempting entry, but also the fact that should they attempt to gain entry anyway, you will be alerted to that fact.

Together, this should give you the peace of mind that you have done all you can to protect your home or business, and that the likelihood of any misadventure being committed against you is as minimal as possible.

But it’s not just property that is protected by an intruder alarm; it can be people, as well.

With an alarm in place, you will be made aware if somebody breaks in, allowing you to protect yourself, notify the emergency services if necessary, and take steps to repel the intruder – again, only if it is appropriate and safe to do so.

Alarms are available that use the Redcare link to provide a direct and secure connection to a remote monitoring station, meaning an incident will always be noticed and responded to, even if your premises are unoccupied at the time.

Wireless fobs for domestic alarm systems essentially act as a remote control – no more sprinting from the alarm box to the door on your way out of the house, or creeping along the wall to avoid tripping the alarm after setting it before bed.

For large commercial alarm systems meanwhile, internet access means you can monitor the status of your premises remotely, just as Redcare might do on your behalf.

And when it comes to setting up your alarm system, there are plenty of options too, so that you can detect intruders in the most appropriate way for the premises or home you are attempting to secure.

Most people are familiar with normal intruder alarm motion detectors, those little blinking boxes that perch in the corner of the room, keeping a watchful eye on things.

But you might not be aware of the option of using vibration detectors to pick up on movement, even in locations where visibility might be poor or obstructed, making normal motion detectors unsuitable.

Alternatively, window sensors mean the moment a window is opened when it shouldn’t be, the alarm can be triggered – one of the fastest ways of all to detect an intrusion.
