Why You Need A Home Intruder Alarm

Essential to any home is a Home Intruder Alarm. As well as scaring off intruders, an alarm can alert your family of the break in for their own safety. Even if your street is statistically safe, it is still important to remain cautious.

To stay safe, here are our top reasons for installing a home intruder alarm.




Whether you are inside your home or out for the day, a Home Intruder Alarm can provide reassurance. Having access to 24/7 monitoring can lift a huge weight off your shoulders. As soon as the alarm sounds, you can act and call for help before it’s too late.

An intruder alarm is also beneficial if you have no one free for house sitting while you are away on long haul holidays, providing you peace of mind that your home is not being disturbed while you are away.


Reduced Costs

Some insurance companies favour homes which go the extra mile to install extra security features to protect their home. Strengthening your home security can encourage cheaper prices from insurance companies, as you are less likely to be broken into.

In addition, having a Home Intruder Alarm to deter criminals can help to reduce repair costs. Without a deterrence, your locks may be picked, windows may be forcefully opened, or your fencing can become damaged by intruders.


Home Value

Having a home security upgrade can help to contribute to making your neighbourhood safer am therefore, making your home a more desirable property than before. This will benefit you when putting it on the market, as you can reflect the safety in your asking price.




Unsurprisingly, 99% of burglars target vulnerable properties without a burglar alarm system to reduce their chances of being caught. Therefore, having visible security on your home can work successfully as a deterrent. Even if they manage to gain entry to your home, as soon as the alarm sounds it will attract attention and most likely chase them away.

In addition to a Home Intruder Alarm, consider installing cameras, higher fences and stronger door and window locks.
