Anti-theft system

Anti-theft system, which one to choose?

Learn about the different types of anti-theft system available on the market and read advice from our electrical experts on how to decide which one is right for you.

According to the latest statistics, you are less likely to become a theft victim if you have a well-equipped and well-maintained anti-theft system. This means that installing an anti-theft or alarm system is a worthwhile investment.

The best alarm for your home depends on your personal preferences, your budget, where you live, the structure of your home and the level of protection you are looking for. To help you make the right choice, read the article, where we will explain what you need to consider before buying a new anti-theft device.

The different types of burglar alarms:

First, you need to decide what you’d like to happen when a burglar alarm goes off:

  • The alarm that emits an annoying sound alert via internal and external sirens, which warns us of an intrusion.
  • The alarm and security system that uses the most advanced technology and is easily manageable by the whole family thanks to the new application to control the safety of your home or business.
  • The anti-theft system that warns the user in the event of an alarm, through a phone call with a pre-recorded message, or a text message.
  • Or install an anti-theft device which, after it is triggered, the police will intervene.

Wireless wireless anti-theft:

The second decision to make is whether to install a wireless or traditional wired burglar alarm system. Wireless alarms use battery-powered sensors that communicate with a control panel via radio signals.
These alarms tend to look nicer and are generally easier to install – you can also install it yourself. You can easily add additional sensors and remove the system when moving to another home. It’s much less complicated than the wired versions.
However, wireless systems are more expensive and are sensitive to storms and other forms of bad weather as these can reduce signal strength, causing the system not to work at its full efficiency.

Wired alarm systems, on the other hand, need cables and require masonry work. These systems may be cheaper to buy. But they are more expensive to install – the wires need to be hidden, so labour costs are higher.

The traditional anti-theft system

The traditional burglar-alarm system, unfortunately, cannot intervene in any way against the intruder. It is therefore of fundamental importance to have good alarm signalling systems that can induce the attacker to escape or that, otherwise, can reach the least possible time someone able to do it.

Telephone dialer Dialer for anti-theft alarm

Anti-theft systemIf you are not comfortable with the idea of ​​relying on a neighbour to let you know if the alarm is activated, you may want to consider installing an anti-theft dialler. With these alarms, the communicator will contact you when the alarm is triggered. This means that you or they can then contact the police to investigate the problem.

The advantages of this anti-theft are:

  • You won’t have to pay for a tracking contract.
  • You will be notified when the alarm is triggered.
  • If you buy one with additional detectors, it can also warn you of other dangers, such as fires, for example.

Instead, the disadvantages are:

  • You may not be available when you are notified.
  • If you choose a GSM dialler, a weak mobile network signal will affect its effectiveness.
  • If you have a voice communicator, you must have a landline and will have additional wiring in the house.

Intelligent anti-theft

Smart home security systems connect to your smartphone or tablet. This means that when the alarm will activate, it will notify you. These systems also allow you to check your security from your phone, even when you are away from home.

The advantages:

  • It alerts you when you are away from home.
  • You can monitor and control it from your smartphone.
  • You can set up an intelligent system yourself.

The disadvantages:

  • The signal of your mobile network depends on trigger on the alarm notification.
  • They can get expensive depending on the items you choose.

Anti-theft system maintenance

Regular maintenance service should highlight and reduce defects, give you peace of mind, and give you more compensation if something goes wrong. If you receive a maintenance contract for the alarm, an installer, who comes to your home, will check the alarm once a year (twice a year if you have a police monitoring contract) or remotely.
Having your alarm system in proper working order can help you solve any problems with false alarms. But if you do not have a maintenance contract with the company that installed the anti-theft device, then it is necessary to contact an expert and qualified company in this field.
