An alarm system is a big deterrent to burglars, one that is linked to a security company that provides monitoring even more so. You do need to ensure you have the right sort of system, or false alarms will be an inevitable, and annoying, part of your life. Although stand-alone systems are available, security should be thought of – and installed – in layers. A suitable alarm should come after you have the basics in place: burglar bars, a secure perimeter fence, solid external doors and strong door and window locks. Then an alarm is a great part of a homeowner’s security.
