After all, the mere presence of a home alarm system dramatically decreases the probability of a break-in.

Most security systems focus on the vulnerable locations within a home, such as doors and windows, through the use of sensors positioned throughout the house. They are able to alert you immediately to the presence of an intruder. For even greater security, we at Dalec suggest the addition of similar deterrents outside of their home, in order to keep potential thieves from accessing the house in the first place.
Typically, there are two main types of alarm systems from which to choose: monitored and unmonitored. The choice is generally based on the homeowner’s own preferences.
The bare-bones approach is an unmonitored security system, which simply features audible alarms and perhaps some flashing lights. The idea behind this system is to frighten the burglar away, while also attracting the attention of neighbours or passers-by, who may then alert the police. However, with the growing presence of noisy alarms, a major insurance company’s survey revealed that 33% of Britons ignore ringing burglar alarms, generally assuming that someone else will respond.
With a monitored system, you have audible alarms that immediately alert the monitoring company if there is an intrusion. An attempt will then be made by the monitoring company to contact you or your named contacts. If they are unable to reach you, they will immediately contact emergency services on your behalf. This way there is no delay, leading to greater security of you, your property and your possessions.
When researching the various options of the alarm systems has available, it makes sense to include the installation of smoke and fire detectors. This potentially life-saving step can give you early warning that can stop a small incident from becoming a tragic disaster.
As a general rule, the cost of alarm monitoring is dependent upon both the options you’ve chosen and the terms of the contract with the provider. At Dalec, we can provide you with an alarm system that suits your particular needs and concerns. We can even include specialty items, such as panic buttons that can be activated in the event of an emergency. Other options include closed circuit cameras that allow you to monitor and record inside and outside your home.
To fully protect your investment in your home, it only makes sense to install a security system for your home. No matter what components you choose, you can feel confident that your home is adequately protected. All that you need to remember to do is to set the system when you go out.
