Intruder Alarms Bingley
If you are searching for intruder alarms in Bingley then you’ve reached the right page. In the near four decades that we’ve been trading then there is one recurring outcome we can recognise – when the economy is bad and people are losing jobs then crime increases!
We have been providing security alarms for Bingley businesses and homeowners for nearly four decades and we’ve seen many inventions appear and disappear. The latest being purely Wi-Fi, plug-and-play burglar alarms. Over the years the deciding factor of whether an innovation in crime detection endures or not is determined by the criminal fraternity.
An alarm that you can unpack, plug in, set up on an app and then ask Alexa or Siri to set seems marvellous – our guess is that the burglars think it is too! If a bell box isn’t permanently fixed, then smashing it or tossing it in into a barrel of water is straightforward … or just pinching it could be a possibility! If there is no outside siren and strobe light, fitted high externally then is there any deterrent?
Many studies and criminal research finds that intruders are put off by a professional security alarm and security cameras. Criminals want the easier option. If they only discover you have an alarm system once they’ve broken into your building then the damage is already done.
Having a connected app with your security system is good practice, even if supplementary. It is imperative that the intruder alarm performs as a hard wearing security system regardless of an app. The ability to remotely activate and deactivate your intruder alarm, monitor it’s status and get notifications is a real boon. However, we all understand that mobiles and cellular networks are a robust network most of the time but if you were sent a text by your alarm at midnight on old year’s night how rapidly would that reach your phone? Supplemental apps are a great add on to a security system but the system itself must first provide a deterrent and then notify burglars and people nearby, should a break-in happen, irrespective of power-cuts or no internet.

We said earlier that whether new security innovations last is determined by burglars – this is so, however there are other groups who affect this decision. Let’s just say this – before you order your Wi-Fi connected alarm, ask your underwriter what they think! … Just saying Alexa!
