Once the Burglar alarm system is installed, it is important that you stay updated with any alerts made by the alarm. By law, burglar alarms can only activate the outdoor siren for 15 minutes, then they are muted. As soon as any of the sensors are triggered you need to know immediately. There are 4 methods available to keep you alerted.
Option 1 – Mobile Application
There is an application available to be installed on your smartphone or tablet. If the alarm is triggered, a siren will sound on the mobile device. It can tell you which zones have been triggered within the property. The application also allows you to activate and deactivate the alarm system from anywhere in the world.
Option 2 – Dial a Phone
The alarm system can have a sim card installed or be connected to a landline. If the alarm is triggered, the burglar alarm can be set to call a predefined phone number. An automated message will tell the owner the alarm has been triggered. Having a sim card installed in the burglar alarm ensures that a message can always be sent to the owner. There have been cases where criminals cut the phone line before they enter the property, so the alarm cannot communicate with a third party. The disadvantage of the alarm calling only one predefined number, is if that person doesn’t have any signal, they will not get the message.
Option 3 – Call Centre
Again, the alarm system can have a sim card and be connected to the landline, but if there is an alert, a message will be sent to a remote call centre. The call centre will have a list of up to 5 family members, friends, neighbours and key holders. If the call centre cannot get hold of the first on the list, they will keep on ringing through the list until they speak to somebody. The key holder will be informed of the alarm status so they can take action immediately.
Option 4 – Police Call Out
Alarms can be fitted that will alert the police immediately if triggered. The police will attend the property straight away and deal with the break in. This is the most thorough service an alarm system can provide. Having this kind of piece of mind is invaluable, especially if you are away from the property for long periods of time.
Option 5 – Panic Button
We can install panic buttons around the property which can call the call centre or straight through to the police.
The sim cards we provide have a roaming functionality. This means if the signal drops on one network, they will jump onto the next network that has the best signal. The sim cards can connect up to 4 different networks to provide the best coverage.
