Where to start with professional security alarm systems?

There is a large variety of solutions available on the Security Alarm market. At HomeTechWare, our aim is to simply the process of selecting, designing and installing the correct solution for you. A professionally installed Security Alarm with the right solution will generally provide the best results and here we will provide some insight into the various types of solution available that could cover your requirements.

Security Alarm Systems professionally installed by HomeTechWare include:

Basic Alarms  [combined bells only and telephone]

Bells-only systems will trigger an alarm and notify you within the property only typically via an internal sounder and external siren. They can only be controlled from within the property as they are offline solutions. These systems may have a professional maintenance agreement attached to them.

Telephone Only Systems will trigger an alarm and notify you typically within the property via an internal sounder and external siren. In addition, they will dial and even send you a text message via your telephone line to a given number e.g. your mobile phone. You may even control such systems with basic command remotely. In terms of technology, remote communication would typically either be via landline or a GSM (mobile) connection. These systems may have a professional maintenance agreement attached to them as well as signalling to a third party such as an Alarm Receiving Centre and the police.

Smart Alarms

These systems will trigger an alarm and notify you typically within the property via an internal sounder and external siren. This type of system communicates remotely via the internet and generally to Apps or to third parties such as Alarm Receiving Centres and the police, so you would be notified via these also in the event of the alarm triggering. These types of system allow the greatest control over the system from anywhere and can be much more convenient and user-friendly to use than other types of Security Alarm.

Home Automation Security Alarms

A new and emerging type of solution involves combining Security Alarms with Home Automation. This means, for example, when the alarm is triggered, curtains or blinds might automatically open and all the lights will turn on to expose potential intruders inside the property. This and many more scenarios can be created through such systems while still maintaining the features of any other Security System.
