Burglar alarm systems have been around for decades and are the most common electronic security measure in our homes. They offer a visual deterrent but also keep criminals guessing weather the alarm is monitored or not. There are 2 categories of burglar alarm systems, one is monitored and the other is bells only. A monitored system will send a signal to a key holder or monitoring station upon a confirmed alarm.
Monitored alarms are great for piece of mind but they come with a yearly service and maintenance cost. Modern technology now means that you can monitor your alarm system yourself from a smartphone app, with real time notifications and alarms, this is good idea if your on a budget.
