Home security is an important investment for homeowners of all sizes. A reliable house alarm system can help to deter burglars, protect your family and property, and give you peace of mind, but which house alarm system is more reliable? In this article, we will be discussing the various types of house alarm systems to deter burglars, and we will also explain how Lynx Fire and Security can help provide home security for your property.

Types of House Alarm Systems

There are two main types of house alarm systems: wired and wireless. Both systems are just as reliable, however a wired system has the benefit of reduced ongoing costs, while a wireless alarm system is easier to install with the benefits of a bespoke design to suit any property.

Features of a Reliable House Alarm System

A reliable house alarm system should ideally have the following features:

  • A central control panel that monitors all the sensors in your home
  • Adequate coverage including some or both of the following:
  • Door and window sensors that will trigger the alarm if they are opened
  • Motion sensors that will trigger the alarm if they detect movement
  • A siren that will sound if the alarm is triggered
  • Visual deterrents (external siren and decoy)
  • A way to notify you if the alarm is triggered, such as a dialler (phone call or text message) or app facility.

CCTV Cameras

In addition to a basic house alarm system, you may also want to consider adding CCTV cameras to your home security. CCTV cameras can help you with monitoring your home for activity, even when you are not there. They can also send notifications to you if they detect movement.

Lynx Fire and Security CCTV Cameras

Lynx Fire and Security offers a wide range of CCTV cameras that can help you to keep your home safe and secure. Our cameras are reliable, easy to use, and affordable. We also offer a range of CCTV monitoring services that can help you to keep an eye on your home even when you are not there.

Our CCTV systems can send notifications to users when they detect movement. This means that you can be alerted to any activity at your home, even when you are not there. This can help with deterring burglars and protect your property. More complex systems can also identify the cause of movement and be programmed to only notify you of certain activity (e.g. human or vehicular) – this can help to reduce false alarms.

Additionally, Lynx Fire and Security offers services and maintenance which you can book into ahead of time to give you the peace of mind of not having to remember about your CCTV burglar alarm system, but instead let us take care of maintaining your house alarm system to ensure they are running 24 hours a day .
