Whether for work or pleasure, people spend a good deal of time away from their homes. And this can leave their properties empty and vulnerable for weeks at a time.
So what happens when your home alarm goes off whilst you’re not there?
The loud noise of an alarm should scare them off if they do attempt entry. However, some bold offenders might persist despite the noise. And, if your neighbours ignore the loud siren, the burglars get away with their crime.
Your mobile app sends you a text to alert you that one of your PIRs has been activated. But if you’re on holiday, you’ve got to:
This is often followed by the embarrassment of having dragged them out of bed for a false alarm. It can put a lot of pressure on even the strongest of friendships.
Wouldn’t you be able to enjoy your holiday more fully, if you knew that your home was being watched over 24/7, 365 days a year?
More homeowners than ever before are investing in monitored alarm systems to keep their home safe from theft and even fire. Especially as many insurers insist on home alarm maintenance and monitoring by an approved company.
And Falcon are delighted to offer some affordable options.
A monitored home alarm provides an instant response whenever the system is triggered.
Your alarm sends a signal to the ARC (Alarm Receiving Centre). It will register the alert and call your nominated keyholders. But what if you’re too busy to respond? Or if you don’t have additional keyholders because you don’t trust / know your neighbours? A great option is to use a professional and trusted security management company as a nominated keyholder. They get the call and will deal with the alert on your behalf.
Your alarm sends a signal to the ARC (Alarm Receiving Centre). Within seconds the ARC verifies the signal. If necessary, the professionals can call the Police to report a burglary in progress. The Police go to your property.
NB To get a Police Response, your home alarm system MUST have a valid Police reference number and be maintained and monitored by an approved installer.
It’s all done for you. 24/7. 365 days a year.
Having your home burgled whilst you are away is a horrible thing to think about. But how much worse if an intruder breaks in whilst you or a family member are at home?
Zonal options are available with many home alarm systems. But you might not think to set them whilst you are in the house. This makes your panic button your last line of defence.
Wouldn’t you feel safer knowing that a personal attack signal from your monitored alarm will receive an immediate Police response.
Most home insurers recommend monitored alarm systems as they offer a high level of theft and fire protection. Some insurance policies insist on maintenance and monitoring by an approved installer!
If you opt to have a security alarm installed at your property, you may find that your monthly insurance premiums go down.
After your alarm system is fitted, be sure to inform your insurer and find out whether you qualify for a discount.
