Hello!

I'm after a bit of advice about home alarms.. planning to get one at home.

ADT are coming out at £449 + a monthly payment of approx £20 or £25!

Has anyone ever purchased their own alarm and set it up? was it hard to setup? got the system to text message you if broken into?

the keyfob ones look good. Will need 3 PIRS .. but just after some advice from others that might have set it up... and which one they went for.

Any info would be great! cheers

Trouble is, if you hear a home alarm going off in your neighbourhood, then you just want it to shut the **** up! no one pays any attention to them

I find them more useful for when I'm in the house sleeping more than when I'm out or away.

It's more comforting to know that the alarm will go off and wake me up (as well as hopefully making them run off) as they enter the house instead of when they get upstairs!

i work for an alarm company, where do you live? xx

Got an alarm when someone tried to break-in.........Got all the advise needed....... Go for wired alarms, not wireless!! ~ and certainly not the DIY ones. I went for ADT ~ They did the job well !! No wires sticking out , and never had a false alarm plus got a PANIC Button done for free. £449 is a good price, they charged me well over £700 !!!

My house is alarmed and so is the Garage (Main reason I wanted the alarm ) - you also should think about Alarm Monitoring ie when the Alarm goes off it trips a call via Redcare or you own telephone line to a monitoring site who will then contact the Police etc. You can also get reductions in your House Insurance for a professionally installed alarm BUT some insist it has to be monitored
