    How much does a burglar alarm cost to fit?

    Is it better to get someone to come in from yellow pages etc
    Or DIY job?

    How much did you pay?

    Thanks

    just use mice trap,its cheap

    depends........do you want it to go through to someone who will give you a call if it goes off and call the police or do you simply want it to ring and hope your neighbours get fed up enough that they call you. You can have ones which text a mobile when it goes off. Plus others that tell you a specific room/door has activated. so many options. do you know this yet or not?

    Depends on complexity and type of alarm.

    £300 with call out system to a mobile.

    ...then theres the signalling path it goes through to an Alarm Receiving Centre on. a basic telephone digi will be the cheapest but useless if someone cuts the line accidently or on purpose. Dual come if you want a back up path as well. BT do redcare, which is expensive and not always the best. You can have IP signalling plus a mobile signal (GSM / GPRS back up) which is always connected and on so alerts you instantly if anyone attempts to gain access. all have a cost difference.

    ...if you want police/fire response on it you will have to get an approved person to connect it up. Standards an all.... :-) hope this helps.

    Thanks for the help, looking for something standard, not to crazy.
    one which makes a noise loud enough to make some people look out there window lol

    Get a wireless one and fit it yourself, job done.

    i used our local crime prevention unit, they were half the price other's in yellow pages were asking, they are really helpful, give them a ring
