Jerec: I really want an alarm for my house but I just have no idea on what ones are best, nor the prices I should be paying. Can anyone suggest some good brands/setups please? ToJerec It depends on how much work you are prepared to do yourself. A mains powered control box with back up battery, I think most people would feel safe with. There are Yale & other kits, plenty of competitive prices, where most of the devices are wireless. No wires to fix, but wired are more time consuming and difficult to hide unless you are prepared to drill etc & hide under floorboards etc. Try a few Alarm fitters for quotes? Screwfix have a Yale wireless expandable kit for about £ 220. Have a look at that for starters to give you ideas. Look up Honeywell for alarms. I've had one fitted for years with no problems. A decent handyman could do most of the time consuming work themselves to fit a " professional" alarm... Hence they would find a wireless one a doddle to fit. Best wishes..
We have this one but it came with 2 of the window\door contact things rather than one (this pack only has one). We needed 1 for the front door and one for the back door. Its decent enough although we did pay less than this and a downside is that you need to change the batteries on the main alarm every 18 to 24 months, so you have to go up a ladder if you have it at the top of your house , open the alarm and replace the batteries , it will also activate the alarm sound once you open it to change the batteries
I'm waiting on the Yale Sync alarm coming back down in price. Sold my house and my buyers wanted the alarm, so I need to buy another. Note that the Yale Sync range is their next generation alarm - and is not compatible with this one or its accessories.
