1st Choice Installs Burglar Alarms in Hertfordshire

Police forces across England and Wales are now meeting their targets for attending every domestic burglary that gets reported. This is great news, but what the team at 1st Choice Security Systems would ideally like to see is a big drop in the reported incidents! That’s why we’re committed to installing high-quality, effective burglar alarms Hertfordshire.

The 1st Choice Security Systems team has been installing burglar alarms across Hertfordshire for nearly two decades now. We work with schools, homeowners, retail, and the commercial sector to make life more difficult for intruders. All our clients are offered a free security audit, carried out by 1st Choice engineers. It helps us to offer effective advice and guidance regarding their security installations.


Which is the Right Burglar Alarm?

When it comes to selecting burglar alarms Hertfordshire clients are often uncertain as to which system to choose. 1st Choice engineers are often asked to help, and we offer the following guidance:

  • Bells-Only Alarm. This is the cheapest and most basic intruder alarm on offer. If an intruder is detected internal and external bells will ring. Normally the external bell will stop ringing after a set period, whilst the internal bells will continue until turned off. The system’s effectiveness depends on vigilant, socially responsible neighbours.
  • Monitored Intruder Alarm. The alarm is monitored by a 3rd party company who will contact you, a named contact, or the police if the alarm goes off. This offers the peace of mind that there will always be a response. The police will respond only if the system has been professionally installed and has a Unique Reference Number.
  • Wireless Intruder Alarm System. In place of cables, the wireless alarm system uses batteries that need to be replaced each year. They’re fairly simple to install, and work with heat and motion sensors to pick up the presence of an intruder. They can be controlled via an app on your phone, so if there’s a problem you know straight.

Choosing Burglar Alarm Hertfordshire Installers

When choosing a burglar alarm installer, it’s important to select an established company that has security accreditations. By doing so, you’ll have peace of mind that your property is safeguarded, and your family is secure. Established and accredited alarm installers have the training and experience to optimise your system, ensuring the best protection possible. With their services, you can rest assured that your home’s protection is in capable hands.

Here’s what to expect from professional installers:

  • The security company selected has NSI or SSAIB accreditation. This is a requirement for monitored systems.
  • A security engineer surveys of your property prior to installation, in order to identify vulnerabilities and recommend the best security system.
  • A free, no obligation quote is provided.
  • Installation is scheduled at your convenience. The system installed efficiently, thoroughly tested, and handover includes full instructions for use.
  • Maintenance is scheduled to guarantee your system continues to offer optimal protection. This is a requirement if you have a monitored alarm system.
  • You receive a certificate of compliance which you can present to your insurance company.

Having a professional security company like 1st Choice manage your intruder alarm installation means that there are no delays, or frustrating last-minute cancellations. There is a clear process which is professionally handled at every stage.

Home Security Systems in Hertfordshire

A burglar alarm is the most popular security device that we install, but it can’t do the job of securing your property on its own. We always advise our clients to think about using the burglar alarm alongside a CCTV installation, security gates and a door entry system. Used together to create a security system, these offer excellent protection to your family, students, or employees.
