Growth in Demand for Essex Intruder Alarms

The county of Essex covers 1,404 square miles to the north-east of London, and includes large and thriving towns such as Basildon, Chelmsford, Colchester, Harlow and Southend, as well as rural areas such as Saffron Walden, Thaxted and Dunmow. With such a broad constituency, crime stats are only able to provide a broad brushstroke image of daily life in the region. There are two categories of crime, however, which are causing Essex police particular headaches; they are ‘anti-social behaviour’ and ‘violent crime’ which have now been growing steadily across the region over the past few years. As providers of Essex security systems, the 1st Choice team has noticed that demand for intruder alarm installations has been growing in line with this disturbing trend.

Why Install Essex Intruder Alarms?

Whilst an intruder alarm cannot provide total security, it is an excellent first-step and many of our clients have been asking us which intruder alarm installations provide the best protection. The 1st Choice team prefer to answer that question only after a careful inspection of the premises, but as a general rule, we determine the choice of intruder alarm according to the level of risk level identified:

Low-Level Risk – If you are seeking to protect your home, and you live in a residential area that experiences a low level of crime, vandalism, or trespass, we would advise that a ‘bells only’ alarm system would suffice. In most cases the high-pitched alarm is enough to deter intruders.

Mid-Level Risk – If you live in an area where the crime-level is growing, or you have business premises you want to protect when you’re not there, a ‘monitored alarm system’ linked to key holders, or an Alarm Receiving Centre, will ensure ongoing security in your absence.

High-Level Risk – If your property has been targeted in the past, or if you keep goods on-site that might be attractive to criminals, you should certainly think of installing an Essex alarm system that is guaranteed a response from the emergency services via an Alarm Receiving Centre.
