A burglar alarm system is designed to provide you with extra protection and peace of mind by discouraging unwanted intruders from entering the property. The mere presence of a home alarm or business alarm system acts as a visual deterrent that’s proven to make intruders and burglars think twice about breaking into your property.

At Highlander Security Systems, we have years of experience in installing professional security systems for both residential and commercial properties. With that in mind, we thought we’d share our knowledge to help you towards making the right decision for your home or business.

In this blog we will explain some of the benefits of an intruder alarm system.


Protects your home or business from burglary

The most common reason why a person has an intruder alarm system installed in their home is for protection of their family and possessions. The majority of burglars are opportunistic, most of the time they’ll pick the house without an alarm or a DIY alarm, over the house with a professionally installed burglar alarm system.

Having a home alarm system is one of the best deterrents available to prevent burglaries, the mere presence of an alarm system is enough in most cases to protect the home and its occupants from break-ins.

The average home has a lot of valuable items inside including laptops, televisions, mobile phones, games consoles, jewellery, etc.

Commercial premises can also hold lots of valuable stock including computers, laptops and staff members belongings. A business premise could also contain sensitive customer information that needs to be secure and protected.

Highlander Security Systems can help you design the most secure alarm system regardless of your property. We install tailor-made security systems for all types of customers, from commercial properties to residential properties.   

To protect your home or business, we recommend having an intruder alarm system installed by a professional. Highlander Security Systems will take the time to complete a full security survey of your property, discussing what your requirements are, before designing a tailored security system that will ensure your property is completely protected.

Having a professional alarm company install your system also means your system can be monitored by an alarm receiving centre (ARC), staffed by security personnel who will contact you, a nominated key holder or the police in the event of a break-in. This will give you complete peace of mind that your property is protected 24/7, 365 days a year.

Control your home or business security system remotely

Burglar alarms are much more advanced than they used to be, using just one app, you can control and monitor your burglar alarm system via your smart phone from anywhere in the world, as long as you have an internet connection.

The smart phone app offers complete control and peace of mind from the palm of your hand. With the app you can set and unset specific rooms or zones, receive notifications if your alarm has been triggered, activate the alarm and much more.

There are many benefits to using the app for home owners, they can partially set the alarm at night from the comfort of their bed, or if a customer thinks they may have forgotten to set their alarm before leaving the house they can set the alarm from wherever they are using the app.

Business owners can benefit from using the app by partially setting the alarm to keep the front of the shop or property secure. This can ensure that employees are safe from harm while working odd hours or late shifts when chances of thieves breaking in are higher.

Pairing a CCTV system with a burglar alarm system is a great way of keeping your property secure. This means when a client receives a notification on their phone to say the alarm has been triggered, they can instantly check what zone has been set off and view live footage from that part of the property on their phone.

Value for money

Most security systems like burglar alarms or CCTV surveillance camera systems are much more affordable than a lot of people think.

Due to the rise in technology, it is also now cheaper to purchase a wireless alarm than before. Modern wireless alarm systems are a lot more affordable and much easier to install; therefore, installation time is much reduced, which in turn means the cost is reduced overall.

Home security systems are considered a valuable addition to your home by insurance companies. 

You can also save money on your home insurance, the more protected your house is, the less likely your house will be targeted. Many home insurance companies offer you discounts on your homeowner insurance policy when you have a home security system.
