Frequently Asked Questions About Alarms and Monitoring

Do I really need an alarm?

Ask yourself the following questions. If you answer yes to one or more of these, that is a strong indication that you need a monitored alarm...

Do you or any of your family members feel vulnerable or scared in your home?

Do you have goods of high value that would be disastrous if lost or damaged?

Do you ever feel like your property is at risk?

Would you like to know that if something does happen someone will react appropriately?

Are you or your family members ever home alone?

Are you unwell and sometimes immobilised in anyway?

A monitored alarm gives you piece of mind that if the worst happens that you will get the correct response from the Police, Fire Brigade or Ambulance services in an Emergency.

P.S. All our monitored alarms include Panic Buttons which means if in trouble you can alert the authorities with one push of a button on your alarm or key fob.

Do I really need my alarm monitored? My neighbours are nice and said they will look after my place.

Well that may be true but you can’t ask your neighbours to be around 24/7 to look after your house and how willing are they at dealing with an intruder? When a monitored alarm set off a trained professional guard will be sent to deal with the situation.

I have a medical condition that means I need help quickly at times. Can a monitored alarm system help with that?

If you push your panic button on your alarm panel or key fob an Ambulance will be despatched immediately to assist you.

I am worried about my families safety in case of a fire. Can my system help in that area?

Of course we recommend that all monitored systems be fitted with smoke and heat detectors. If these are triggered the fire brigade will be despatched to you immediately. Because it is the fire protection part of the system it knows to send the fire department. It is proven that in 80% of fire deaths the victim didn’t wake up. As your sense of smell shuts down in many cases help will be on its way before you are aware of the fire.

What happens if I am attacked or challenged entering or outside my home?

You can activate the alarm from anywhere on your property using your key fob and help will be sent to you straight away even if your alarm hasn’t been set off by the intruder.

What if I hide because I hear noises?

From your key fob you can send a signal to alert the monitoring station that you need help! You can keep your key fob by your bed at night or somewhere safe you can access it quickly in an emergency.
