It’s a proven fact that almost all residential burglaries are committed by opportunists’ criminals between the hours all 8AM and 5PM.

There are two Halifax Security Services that offer real value for money to residential properties. A monitored intruder alarm system and or a monitored CCTV system. Both Halifax Security Services offer a great deterrent against opportunist criminal attack and, increase the risk of the criminal of being caught, so they move on to find an easier target.
What is a monitored Intruder alarm?
A monitored intruder alarm or monitored burglar alarm, is simply an alarm system that when triggered, informs someone your alarm has been activated. But what’s the point in your alarm monitoring company calling you, your not at home and thats why your alarm system is set!.
Is Monitored CCTV worth the cost?
CCTV monitoring is where a third-party company has a connection to your CCTV system during pre-agreed hours. in the event of a person or vehicle being seen the monitoring company will inform you. Almost all modern CCTV systems have what is known as analytic detection methods, this means your CCTV cameras can detect motion and send an alarm of the motion to the monitoring station.
So, it seems we’ve highlighted a problem.
The problem is if you have a monitored burglar alarm or monitored CCTV, you really need a security company in Halifax to provide a response service to activations. Otherwise, there’s no real point in having a monitored security system. The key holding and alarm response provider must ideally be located within the local area, as the response time to your property is the vital part of the service, and let be fare every second counts.
Monitored Alarm or CCTV system?
A monitored alarm system will work extremely well at protecting your property, however, please remember that’s an alarm system is reactive. By this we simply mean in order for your alarm to activate, it means someone has already gained entry to your property. Whereas monitored CCTV is proactive and will detect a person of interest before they gain entry to your property, or any damage has been done.
What the guru recommends!
A professionally installed alarm system in our opinion is the best option but can cost thousands of pounds and in today’s climate of austerity, maybe this cost is unrealistic too many households. The cost of an alarm system should never be a deciding factor especially when there are DIY alarm systems on the market, that are extremely affordable and do the same job as a professionally installed system. In some cases, they do a better job. DIY burglar alarm system can still be monitored by a security company and key holding and alarm response services can be provided.
