Overview of the type of Alarm Systems installed by Boxer.
1. Residential Alarm Systems
Burglar & Intruder Alarms
Burglars dislike noise – it attracts attention. A barking dog is the best deterrent in preventing burglaries. However, a dog cannot always be depended upon. The most reliable safe-guard to protect your home and possessions is a reliable Intruder Alarm.
Many types of Burglar Alarms can be obtained for residential use. It is advisable, however, that basic hardware security measures be followed first. If additional security is desired, the following recommendations could be helpful.
An audible alarm is recommended over silent alarms for residential use in order to first protect persons and secondly, property.
Don’t depend entirely upon an alarm system to protect you – be sure to use proper locking devices.
Any alarm system should;
- Have a battery-powered fail-safe back-up
- Have Fire-sensing capability
- Have read-out ability to check the working of system
- Have a sounding device
- Be Installed by a NSAI Approved Contractor (Why it’s important)
- Be set up by a PSA Member (View our PSA Licence here)
