Smart home-security systems
The alarm will sound and you’ll be contacted via an app on your smartphone or tablet. You’ll be able to view images of your home so you can monitor what’s happening inside your home from where you are. The alarm system can be armed and disarmed from your smartphone or tablet and you can part-arm so that you can set the alarm for some zones of your home and not for others, ideal for when you’re in but want the extra security an alarm gives you.
You should be able to install it yourself as they’re usually wireless systems, although you may want to get it professionally installed. This type of burglar alarm can cost £200 for a basic system and you’ll probably need to buy extra detectors, however, it can usually link up with any existing CCTV cameras you may have, and you won’t have to pay a monthly/annual fee.
