This is one of the most popular Yale alarm ever. It is easy to use and very budget friendly. The pet-friendly sensors are only suitable for small pets like a dog that stays on ground. If you have cats, we wouldn’t recommend this alarm. Have a look at our Visonic range.

We have this Risco Agility alarm recommended and fitted by FHA Security in 2019. It has been excellent for us, with the app and phone calls. When our landline went digital, FHA added a new simcard unit so we can continue to get the calls. We really like the hidden control panel and reliable app we have with this system. Great system.

Fully wired 2 camera systems are what we recommend as a minimum. The Hikvision camera range is reliable, affordable and there is real ongoing cost using it. The app is realible and all recordings are saved in your local harddisc as well.

It depends if you are choosing the right system for your requirement. Because sometimes, people end up getting a security system that doesn't offer what the user needs to protect their properties. Home Security Systems are primarily designed to offer protection to homeowners and allow you to keep intruders off your premises.

You can always customise these systems based on your requirement. If you are looking for an effective home security system, we can indeed help you with your requirements.

Security systems are primarily designed to protect homes from intruders by alerting the user if there is an unauthorized entry. The remote access feature of these systems allows users to monitor, manage and control home security anytime. It offers protection and gives homeowners peace of mind. Security systems are available in different categories with their own set of features protecting in different ways. For more details, read through our blog "burglar alarms vs CCTV vs doorbells" and understand each of these systems and their applications in detail.

DIY systems are easily available both online and offline. However, it depends on the brand you want to buy. For instance, if you're going to buy a Yale alarm, you can easily get it both online and offline. But if you are looking for insurance approved or British grade alarms, you will have to consult with a professional security installer that will configure, supply, and maintain the system.

The most common home security system is a burglar alarm that is commonly used against theft. Burglar alarms are designed to trigger an alarm and notify stakeholders in the event of a break-in using several methods. Strategically located sensors of different capabilities notify alarm control panel when their perimeter is breached. The alarm control panel, in turn, actions a series of pre-configured actions to deter burglars and inform stakeholders.

Home Security Systems costs vary depending on whether you have a product you own or lease from a security provider. With FHA Alarms, since you own the product from day 1, there are no ongoing costs for your systems unless there are any ongoing services like extended warranty or subscription charges required as part of the system. On a leased alarm, monthly payments can be anywhere between 30 to 60 per month, so the average cost over ten years will be 3600-7200.00, which comes out to be expensive.
