Frequently Asked Questions


Yes, your alarm allows for full setting, part setting and night setting. Typically, on a night setting, you are free to move around in some areas of your home such as upstairs whilst the ground floor is alarmed.

Yes, we can offer Pet friendly sensors for a limited number and size of house pets.

A monitored alarm connects to an Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC) which is a remote central station manned 24 hours a day 365 days a year, via your telephone line. For instance if the alarm system detects an intrusion, it immediately sends an intruder signal to the ARC via the phone line or mobile GSM. Within seconds the ARC is able to verify the alarm signal and decide on an appropriate course of action to alert you or one or more of your nominated key holders and if necessary alert the Police via an agreed communication channel.

Alarm Monitoring of your premises requires an active phone line. The risk of vulnerable phone line can be overcome by adopting a dual signalling method such as Redcare or Emizon, which uses the GPRS network if the landline fails.

Your wireless alarm will utilize a dedicated 868 MHz narrow band radio channel which is exclusive for the security industry and as such is unlikely to receive interference from your wireless internet connection. However, we always fit an ASDL filter when the alarm is monitored or has a speech dialler fitted.
