Home Alarm Systems - Deterrent?
The main purpose of any alarm system has to be the deterrent factor. It’s well known that potential intruders will always take the path of least risk so will always choose a property without any apparent security over those that have so bell boxes/sirens, window stickers etc. play a key part but, if a would-be intruder has chosen your property for whatever reason, the next priority is making ingress as hard and as noisy as possible and this is where motion-detecting CCTV, window and door sensors and even sound detection (to detect breaking glass) are vital parts of the overall solution.
Home CCTV - Why Quality Matters
CCTV is both a deterrent and a potential source of vital evidence should the worst happen. On a deterrent level, while any CCTV camera can serve to make a casual thief think twice, professional burglars are well versed with cameras, camera types and their positioning and will have evaluated the risks before targeting your property.
Should the worse happen and a burglar makes an ingress into your property or onto your land, the police are much more likely to investigate and follow-up if good quality video footage is available and, by good quality, we mean the ability to recognise faces at range and the ability to capture vehicle registration plates, even in total darkness. At Cactus Home Security, we offer an extensive range of upgrades and options including; full colour, night vision, high definition 4k and more.
Drag the boundary between these two examples of CCTV images. Particularly note the “Give Way” sign just left of centre and how it becomes legible at the higher resolution and is virtually unreadable at lower resolutions. Similarly, the definition of the herringbone paving. This could make the difference between a number plate being read or a face identified beyond dispute.
Alarm Systems for Every Budget
A budget price will never mean a budget system, that’s our promise to you. We will survey, plan and install the ideal system for you.
Whether it be a simple home intruder alarm or a full perimeter solution with CCTV, we only use Grade 2, insurance approved equipment that conforms with SSAIB standards.
Remote monitoring & alerts
There are multiple options available as to how your system is monitored including Apps, notifications as standard plus, the options of remote monitoring by an Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC) for notifications to homeowners or security patrol companies. Talk to us about the options which will best suit your needs and budget.
