Alarm Systems

https://www.safeandsecure247.cWe firmly believe that everyone should feel safe and secure in their own home and/or place of work.  A decent alarm system, once you have all of your basic security in place, offers an excellent additional level of security that acts both an extremely good deterrent to potential intruders whilst providing a really good level of reassurance that your property is safe and secure in your absence or sleeping hours, not just in terms of intrusion prevention but also for your safety for example smoke, heat, flood, gas detection and early warning.

During Winter lockdown 2020/21 we have been looking at and testing QOLSYS, Quality of life systems, the next generation of panel incorporating our tried and trusted alarm systems and so much more

An alarm system is an important purchase and we know that our customers want a state of the art system but that is very simple to operate and totally reliable so that it doesn’t bother you with false alarms or let you down when you need it most.  We will only recommend systems and detectors that we have fully tested ourselves and are totally confident they wont let you down.

We have a large number of wireless alarm systems in operation across Mid-Wales and Shropshire in both commercial and domestic premises.  Some customers chose to have them professionally monitored whilst others are happy to manage notifications direct to themselves, family or friends.  There are distinct advantages to professional monitoring which we always explain but the choice will always be yours.

The systems we recommend are cost-effective but top of the range systems packed with research and technology and security features to ensure they maximise your security, with minimal false alarms or problems whilst being really simple to operate.

You will own your system outright from day 1, we don’t believe in tying our customers into complex installation and service contracts, we offer a very straightforward and transparent process with no hidden extras. We recommend annual system check and servicing but are happy to undertake this whenever you wish it to be undertaken.

All of our alarm systems are bespoke systems designed to maximise your security whilst at the same time not being overly intrusive to your lifestyle or business. So we look at the security strengths and weaknesses of the premises foremost but we also consider how the system will work best to suit your lifestyle or business.

We recommend connection to the internet which although not essential does enable you to have full oversight and control via a convenient app 24/7 from anywhere in the world. (subject to network connection) This also enables us in the rare event of an issue occurring or you wanting to make changes to the system to undertake remote maintenance.  This saves you a call out charge and means most issues can be attended to very promptly.

Visonic Alarm App

A Couple of Examples that Highlight Flexible Design

A domestic customer that lives alone and suffers insomnia wanted the house fully alarmed at night time but also wanted to be able to come downstairs and move about freely in the hall, lounge and kitchen without having to unset the alarm.

A few customers that wish to be able to keep outbuildings or sheds alarmed whilst they are in the house.

A separate outdoor system covering parking areas and a gate to provide the occupant early warning of trespassers on the premises.

A safe that is alarmed 24/7 even when the premises are open.

24/7 panic alarm system for a customer that could be the subject of threats of harm


There are a wide range of different types detectors for us to choose in consultation with you that help to ensure the very best security whilst impacting minimally with your lifestyle or the running of your business etc.

There are different types of PIR (Passive Infra Red Detector) etc some of which work over greater distance or outdoors or in harsh environments, some of which incorporate additional detection tech such as microwave to reduce the risk of false alarm even more than with a straightforward PIR. There are alaso internal and external camera PIRs that send a video busrt of whatever causes them to activate, helping to assess whether there may or may not be persons illigally within that zone etc.

Outdoor Areas

It is now possible to alarm outdoor areas with different types of PIR and magnetic gate/door detectors, we have tested these over an extended period time and they have proved to be extremely dependable and reliable, they can either trigger a full alarm or a number of choices of direct notification that you may have trespassers and/or potential intruders in any given area outside your premises.

Such detectors are also excellent for areas such as parking areas where you may have vehicles of other high value equipment and would want early notification of possible intruders in that area or just walking around your building out of hours.

Professional Monitoring


You might feel perfectly happy to monitor your own system which is easy enough to do using the app notifications but we are able to offer 24/7 professional monitoring (Currently offered free for 12 months with no obligation to continue beyond 12 months with all new suitably connected installations). HOWEVER, what happens if you are in an important meeting or on holiday or in an area with no signal? What happens if you set off the panic alarm and its only notifying you? This is where monitoring comes into it’s own, you will still receive notification subject to you having 4g/wifi etc, however the monitoring people will also receive and handle the activation on your behalf, checking that all is well at the premises and calling emergency services as necessary etc.

Not Just Intruder Alarms

There are a number of safety type detectors that can be incorporated too.

Smoke Detectectors or Smoke/Heat Detectors – The clear advantage in having these monitored by your alarm system is the minute they activate a detection, the system is notifying whoever it is set up to notify in order that emergency services can be notified at the first opportunity instead of having to wait for a neighbour or passer by to notice a problem if you are not at your premises.

Carbon Monoxide Detectors – As above rather than just sound an audible alarm at the premises if these are activated, the system would be notifying whoever it is set up to notify as soon as they activate.

Tempearture – The latest PIR detectors have temperature and ambient light sensors in them. The system can be enabled to provide notification of an excessively high or low temperature. A couple of uses for this are to monitor elderly or infirm friends or relatives who may not always have the heating as their firt thought so that from any remote location you will have reassurance their house (room by room) is warm and comfotable and whether lights are on or off. Also should you be lucky enough to leave our shores in winter or your commercial building is closed during holidays you will have total reasurance of receiveing timely notification if something isnt right with the heating to preven freeze ups or wasted fuel bills.

Flood – Self explanatory, early notification of water where it shouldnt be.

Movement – as well as acting as an intruder sytem when PIR detectors detect movement, it can work the opposite way when monitoring an elderly infirm person who doesnt move though an area or room in a set time
