Why choose Yale 6400 Premium Telecommunicating Alarm
When looking to choose a wireless alarm, the choices available in the market are vast and at times confusing. The price ranges vary at times from a few hundred pounds upwards to few thousand pounds, not to mention the different security terms and descriptions used to explain the alarm systems. To make matters worse, some installation companies won’t even mention the make and model of alarm system they are installing.
The basic purpose of a security system is to act as a visible deterrent to burglars. So, a house with one or two alarm bell box outside looks less attractive to the burglar as opposed to a house with no visible signs of security systems.
The second functional aspect to consider with an alarm system is, whether you can use this alarm when you go to bed. What it means is whether the alarm is zone controllable/ allows partitioning of alarm to operate it in stay and away modes. In simple terms, you can turn the alarm on in ‘stay’ mode, it allows you to go to bed, get up and go to the toilet without setting the alarm off, however if someone tries to break in, the alarm goes off. And when you set the alarm on in ‘away’ mode, the alarm is completely on, or all zones of the alarm are working.
Third aspect would be whether you want an alarm to be monitored. Now this is a service a lot of security companies charge monthly fees and involves lengthy contracts. The way this works is, if there is a burglary attempt and the alarm goes off, you will be alerted on your phone. Third party monitoring solutions involve a manned solution – alarm alerts the monitoring station and the monitoring station calls you to tell you the alarm is gone off. Now, the new generation wireless alarm eliminates the need to have third party monitoring and paying monthly fees. The wireless alarm connected to your landline phone can call you directly if there is a break in. No monthly fees or a contract, all it costs you is a landline call to mobile phone.
