Intruder Alarms

Intruder alarms are a basic need for anyone wanting to protect their property Pulse can provide and install domestic and commercial systems with phone alerts, including systems with pet immune sensors.

Reasons to have an alarm

 

1

Continuous protection:

 

Home owners often forget that they can’t watch their homes around the clock. When you leave to go to work, or store, in 15 minutes, anything can happen! A home alarm system watches your home all the time.

2

Peace of mind

 

A home security system can provide you and your family with the feeling of security whether you are home or not. While you’re home you can feel safe knowing your home is safeguarded and while you’re away you can be assured that your alarm system will let you know if there is any problem at your home.

3

Lower Insurance:

If you own a home you may receive a discount from your home owner’s insurance company. Homes that have an alarm system are looked at as a lower liability than those without by your insurance company. Check with your company to see if they offer a discount..

 

Household Burglary in the UK – Facts and Figures

How common is burglary?

 

• Every 37 seconds a home somewhere in Britain is burgled.

• Every year there are over 1 million burglaries and attempted burglaries.

• 20% of households experience more than one incident a year. 13% are burgled twice and 7% three or more times.

• Between 1981 and 1993 burglaries increased by 137%. There was a decline through the rest of the 1990’s but which has now leveled off and 2002 showed a 5% annual increase. Aggravated burglary (where the occupiers are home at the time) rose 14% in 2002.

Which houses are targeted?

• Households are more than twice as likely to be burgled if they’ve been burgled in the previous four years.

• Most burglaries are not pre-planned, they’re committed by opportunist thieves who spot an open door, window, or valuables on display.
