Installing a security system in your home gives you an extra layer of protection against any potential intruders. Whether you rent or own, you can enjoy the benefits that come with having a remote security system.

No need to worry if you left the building without activating your alarm, this can be done with the touch of a button whenever you want and wherever you are. Or you can turn it off if you have an unexpected visitor.

Instant notifications – Receive instant notifications on your desktop or mobile device if your intruder alarm or smoke alarm goes off when you’re out and about.

Emergency services – Security alarms can be linked to a remote monitoring station which will summon the relevant authority when necessary, providing round-the-clock protection, 365 days a year. As soon as the alarm has sounded, emergency services are on call to help.

Investment – Home security systems are an investment. The right systems can keep your valuables safe while saving you money in the process. Many insurance companies give discounts to members who have a home security monitoring system. This is a great way keep your outgoings to a minimum.

Peace of mind – A remote security system gives you peace of mind.  You know you’ll receive an instant alert and someone will be on hand in case of an emergency. Adding a security system to your home helps protect your family, yourself, and your property.
