From 1998 to 2017
We have a full training background in Electrical Services for
Domestic, Commercial & Industrial applications. Our Intruder
Alarm background stems many systems.
Colt Alarms was formed back in 1998. Back then we
carried out electrical contract work, as well as fire alarm
and intruder alarm installation work.
We discovered then, when companies try to cover a
range of services, like Alarms, CCTV, Access Control
Electrical contract work, Intercom Systems, things start to
suffer. ( namely the customer )
Because of this we decided to concentrate solely on Intruder
Alarm Systems. This meant we could provide an excellent
service for our customers, and cater for all aspects of their
intruder alarm needs.
Colt Alarms From The Beginning
CHANGING WITH THE TIMES
Our Experience Compared - To Others
Many premises throughout Ireland are under graded or
over graded. The grading of security systems is important
and reflects the security level a premises requires for
In certain cases, depending on your insurance cover which
can stipulate the grade of alarm system that must be installed,
will dictate the type of designed protection needed.
As all properties are different and crime rates differ from area
to area, a risk assessment conducted will establish the
necessary grade required for each premises.
Home Guard - Horizon - Vista - Veritas - Premier - Aritech - Astec - HKC
From our experience of what a system, can and can't do, we
have found that the INIM SmartLiving Systems came top of
the class for, Reliability, Stability, Capabilities, Look & Style.
Because of this Colt Alarms decided to concentrate solely on
INIM SmartLiving products.

Before the establishment of Colt Alarms in1998, years of experience
had already been clocked up to promote us in our start-up.
Even then it was evident alarm companies that trained in only one
alarm product, became stumped when faced with different alarm
systems. As a company Colt Alarms recognised the value of having
a broad spectrum of knowledge, for the many different makes and
models of security alarm systems.
Because of this, through the recession, while other alarm companies
went out of business, Colt Alarms grew its customer data base.
Helping new customers left in the lurch, after their installation companies
became un- contactable, due to closure. Colt Alarms came to the rescue.

Changing With The Times
Colt Alarms have dealt with many alarm manufactures over the years. Astec Ltd
was formed back in the nineties, where it became the Irish market leader. In 2012 it
was taken over by HKC Ltd. This stopped the manufacturing of Astec alarm parts,
leaving installation alarm companies and their customers in a very awkward position.
Dealing With Alarm Manufactures
Because of this Colt Alarms came to the decision, to use alarm products and systems
from alarm manufactures that sold their products worldwide. Dealing with large
companies meant these manufactures, are not reliant on the Irish market. Unlike Irish
manufactures which are solely dependent on the Irish market, just like Astec Ltd was
leading to its downfall.
Using World Wide Products
This is a bit like the (3 little pigs story) with the straw - wooden - brick houses, i know
the one I would choose.
Deciding between an alarm system which contains a Metal Control Panel or a Plastic
Control Panel should not be difficult either, If you know what you’re getting in advance.
Many customers don't take notice of the control panel; some even think the control panel
is the separate key pad you enter your code in! The Control Panel is in fact the main brain
of the alarm system and the most important part of the system. It contains the power supply
and back-up power supply, plus communication devices.
So when it comes to all in one units with built-in key pad (plastic units) that are normally
positioned close to an entry point. Due to security risk Colt Alarms have taken the stance,
not to install these type of units. As a good blow with a blunt object can render these
So it comes down to the questions you ask, before you purchase your alarm system.
