Deciding To Fit Wired Or Wireless
One thing to take into consideration when replacing an old wired
alarm system. ( How old is the wiring in the premises? )
Cabling 12 years and older will have deteriorate over time.
Old wiring can cause problems down the line, with the corrosion
of insulation with age. Stretching of cables is also a contributory
factor, due to buildings sinking over time.

that can occur in the future.

Bell Only Systems
Bell only systems are a very dated aspect of alarm systems, people putting their faith into one of these systems, are leaving
themselves a lot less secure. Generally people don't take a blind bit of notice of alarm sounders, such that the external bell
has become obsolete due to the latest EN regulations that only allow sounders to ring for a maximum time of 15 minutes.
This has caused many alarm companies to only fit external bell boxes with company logos, which act a visual deterrent,
plus saving the customer excess cost.
