Home Security Southend

Keeping our family and possessions safe is a major concern for most homeowners. Everyone knows of someone who’s been affected by a break in, if not themselves. A properly secured home brings peace of mind that means you can go about your day and sleep soundly at night without worries.

But with so many alarm systems on the market, it’s easy to be tricked into a false sense of security… figuratively AND literally.

This post explores:

  • The cost of a home alarm system
  • Common mistakes to avoid
  • The importance and value of a professional installation

Buy cheap, buy twice

Everyone’s done it before:

  • Bought something on the cheap to save a few quid
  • Experienced the frustration when it inevitably breaks
  • Had to fork out again to get a new, better quality item
  • Made a note to self: Don’t do that again! Buy cheap, buy twice… and end up paying more in the long run!

The thing is, making that mistake with your home alarm system isn’t just inconvenient, it’s dangerous.

Home security systems you can buy off the shelf are no challenge to most burglars. Cheap alarms often result in false alarms, and burglars exploit this. Your neighbours are none the wiser. To a burglar, a generic system is a minor occupational hazard, not a true deterrent.

Imagine buying one of these systems, spending time and effort to fit it, then coming home to find you’d still been burgled! You thought you were protected, you’ve spent the money – why hasn’t it worked! The neighbours thought it was another false alarm, so did nothing after a quick glance and a grumble. That’s not just inconvenient, that’s devastating!

Professionally fitted home alarms aren’t as much as you’d think…

These days, you can buy just about anything in a DIY kit. From at home beer brewing and teeth whitening to… home alarms.

But, there’s no doubt that these kits don’t produce the same result as the real deal. Homemade beer is tolerable, whitening kits leave your teeth feeling gritty and sensitive and cheap alarm kits leave loopholes in your home security set-up.

It could be a lack of equipment to cover your entire home, or the cheap manufacturing that lets you down when you need it most.

Luckily, Eastern have an affordable, reliable alternative…
