Choose to protect your home and family with a Home Alarms Liverpool system makes a great deal of sense in these times of uncertainty. With the increasing incidence of home invasion and burglary, more and more homeowners are turning to security systems to help them find peace of mind. If you find yourself contemplating the question of home security, you'll need to know what to look for in a quality home alarms system. What components offer the best protection? Should you choose a professionally monitored system? What benefits define a quality, comprehensive security solution? Below, you will find a handy guide to help you determine what best fits your needs.
A quality home alarm or business alarm system consists of several components. One of the most important is the digital control pad. Because the display is large and illuminated, it is much easier to read. In addition, a digital keypad is very easy to use, providing you with the option of immediate access to police, fire and medical rescue services however the peripherals (sensors) should be wireless.
What types of peripherals should you look for?
Motion sensors provide obvious benefits. However some options can actually be problematic, especially if you have pets that can set off the alarm. Small children can also set off the motion sensors. The best option is to choose a system with smart sensors that can differentiate between pets, children and actual intruders. These sensors provide substantial protection against adult intruders, but will not be set off by small objects moving within their range. A motion sensor should be placed in hallways, in the living room area and near your access points for the best protection.
Of course, motion sensors are not the limit of protection that you need. You should also consider having door and window alarm sensors that protect these vulnerable areas. You should have a sensor on your front door, as well as your back door and any vulnerable ground floor windows in case of break-in. Other sensors can also be incorporated into your home alarms security system, which include fire/smoke detectors, carbon monoxide detectors, freeze detectors and flood warning sensors. All of these sensors can be incorporated into a comprehensive solution for home protection.
As mentioned, all of your peripheral sensors should be wireless. This helps avoid damaging the walls of your home, but also provides room for future growth and expansion of the system. As your family grows, your security needs will change. Wireless peripherals provide the best mixture of protection and flexibility, while the wired control panel ensures that you have the reliability that you need.
Another item of considerable interest is a remote arm/disarm solution. These are usually keychain fobs, which can be used to arm or disarm your alarm system from anywhere in the home, or even from the driveway. This is more than mere convenience; it can prove to be a very helpful feature in many different situations. A quality alarm system from a provider such as us at A1 APPROVED SAS HOME ALARMS will help keep your family safe and secure.

Wire-Free Burglar Alarms,
Wireless Technology for burglar alarm systems has speedily advanced in recent years.
Until now, wireless burglar alarms or (wire-free burglar alarms) were considered by most customers to be unstable due to costs. However, all this has changed with the new technology incorporated in the A1 Sas companies Wireless Security System.
Honeywell are recognised as world-wide leaders in the manufacture of security products and their Qalaxy Wireless Security System is one of the very best in the market. We know, because we've tested them all!
A1 Sas Home Alarms Liverpool specialise in wireless alarm technology. We sell the control panels, alarm sensors and other alarm devices for one good reason they do the job with no fuss or mess to your home or business.
To be effective, a wireless intruder alarm system must be infallible. It must be capable of reliably detecting intruders and should not false alarm.
...So Why Is The A1 wireless alarm So Much Better Than Most?
Whereas many other wireless alarm systems currently on the market use simplex radio communication - last generation technology - the Domonial uses Honeywell's own Duplex Alpha Radio protocol which is key to the Domonial’s stability.
The Honeywell Duplex Alpha Radio protocol is a state-of-the-art, two-way radio communication system that delivers real security. It makes the Domonial, without question, the most advanced, stable and secure two-way radio panel available on the market today.
Not only does the Domonial use its own unique protocol, it also uses 868MHz for its communication, a frequency that is reserved purely for the security industry. Many other wire-free alarm systems still use the old 433Mhz frequency. This frequency is shared by numerous other devices - such as garage door openers, car alarms, radio hobby projects, etc - and has a real potential to overload and cause a security system to false alarm.
Radio wireless signals can be affected by all sorts of abnormalities. The Honeywell Duplex Alpha Radio protocol uses six channels within the 868MHz frequency to send and receive different kinds of information. This makes it both exceptionally stable and extremely secure.
The panels of most other radio burglar alarm systems only have one chance to receive a message sent from a detection device, and if interference occurred whilst an alarm signal is being transmitted, it is highly likely that the alarm system would not activate. Nor are these radio systems smart enough to recognise that they have missed some communication. But the Domonial's bi-directional signalling ensures that the message always gets through.
It works by the Domonial transmitter sending a message on one channel, then its integral receiver switches into listen mode. If it doesn't get an acknowledgement message from the radio receiver within a predetermined time, it repeats the whole procedure until it does.
The Domonial fully conforms to PD6662:2004, DD243:2004 and EN50131 Grade 2 specifications.
PD6662:2004 is the current British Standard for burglar alarms. It almost completely superseded BS4737 in October 2005.
DD243:2004 is the British Standard for Installation and Configuration of Intruder Alarm Systems Designed to Generate Confirmed Alarm Conditions.
EN50131 is the current European Systems Standard. The security and insurance industries often use the term 'Risk Assessment' for EN 50131-1 (or the British equivalent PD6662), which lays down a structured Risk Assessment procedure for designers of intruder alarm systems.

This GSM unit not only works with our own alarm systems, but also works with insurance approved alarm systems too!
We are pleased to offer an add on GSM module. This means no longer do you have to site the alarm system by a telephone socket, in fact you do not even need a telephone line in the house, garage, office, stable or out-building. To enable this GSM module to function your existing alarm will need to be an auto dial system already, as this module just acts as a line for your system to dial out from. If your alarm system sends text message, this device will pass them on.
Just connect the house alarm telephone lead into the GSM module, connect the antenna, add a mobile phone SIM card plug in the power supply and the system is ready.
It could not be any easier than this. Please ensure that the mobile phone SIM card provider has a signal in your area. If your mobile phone works from home then we recommend that you buy the same providers 'pay as you go' SIM card.
You do not need to sign up to anything, or subscribe to a provider, just purchase a 'pay as you go' SIM card

SECURITY GRADES EXPLAINED
CALL FOR ADVICE ON 01519204612
From the 1st October 2005, the existing British Standards (BS4737, BS7042 and BS6799) have been withdrawn and replaced by the new European Standards BSEN 50131. The European Standards are NOT retrospective and systems installed to British Standards will still be maintained to that standard.
The European Standards rely on risk assessment to specify the equipment and system requirements. The risk assessments are banded into grades based on the type of risk and the effort an intruder might be prepared to use in a burglary.
As a result, the equipment used in alarm installations has also been graded to meet the criteria of the standards.
The Grades range from 1 (lowest risk) to 4 (highest risk)
Grade 1 is for a property unlikely to attract an intruder and that any attempted intrusion is likely to be a spur-of-the-moment occurrance with no prior planning.
Properties falling into this Grade would be low grade domestic properties without an insurance requirement.
Grade 2 applies to a property which might attract an experienced thief with some knowledge of alarm systems, access points, and may carry some tools which could be used to bypass a simple alarm system.
Properties falling into this Grade would be most domestic preperties and low-risk commercial properties e.g. greengrocers.
Grade 3 applies to a property at substantial risk of burglary - the property is likely to contain articles of high value/ease of disposal. The intruder could be expected to have a good knowledge of alarm systems
Properties in this grade would be high-risk domestic properties and most commercial properties e.g newsagents.
Grade 4 Intruders could be expected to plan in advance, have a good knowledge of alarm systems and the tools to bypass/change the alarm system. Intruders may also gain access through floors, walls and ceilings.
Properties falling into this Grade would be large jewellers, bullion stores etc.
For the DIY installer (without a specific instruction from an insurance company) it is entirely a matter of choice - it is not the quality of the product that is graded, rather it is the level of security, for example a PIR with a lid and wall tamper and anti-masking will be Grade 3, without any one of those features the Grade will drop to 2.
System wide, products of different Grades can be mixed within the system, however the overall grade of the system will be that of the lowest grade component used. .
