Deterrents Home Alarm Security Stickers

As a Police Officer, you very quickly learn that PREVENTING crime is far easier than investigating crime.

That works for home owners and business owners too – but rather preventing crime is far easier than making a report, filing an insurance claim, cleaning up all the mess and replacing all your items.

A visible external siren is brilliant – if it gets spotted!

By visibly displaying to criminals that your property is not only secured but also alarmed with a home alarm system, opportunistic burglars will be more likely to continue onto a more vulnerable home.

Adding our Monitored Audible Alarm stickers is a simple yet effective solution to make that extra display of security.

Our security alarm stickers are designed with the widely known Police battenberg markings. This is so your common crook would immediately associate the security sticker with Police!

iPhone Android Alarm Monitoring

Already have an alarm system installed?

Thinking of installing a new alarm system?

It’s 2018 – future proof your alarm and install one with smart phone communication modules!

You can now arm and disarm your alarm system directly from your iPhone or Android device using various phone applications.

Your current alarm system may already be capable of being upgraded to communicate with the internet – which will ultimately save you costs by having to install an entirely new alarm.

The phone apps are super simple to use. Just open, enter your pin and arm/disarm right from your phone.

You can also get real time notifications that an intruder or alarm activation is occurring. That means you can self monitor your alarm 24/7.

If you want to learn more about installing or upgrading an alarm so that you can control it right from your smartphone, talk to us now! Phone 0800 113 262 for a free no obligation chat.

IP CCTV vs Analog CCTV

IP CCTV security systems are state of the art CCTV cameras that protect your home, business or commercial premises.

Hikvision IP CCTV cameras are leading the way with their technological advancements and integrated video recorders. The Hikvision brand is well regarded as manufacturing reliable, high quality products.

So you might be wondering what the key differences are between IP CCTV cameras and Analog CCTV cameras?

IP stands for Internet Protocol, and refers to a digital video camera that can send and receive data via a computer network, as opposed to sending a feed to a Digital Video Recorder (DVR).

IP CCTV security cameras sending and receiving data over a computer network are advantageous for many reasons:



The best analog security cameras can’t even be compared to the worst type of IP camera when it comes to the resolution of the image it captures.

This speaks volumes of the difference between an IP CCTV camera and an analog camera. Additionally, IP cameras capture a much wider field of view than comparable analog cameras, meaning a single IP camera is potentially able to do the job of three to four of the traditional CCTV camera systems.

Have a look at the massive difference between (by all accounts a high quality) TVI CCTV system vs a new IP CCTV system.



Essentially what this means is that you can setup your network to flag specific events that occur in the cameras field of vision. This can include motion detection, objects being removed from the view of the camera (i.e. a car or garden equipment) and even flag for tampering of the camera itself.

The benefit is, instead of having to trawl through hours of footage when an event occurs, the network can tell you the specific time the event occurred and direct you right to them.

This simply cannot be done with traditional CCTV systems.



With a traditional analog DVR setup, each individual camera must be connected directly to the DVR itself.

IP CCTV cameras however, can circumvent this through the use of switches – which allow cameras in close proximity to each other to be connected to a single switch. This then allows the cameras to run on a single wire to the NVR (that’s the modern network video recorder).

This can dramatically reduce amount of cabling required, which can save on the labour component of your CCTV system installation.

Furthermore, because an ethernet cable is used to send and receive data between the NVR and the IP CCTV camera, the ethernet cable also powers the camera. This eliminates the need for a separate power cable.
