How to Choose an Alarm System

Finding quality alarm systems on the Gold Coast is as easy as calling us here at Terry’s Lock and Security Solutions.

We offer an array of options to suit your wants and needs. There are many great reasons to have an alarm system installed in your home, but the primary one is for the safety and security of your entire family.

Not sure where to start?

Here are some tips that will help you find the ideal alarm system for your house. 

What are You Protecting?

Obviously you want to protect the people living in your home, but it’s a good idea to do a security assessment to see where there may be gaps in the protection you have around the house.

Take into consideration the valuable possessions you have inside your home as well as your house itself. Are there areas that are more easily accessible to a would be intruder?

Think about all of this when you choose the type of system you need. 

Types of Alarm Systems

We offer several kinds of alarm systems so understanding the merits of each goes a long way toward helping you choose.

One of our most popular options is a mobile activated system that sends you alerts on your smartphone if there’s trouble.

If you can’t be reached, a mobile patrol will be dispatched to check on things for you. 

Our stay mode alarms enable you to activate the system when you’re at home for extra peace of mind.

Some of our systems come with PIR cameras that allow you to see what’s going on, even if you aren’t at home. We also offer keyless entry systems and fob entry systems.

With so many choices, we can certainly help you find the best solution for your needs. 

Ease of Use

There’s nothing worse than coming home and accidentally setting off your home alarm, then being unable to shut it off.

It’s important to consider who will be using the system before having it installed. If your kids will have to shut it off after school because you aren’t home, it pays to make sure they know how to operate the system.

Don’t choose one that’s too confusing for everyone in the house to use. And once you pick one out, be sure everyone knows how to work it.
