How much does it cost to install a home alarm?
So you decided to go about installing an alarm system and now it is up to you to find out and compare prices, check which alarm systems are recommended and of course how much will it cost you to install the alarm system. So in order to save you the exhausting searches, we have summarized for you in one place the prices of the various alarm systems, the prices of the extras and even sample quotes that will make you order.
What the quote for installing an alarm system should include?
The needs of an alarm system are very individual and it is best to tailor an alarm system to suit your needs, but there are things that every basic alarm system should include: detectors (you choose the types of detectors as needed), keyboard (check if the system supports your language, if this is important to you ), Hub (the alarm brain to which all parts of the system are connected), sirens (the system that beeps when it detects suspicious movement). Of course there are additional features that you can customize according to your needs.
Wireless or wired alarm system?
Another common dilemma in the process of installing an alarm, is choosing the type of system, wired or wireless alarm. Both types of systems have advantages and disadvantages: A wireless alarm is easier to install and will allow wider control of the system, but a more expensive price than a wired alarm. Wired alarm as it is called, a system that requires internal wiring in the walls of the house. Therefore, in many cases where there is no suitable infrastructure for transmitting cables in the walls, we would prefer to give up preparing the infrastructure and install a wireless alarm
The alarm system is used to guard the house and provides a vital sense of security to its occupants. To make it work optimally for you, it is advisable to choose a quality system that will suit you and work 100% of the time smoothly. But how do you know which alarm system will work for you? What should you choose, what should you install and why should you pay attention?
So that you do not lose your temper and pay an exorbitant amount for a system that will torment you in the future, we are happy to focus here on what is important to know – about alarms, safety and customization.
The main division between the different types of alarm systems is between wired alarm systems and wireless alarm systems.
What are the differences?
what’s the matter? Think about the difference between the landline phone you once had at home (yes, that old one, with the wire…) and your sophisticated cell phone. This is exactly the difference between a wired and a wireless system: a wired alarm system that connects to walls, operates on the basis of wires that are connected to electricity and sensors that communicate with each other linearly. The wireless system, on the other hand, is like your mobile: the various alarm components (sensor, horn, control) are connected to each other in an internal wireless network. No wires, no electrical outlets.
So which is better for me?
This is where the real dilemma begins… Since each type of system has its advantages and disadvantages, it is difficult to recommend with certainty one type or another. So instead of making an opinion, let’s get to know the different aspects of each system:
A wired alarm system is very reliable. The wires get inside the walls, are hard to damage and will operate completely safely throughout the life of the system. Since it is plugged in wired, you will never have to bother with replacing batteries. Sounds perfect, but there is a big “but” here: a wired alarm system should be installed during the construction of the house or during renovation, since moving the lines requires penetration into the walls (or external, less safe and aesthetic wiring, which is commonly used in institutional buildings). The cost of the system is cheap, but the cost of installation will be expensive. In short, if you are just building or renovating – a wired system will be perfect for you. If not, you will probably prefer to skip and go for a wireless system.
A wireless alarm system is again like your mobile: dependent on an external network. This means that if a network failure occurs, the system will stop working, and if there is no reception or the signal is slow, the performance of the system will decrease.
What to do? Take care to purchase a quality system that will flow without problems, and enjoy extremely aesthetic parts that are easy to install, with a reliable signal. Here the system is the expensive part, while the installation is very cheap. A wireless alarm system can be installed anywhere regardless of the characteristics of the home, so it is very useful for use in a built or rented home.

Types of Alarm Detectors - We tested 8 popular alarm detectors
Alarm systems have become very popular in recent years, thanks to their ability to keep home and business in any situation, and alert if there is a risk of burglary. Yet many do not attach importance to the different types of detectors of alarm systems. Detectors play a crucial role in whether the burglar will be able to break into you or not. Therefore, it is important that before you purchase an alarm system, you know the types of detectors so that you know that the installer is doing his job well and installing the appropriate detectors for you.
These are the most popular alarm detectors:
This detector is connected by a magnet to the front door or windows, and when the door or window is opened the detector activates the alarm system. This detector is especially recommended for the protection of rear doors and windows.
indoor motion detector
An indoor motion detector works by sending two light rays, an upper light beam and a lower light beam, and it detects suspicious movements by detecting the temperature that changes in the room. This detector is recommended for installation in enclosed spaces.
Outdoors motion sensor
Outdoor motion sensor consists of infrared sensors that aim to detect outdoor motion, for example the yard area or area leading to the business. This detector ignores animal movement, is resistant to all weather conditions and can detect movement up to a range of 50 feet. The detector can be installed in the exterior walls of the house.
A flood detector is installed mainly in buildings where there is a risk of flooding, in the event of a leak or flooding of a certain area. The detector detects the danger and activates the alarm. This detector is especially suitable for installing alarms for businesses, offices and public places.
indoor curtain detector
A curtain detector is the best solution for warning of breakthrough windows, the detector creates from a transparent curtain that covers basically the entire window or area we want to protect. This detector is suitable for any place where it is necessary to secure the windows, but keep in mind that it is very sensitive to any opening of the window, and sometimes a wind can also activate it.
outdoor curtain detector
An outdoor curtain detector is designed to protect large windows or showcases. The detector detects movement by an infrared light, so we can have windows open and the alarm will only go off when the detector detects someone passing by. The detector is mainly suitable for the security of large windows to the house, such as a large display case leading to the yard and due to the relatively small size of the detector it can be installed in a hidden and clean way.
An acoustic detector is powered by a small microphone inside, and when it detects a shattered glass for example, the detector will sound the alarm. The detector is mainly suitable for the security of shop windows and shop windows of shops and businesses.
Active beam detector
An active beam detector actually creates a beam between the two parts of the detector, the advantage of the beam detector is that it can reach very long distances and cover a larger area (such as a long fence or wall).
