A Car alarm systems nowadays are ‘trained’ only to detect specific sounds and movements which lessens false alarm incidents. For instance, pressure sensors do not respond to strong wind shifts by sounding the alarm. It should be accompanied by another sensor that registers a breach in security. If not, the pressure sensor will merely classify the movement as false alarm Q Will installing car or home alarm systems have an effect on my car and home insurance policies?
A You have to inform your insurance provider about the alarm systems installed in your home. Usually, homes with no alarm system installation are somewhat more costly to insure than those with none. Should you be connected with an insurance company which has their own preferred security alarm systems, it might be a better deal for you to have their preferred brand installed. Some insurance companies, on the other hand, would like you to own standardised approved alarms, such as those from NACOSS or SSAIB. Q Do I really need an alarm system?
A The main function of alarm systems is to protect you from burglary and other crimes, but if you think you live in a place that is safe enough and has a low-crime rate, or you are careful and efficient with locking up your home and vehicle, may be you don’t need one. However, if you live in a city where home burglaries and theft are common, it is a must that you get one installed in your home or vehicle. Over 180 reported home break-ins and theft a day occur in the London area, according to a Metropolitan Police report. That should get you thinking.
