Intruder Alarms

Where you have no desire to have your home uprooted to run cables, messing with your decor. We can fit high quality wireless systems that require only a mains supply and possibly a telephone line if you don’t wish to take advantage of GSM or IP LAN systems to monitor your system.

MMV also provide a range of communicator devices such as BT Redcare, Redcare GSM, along with Dulacom from CSL and Digiair

Monitoring of your alarm system can be carried out  via our connections to alarm monitoring centres around the country. Alternatively if you prefer, we can fit speech diallers instead that cut out the middleman and the annual charges.

It is advisable that the minimum specification of alarm you install has at least a speech dialler.  Upon activation this can call you, your designated key holders.  All these numbers can easily be -reprogrammed by you as your needs and circumstances change.

On offer are a range of intruder alarms from basic hardwired domestic systems through to full featured systems for your home or business.

We use only recognised quality manufacturers of systems and devices. Names such as Eaton (formerly Menvier & Scantronic), Pyronix, Optex, Texecom, Visonic. Always utilising the best products from their offerings that closely matches our clients’ needs and budgets.

Police Response Alarms

Police Response Alarms are not offered as part of our service.  Unless you have a real need or are pressed into it by an insurance company.  The risk must justify this course of action, but we would avoid them as they are;

  • expensive to install due to the design requirement.
  • ongoing high expense to monitor again due to the design requirement.
  • More expensive to maintain due to the insurer’s requirement.
  • You MUST have a keyholder who can be on site within 20 minutes of the call being received.
  • Outwardly to the intruder they would look no different to a non-police response alarm installation.
  • There is no guarantee that even after you have paid out all the extra costs that you will actually get a police response.
  • it’s you who goes into the property first, not the police.
  • False alarms can become expensive and are the route the police take to take you off their “response” service.
  • After false alarms lose your status you will usually have to invest more money bringing the system “back up to standard.

Why have an alarm?

Research by by criminologists and  professionals found that burglars said that a home with an alarm fitted was a lesser target. Although an alarm is a good deterrent you should set out to achieve a level of quality physical security as well. In fact, the installation of physical security deterrence equipment should be your prime concern.

It’s all very well to have a state of the art alarm system, but if you are burgled and subsequently found to have missed locking a door or properly securing a window, you may find that your insurance company are not quite so understanding.  Remember your insurers will do everything they can to avoid paying out on a claim – as this affects their annual profits!
