Advantages Great Peace Of Mind
We all like to feel safe in our homes and one way to ensure this is having an alarm system fitted to your home that will protect you should you either be in bed at night or out and away from home. Having five children I decided to make us and our possessions safe by installing an alarm system and with so many on the market it was a very difficult decision. After considering many different models I settled on the BT Home MonitorVP 1000 system which best fitted my needs. Below I will tell you how easy it is to install and the benefits of buying such self install systems and how it operates. This way of installing an alarm system can save you thousands of pounds.Setting Up
Equipment : Control Panel, Two Key Fobs, Alarm Box, 3 Room Sensors, 1 Magnetic Door Catch.Fitting is very easy and below I will take you through it step by step how the instructions showed me even the worst technophob could set this up as you will see.
1. The control panel can be placed on any wall you wish always best near the front door where mine is located it is easily fixed with screws and has no wires other than a power cord which needs to go into the mains and a phone line that needs to be plugged into the phone socket and alarm control panel.2. Once you have attached the unit to the wall then you need to place the magnetic bar on the front door half on the door and the other half opposite on the door frame, this is secured with either screws or sticky pads provided and when closed causes a circuit.
3. Place the three sensors in the main areas of risk in the house such as living rooms and kitchens wherever you feel somebody may enter you property they operate at a distance of 1.8 meters to a target and are ideal facing windows. They have a pet detect setting which means dogs and cats are not detected due to size and weight.4. Place the outside alarm box on the wall high up on the outside of your property its LED light will flash when the alarm is operated and the sound is absolutely horrendous. There are no wires as the whole system is wireless.
5. Your system is ready to be set up just register online or over the phone with BT and then they will instruct you when you can power up the unit and install the phone cable. You will then be able to check the status of your home security online from any computer over the net and set up your alerts to mobiles and landline phones so when the alarm is activated it will let you know you can register three numbers to be alerted.6. Carry your key fob with you as this can turn on and off the alarm system and has a panic button so if you are indoors and in danger you can press the panic button on the fob and an alert that you are in trouble will be sent to your designated numbers.
If anybody enters your property whilst the alarm is set they will need to know your pin number to cancel the alarm you do get about a minute to enter this code before the alarm will sound and alerts will be sent. The sensors will set the alarm off should anybody enter their range and send an alert, forced entry through the front door again will activate the alarm and send alerts once the magnetic circuit is broken.
