Issues to consider before claiming a discount from your insurer are:
1 - The saving on your policy may be outweighed by the additional costs incurred
which may include a NACOS certificate.
2 - The savings may be under £30 on some policies but the annual mandatory service
to the system could be substantially more than the saving.
3 - You will be required to use your alarm in accordance with your insurers’ dictates.
Failure to do so by any member of the family could result in your claim being declined
or at the best the imposition of a much higher insurance excess.
For these reasons we recommend not accepting a discount
granted as a result of your burglar alarm installation.

These systems use battery powered detectors communicating with control systems. The
advantage of no wiring is far outweighed by the potential disadvantages. For example,
interference from other wireless transmissions which can cause blocking of the detector
transmissions and keyfob arm/disarm functions. Another disadvantage is the constant
renewing of the batteries. The cumulative cost of these can be quite substantial
over the lifetime of the system. It is our considered opinion that in most instances,
a professionally fitted wired system should not create any mess or visible wiring
and will give a low cost and reliable service. However, there are occasions when
wireless detectors are the correct choice. Please ask for advice.
