EFS Systems (UK) Ltd for Intruder Alarms and CCTV

We all want to feel safe in our own home. We install Intruder alarms and full CCTV systems to organisations and homes in Cardiff, Swansea, Newport, Merthyr and across all of South Wales.

Unfortunately in today’s world crime statistics prove that our homes can become targets for burglars and the sense of security can easily be lost.

At EFS Systems our goal is to help you find the best way to protect your home and thus provide a safe environment for you and your family.

At EFS, we keep ourselves well informed of the latest advances in Burglar Alarms and CCTV technology and we can therefore offer you a tailor made package which will be ideally suited to your particular needs.

There is no doubt that Burglar Alarms and CCTV systems are a worthwhile investment in the protection of your home and family. Studies reveal that it is far less likely that you will become the victim of a burglary at home if you have a visible and correctly fitted and well maintained burglar alarm.

There are many different types of burglar alarms available for domestic and business use.

They can be broadly categorised into 2 main groups:-

  1. Bells Only Burglar Alarms
  2. Monitored Alarms.

The issue is further complicated as both the above types can be available as “hard-wired” or “wireless” systems.

With the first group – bells only burglar alarms – when the alarm is triggered by one of the alarm components, an outside bell or siren is activated. This will undoubtedly inform the burglar that they have been detected and may motivate them to leave.

The mere presence of an alarm system may also persuade a burglar to find an easier target.

However, in these days when many houses have alarms fitted the general public may choose to ignore the warnings bells.

How many times have you heard a burglar alarm going off and how may times have you taken any action about it? An alternative system is monitored alarms.

Monitored Alarms are connected by telephone to an Alarm Receiving Centre or ARC. When an activation occurs, the system automatically rings the ARC and notifies them of the activation. Staff at the ARC then take the relevant action.
