The best security on the market, at a fraction of the cost

Our LiveTalk system provides the best security on the market, and because we’re family-owned we can do this at low prices - as we don’t have the overheads of our larger multi-national competitors like ADT, Secom or Verisure.

We pride ourselves on our low monthly alarm monitoring costs. Where as our competitors charge £40+ month, we only charge £18.99 a month- and this is LiveTalk monitoring.

Smart Home functionality as standard

Our main range of alarms come ‘Smart Home ready’ meaning we can easily add the ability to control your alarm via your mobile phone.  Features of our Smart alarm features include:

Smart alarm

- Remote set / unset: control & monitor the status of your security wherever you are

- Calendar history: view all historic events across all devices e.g. see when your children get home at night, see if anyone’s been into your private study, get historic activation data (to check false alarms)

- Recipes / rules: create special ‘recipes’ (rules) that link devices & sensors, creating a truly smart home.  For example, create a rule that ‘turns on your hall light IF you open your front door’ or ‘automatically set your alarm IF you’re out of the house’ (N.B. Recipes are only available on the Premier system - not Compact)
