I'm moving in to a new, and my first, house soon and I'm looking into getting an alarm system. Before approaching firms to get quotes, I want to identify what I need/want and a rough cost. It's a 2 bedroom, semi-detached house in Leicestershire with “wiring only for future intruder alarm for keypad, control panel and bell box”. What I think I need/want: - wireless - telephone a specified number if there’s an intruder - no monthly contract Do I go for a independent company’s own branded alarm or something like Yale, Honeywell, Scantronic, Texecom etc.? Anything I should consider before buying one?
