1. Bells-only Intruder Alarm
Most customers who own an intruder alarm have a bells-only one. The area you live determines if you require a bells-only alarm. Can you relay on the local neighbourhood watch to call the police? Or maybe there are friends and relatives living close by that you are confident to take action?
No payment for a monitoring contract
No mobile alerts either when the alarm is triggered, unless your neighbours hear it and immediately contact you. Unfortunately, if nobody acts to stop a break-in, the alarm alone might not deter the intruders.
2. Intruder Alarm Dialler
With this type of alarm, the dialler contacts you or a nominated person when it goes off, allowing to contact the police or a neighbour with a key to investigate the issue. Most diallers allow the client to programme in between three and ten numbers to be called, which will be dialled in the priority order you've set. The first person successfully contacted will be able to stop the rest of the numbers from being reached.
No payment for a monitoring contract. You or the nominated person can be alerted when there is an intruder. Also, additional detectors can be added to warn about other types of threats, such as fires.
Might be too late if you are away and the designated person is unavailable.

However, not all smart security systems are a deterrent as it depends on the components included and their locations.
