Wired Alarm Systems Basingstoke

Traditionally, alarm systems have been wired, either as a retro fit installation to an existing property or as part of the build specification on a new property.

Wiring comprises of a multicore cable linking the alarm central processing unit to a variety of periphery devices and detectors. These cables carry a voltage of 12V and incorporate a number of detection circuits, sometimes measuring the resistance of a cable in order to establish the type of alarm generated.

All will carry a tamper detection circuit for added security. Individual battery powered detectors are not needed on a fully wired system although a standby battery is fitted to both the main panel and the external sounder to continually power the alarm system giving you peace of mind that you’re always protected even through the majority of power cuts.

Although most systems we now install are wireless, wired systems can still be installed if preferred or needed to comply with specific requirements. For example, a grade 3 system, the highest level of system available, requires all devices to be wired. This usually only applies to medium to high risk commercial installations and occasionally very high risk residential installations where very specific types of detector are needed. Some customers are wary of wireless although it is stressed that the radio frequency that alarm detectors work on is not the same as the “Wi-Fi” that your phone, tablet and equipment such as Nest, smart TV’s and Hi-Fi’s use.

We would also normally specify a wired system where a builder or developer has pre-wired a property ready for an alarm.

Effectiveness wise, there is very little to choose between a wired system and a wireless system in terms of reliability and performance.

Why Use Care Guard?

Established in 1984 as R.I.C. Alarms, we changed our name and became a limited company in 1989, achieving NSI/NACOSS standard in 1996 having previously been a member of the SSAIB achieving their “Certificate of Merit” for many years.

We have well over 100 years combined experience, initially working predominately within the new housing sector for both small and national developers across the south of England. In fact we were one of the very first companies in the UK and certainly the South, to bring affordable systems to the new build housing market as part of the standard home specification. Previously this would have been a retro fit extra and then for only the more exclusive homes.

From this beginning, we diversified into general residential, commercial, industrial & specialist properties and projects across the South, installing, maintaining and servicing all types of electronic property security.

Our direct employed, fully vetted engineers receive extensive training before being allowed to work unsupervised in your property. We carry full insurance for your added security and peace of mind.
