I found this video (a bit old but very interesting) on Youtube and decided to share it with you. An alarm system is an advanced security solution, but how efficient is it?
In the UK things are not that different, according to the policy on Police Response to Security Systems, the alarm activation must be confirmed before the Police would respond. Alarm activation is confirmed when a second detection device is activated during the intrusion (it reduces the chances of a false alarm activation). However in the UK if the Police is notified, the Police Response Level for intrusion is 1 (immediate response).
Although the Police response to security systems in the UK is better than in other countries, as experienced locksmiths, we believe that it's better to prevent a burglary than to count on the Police to arrest the thief or to find your stolen property.
