How to find a reliable, local home security system installer

Home security specialists design security systems for your home or workplace, often carrying out assessments to determine how secure your property is. This includes fitting burglar alarms and fire alarms, as well as surveillance cameras and outdoor motion detector lighting.

What a home security specialist can help you with

A security specialist’s job is to secure your home so that it’s protected from break in attempts. They can help with:

  • Installing alarm systems, including burglar alarms and fire alarms
  • Installing CCTV cameras
  • Fitting roller shutters on garage doors and garage locks
  • Fitting a new lock on a door
  • Fitting security fencing, security gates and security bollards
  • Fitting security grilles on windows and doors
  • Increasing your door security by adding extra deadlocks, reinforcing your door frame, or adding a peep hole, door bolt, or security chain

Burglars are always on the lookout for homes that don’t seem secured against intruders. Installing a reinforced door, security cameras, and a burglar alarm can discourage thieves from trying to break into your property.

Types of home security systems

There are several ways you can protect your home from intruders. The more security systems you invest in, the safer you and your belongings will be if someone does try to break into your home. Security systems can also protect you from fire, smoke and carbon monoxide exposure. The below are a few of the main security systems:

Type of security system Key features
Burglar alarmsAn alarm connected to your front door that goes off when someone attempts to break in. Some security alarms also have window detection, and can notify the police when the alarm sounds.
Fire alarms / smoke alarmsAlarms that protect you from potential harm by going off when they detect smoke or fire. Some fire alarms alert your local fire station when they go off, can release sprinklers to extinguish the fire, and can also notify you when your batteries die.
Carbon monoxide detectorsCarbon monoxide is a colourless and odourless gas that can be fatal to humans if they’re exposed to it. Carbon monoxide detectors alert you if there’s a leak so you can evacuate your home safely.
CCTV camerasSecurity cameras monitor everyone who goes near your property, and also act as a visual deterrent for burglars, who prefer to avoid homes that have CCTV cameras installed.
Security lightingMotion detection lights and motion sensors are triggered when someone approaches your property, acting as a deterrent to thieves who like to operate in the dark.

Many security systems offer smart home features, like smart alarms and video doorbells. By enabling notifications on your mobile phone, you can receive alerts if a home alarm goes off when you’re not in. Video doorbells allow you to see who’s at the door without having to open it, and enable you to communicate remotely with them from your phone.

You can also opt to get premium security locks professionally installed by speaking to a local locksmith in your area. They’ll be able to recommend a good model for your home and door.

For more details on securing your home against break ins, read our improving your home’s security blog. Or, speak to a home security specialist today to get some advice on protecting your property.

Factors to consider when hiring a home security specialist

Some things can’t be replaced. Avoid the heartbreak of a burglary, and ensure you and your loved ones stay safe, by investing in a home security system. Look out for security system installers that:

  1. Have a strong history of successful projects
  2. Have all the necessary licenses and insurance needed to protect you and their workers
  3. Have a good range of positive reviews from other homeowners
  4. Are offering the service you need, and are available to carry out the work in the timeframe you need it by
  5. Are quoting a price and payment option that you are happy with, having compared the quote with other local home security companies

A local security system installer is more likely to respond quickly as they’ll be right around the corner and ready to help.

Recently had a break in? Contact an emergency locksmith to get your locks replaced within 24 hours.

How much does it cost to hire a home security specialist?

How much you end up paying for home security features depends on the model and its smart features, as well as where you live in the UK.

On average, you can expect to pay:

  • Between £400 and £800 for a wireless CCTV system, or between £700 and £1,000 to install a wired CCTV system. For the differences between these systems, and which you should get, read our burglar alarm FAQs blog
  • Between £30 and £300 to install a fire alarm
  • Between £400 and £700 to install a burglar alarm

For more details about prices, and which security systems you should get, speak to a skilled security installer today. It will give you peace of mind that you’re doing everything you can to keep your home safe and secure.

Do home security systems require planning permission?

Security alarms don’t usually need planning permission. If you live in a listed building, or in a conservation area, we recommend you check with your local planning authority first, as different rules may apply.

If your CCTV camera captures people outside of the boundaries of your home (such as a neighbour’s house or garden, or a public area), then you’ll need to make sure your security camera is GDPR and DPA compliant.

For more details about applying for planning permission, read our planning permission guide, or visit the Planning Portal website.

Questions to ask your home security specialist before you hire

Whether you’re looking to install a video doorbell and other smart home alarms, or want motion sensors to trigger lights to come on in your back garden, a security specialist will be able to help. Before you hire, we recommend you ask your tradesperson the following questions:

  • Which security systems do you recommend for my home?
  • How many years of experience do you have?
  • How much will the job cost?
  • How long will the job take to complete?
  • Do you have public liability insurance?

Get your security system professionally installed by a home security specialist in your area.
