No-fee alarm kits: Are they really secure?

In recent years, alarm kits have become an alternative for people who want to protect their home or business. The main differences compared to connected alarms are the absence of fees and the fact that they are installed by the individual. What may at first appear to be advantages, especially in terms of cost, can, in a shorter or longer period of time, turn into real headaches. Experts and some consumer organisations, such as the German Stiftung Warentest, warn of the dangers of these alarm kits. These systems, which are easily found in construction and DIY shops, on the internet and in discount shops, provide a false sense of security, as their very basic functions have many shortcomings.

The main limitations of no-fee alarm kits are:


What does it mean that alarm kits are not connected to an ARC?


Mobile phone connectivity to the alarm opens the door to hackers

While many alarm kits offer the possibility of connecting the device to the mobile phone, and sometimes even offer smart home services, it has been shown that these systems can sometimes have major security flaws in the protection of sensitive data.

In contrast, alarms connected to an Alarm Reception Centre have a team of security specialists ready to act immediately following the protocols established by the Ministry of the Interior.

When it comes to security, the solutions must be the right ones and they must also be perfectly installed. Therefore, it is best to seek specialist advice. Connected alarms try to achieve security that is completely adapted to the needs of each home or business, achieving the best protection.

For each of these shortcomings, connected alarms offer effective solutions:


The hold-up button

In the event of intrusions in the home or business premises, if there is coercion, connected alarms offer a silent alarm function, which, when activated, immediately alerts the Alarm Reception Centre and notifies the police without the intruders being aware of it.
