    hello
    can any of you recommend me a good home alarm system with dialler
    do you recommend diy installation (i can do this)
    or a company installation
    i think i would prefer door window contacts as i had pirs in last house and they were mega sensitive and would go of with the slightest change in surroundings (sometimes clouds going over the sun changing shadows would activate it)
    dialler would be ideal as i work within a minute of home
    (can these ring mobile phones?)
    with the early nights coming theres been a few homes down my way getting attemped breakins latley and i really should have had one up ages ago
    any advice appreciated
    im looking to get one this week
    thanks

    Give your insurance company a call and ask if they will accept a DIY install, and give you a discount. You may find with insurance discount a professional install works out cheaper in the long run.

    Best done by experts, because......

    (a) DIY jobs are not recognised by insurance companies - professionally fitted alarms can get you an insurance discount,

    and (b) if the dialler is ringing a mobile phone, it could work out expensive if you get lots of false alarms.
