Burglar Alarm Systems East Kent

What's involved in rewiring?

No matter where you live in the UK nowhere is completely crime-free. Burglaries are highly common and can happen anywhere, at any time. Here at East Kent Electrical, we supply a range of efficient Burglar Alarms, which are a great way of protecting your home, possessions, family, or business. Our high-quality Alarm Sounder (Bell Box) scares off 80% of burglars; the activation of the sounder as soon as a break-in is detected encourages the intruder to flee. Even if the burglar sticks around, this warns occupants so that they can act promptly. Not only do we offer excellent systems, we also have our own mobile phone app, available on all app stores, which allows you to monitor your system easily.

Standard grading system for Alarms:

  • Grade 1 Low Risk
  • Grade 2 Medium Risk
  • Grade 3 High Risk


Our East Kent security team have written a simple guide for you to understand more about the types of alarm that we have available.

What's involved in rewiring?

Dedicated to Quality

All of our work complies with the clear guidelines that we are given by The British Standards. BS 4737 EN 50131 PD 6662 embraces the design, installation, and maintenance of Alarm Systems, and for monitored systems, the appropriate ACPO Policy applies.

We take full responsibility for each stage of your Burglar Alarm, including the site survey, design, installation, and ongoing maintenance. We can offer various products to ensure we meet your security requirements.

The Technologies

Choosing a system can be a difficult decision and we want to make sure you select the best one for your property. Our East Kent team will explain your options in detail and the pros and cons of each. This ensures you decide on an alarm system that successfully meets all of your needs and requirements.

Unless you want to rely on a basic Audible Only system that you can buy off the shelf and aren’t very accurate, you will need a highly qualified alarm installer in East Kent, which is where our amazing team comes in. Our staff can professionally supply, install, set up, and maintain your alarm system.

Two Technologies: Wired & Wireless


When it comes to the installation, wireless alarm systems are much easier and less disruptive because there is no need to lift carpets, run cables under floorboards, move furniture or drill holes through walls. This reduces the installation cost massively compared to a hard-wired system, however, the equipment is more expensive. If you are looking to move home or re-decorate, wireless systems can be removed alarms as they are portable.

Yearly, the specific batteries for each individual device will most likely need to be replaced for it to function properly.

In your quotation, we will state that wireless systems can only reach British Standards EN50131 / PD6662 Grade 2 (Medium Risk). 


Are you looking for a more robust, reliable alarm system? If so, hard-wired alarm systems are certainly the ones for you. The installation needs to be completed by experts to ensure that all the cables are hidden, which will increase the installation cost. However, once installed they require less maintenance. 

Hard-wired alarm system installations have to meet with British Standards EN50131 / PD6662 and conform to the NPCC Intruder Alarm Policy. We ensure this is documented with the Risk Grading in your quotation. The systems available cover all the grades.

Usually, the Hard-Wired Alarm we install is set when you leave and if an intrusion is detected it will activate and the sounder. This will ring for approximately 5 minutes unless entry is made through the correct entry route and the deactivation code is entered within 25 seconds. You can part set it when you go to bed so that only downstairs will activate.
