Our effective Alarm Systems here at East Kent Electrical are the best way to protect your home, possessions, family, or East Kent business. Scaring off 80% of burglars, we recommend our top seller (Bell Box). When a break-in is detected, the activation of the loud bell encourages the intruder to flee the ara quickly. Even if the burglar is persistent, occupants are alerted so that they can act. Alongside our excellent alarm systems in East Kent, we supply a mobile phone app that enables you to easily monitor the system.

Devote to Quality

During each stage of your Burglar Alarm installation, East Kent Electrical take full responsibility, which includes the site survey, design, installation, and ongoing maintenance. Our East Kent team offer a wide variety of different products to ensure that we meet and exceed your security requirements.

The Technologies

East Kent Electrical are available to discuss your alarm system options at a convenient time for you. During this, we can explain the technologies, benefits, and cons of each system to ensure you make the best decision.

Purchasing a cheap and basic Audible Only system from a DIY store won’t be very effective or guarantee strict safety measures. However, selecting a qualified alarm installer, such as East Kent Electrical, ensures that your installation, set up and maintenance will be to the highest possible standards. 

Two Technologies: Wired & Wireless


Are you looking for an easy, less disruptive installation? Then, we think that wireless alarms are certainly the best option for you. During this installation, there is no need to lift carpets, run cables under floorboards, move furniture, or drill holes through walls. Not only does this reduce the cost of installation cost compared to a hard-wired system, but also they are more portable which means they can be removed for relocating or redecorating purposes. However, the equipment is much more expensive. 

Each device contains specific batteries that power it, which usually need to be replaced yearly.

Wireless systems can only reach British Standards EN50131 / PD6662 Grade 2 (Medium Risk), which is stated in your quotation.


Our other sturdy, reliable option is hard-wired alarm systems. Even though wired alarm systems require less maintenance, they have to be installed by a specialist to hide the cables, which increases the installation cost.

Installations of hard-wired alarm systems should always meet with British Standards EN50131 / PD6662 and conform to the NPCC Intruder Alarm Policy. Ensure this is documented with the Risk Grading in your quotation. The systems available cover all the grades.

Usually, we set your hard-wired Alarm when you leave and if an intrusion is detected it will activate the sounder which will ring for 5 minutes. The sounder can be stopped by an entry through the correct route and the deactivation code entered within 25 seconds. When you go to bed, it can be part set so that only the downstairs will activate.

The Wired Alarms we install in your home are set when you leave. If it detects an intrusion the sounder will activate and ring for 15 minutes unless entry is made through the correct entry route and the deactivation code is entered within 25 seconds. They can be part set when you go to bed so that the downstairs only will activate. These can also be linked to our monitoring station so that the key holders and emergency services are alerted upon activation.
