the different alarm companies will state that their security systems
are the best. The two main areas to consider before
purchasing an alarm are:
1. Does the alarm system you are considering have an 868Mhz operating system, and
2. For UK customers, is it manufactured to British (EU) Standards
Both of these considerations are a MUST HAVE. The 868 MHz frequency operating system is that much more secure than the older 433 MHz system however, that is not to say that those types of alarms are of no use - just consider the 868 frequency as being superior.

As far as people failing to react to an alarm the recommendation here is to always fit an alarm that has monitoring capabilities such as those found here. What happens here is that when the alarm is activated it uses your telephone - landline or mobile - to automatically dial a serious of numbers that you have fed into it. When it gets a reply it then plays an automated message to let the person know that the alarm has activated.
