Intruder Alarm for a Detached House in Thorpe Bay, Essex

Date: 8 November 2022

We were asked to quote for an intruder alarm for a detached house in Thorpe Bay.

There was no existing security and the owner wanted an alarm system for safety.

The owner asked for a price for:

- a fully compliant intruder alarm system that would give full coverage across the property;

- a smart system that could be controlled on a mobile phone;

- and an annual maintenance contract to ensure optimal performance of the system.


We installed a wireless Texecom Elite intruder alarm system. This included a panel, bell, keypad, passive infrared sensors (PIRs) and door contacts.

We use Texecom because they manufacture reliable, quality systems. And they are easy for customers to use.

The Texecom SmartCom app makes the system smart and mobile-friendly. You can control your security and receive notifications of system events from your smartphone or tablet. From anywhere in the world.

The SmartCom app can also be connected to your home IP cameras, if you have a CCTV system on site.

These security solutions mean the customer feels more safe and secure when in the house. And when they are out.
