    Will my burglar alarm be Pet-friendly?

    Blake Fire & Security Systems recognise that not all family members are human. Our home alarm systems can be pet-friendly too, so your cats and dogs won't set your alarm off. Read more about systems that can work with your animals here.

    Can I have wireless or does my home alarm need to be wired?

    There's no easy answer, it all depends on your circumstances. Call us and we will talk you through the options. But don’t forget to click the red button below to get a site survey so a professional can assess your circumstances and ensure you get the perfect system, designed specifically for your home.

    What towns in Essex can Blake's cover?

    We are based in Southend-on-Sea but our engineers and installers are happy to install, maintain and monitor burglar alarms for homes in other parts of Essex - like Basildon, Brentwood, Chelmsford and Colchester, for example. We also work in the various London boroughs.
    The engineers arrived on time and on the day arranged, they fitted the CCTV without any disruption or mess, they were very helpful explaining how to operate the system, nothing was too much trouble.

    The whole process from survey to fitting the CCTV was handled in a very professional manner.

    I would have no hesitation in recommending Blake Fire and Security.

    Monitored home alarms

    Is a maintenance contract absolutely necessary?

    Regular maintenance is critical to keep your home alarm system fit for purpose. Your alarm will last for years but, rather like your car, it needs regular servicing. This is something the police recommend. Read more here.

    What’s a monitored system and do I need it?

    Sadly, as many as 75% of burglar alarm activations are ignored by other homeowners. Blake Fire & Security Systems offer you the option of using our NSI Gold monitoring partners, Southern Monitoring. This means your property is monitored 24/7 and the Police will be notified and respond in case of an emergency. But see will the Police come? section below. Read more about our Monitoring service.

    Will the Police come?

    According to the MET as many as 92% of alarm activations are false. The police will not automatically attend an alarm activation unless specific quality criteria are met. The good news is Blake Fire & Security Systems can design and install a home alarm system that complies with these requirements. Your home can be as safe as houses with us. For more information read this blog post about Police requirements.

    What about Key Holders?

    To qualify for a full Police response, there need to be two Key Holders at least. These need to be contactable and trained to operate the system. If you are struggling to complete your Key Holder list Blake Fire & Security Systems offer to be the Key Holder for you, even on a temporary basis. This service is limited to monitored systems only!

    We’re fully insured, engineers are SIA licensed and available 24 hours a day.
