Burglar alarms vary significantly in price. At the bottom end of the market, you’ll find cheap DIY alarms costing under £50. You can also just put up a dummy bell box. These may deter amateur burglars but many criminals can recognize a dummy or DIY system and ignore it. A professionally logo on a bell box will always command more respect from a potential criminal and will therefore act as a stronger deterrent.
At the other end of the scale a sophisticated monitored systems with additional features that are installed by professionals can cost £1000 or even more.
The average cost to have an alarm installed is typically around halfway between the two extremes. You may find that the cost of fitting an alarm system is lower than you originally anticipated.
