Hello, we are a satellite TV installation company suppling Satellite TV + Internet connections to ex-pats living in Spain. We are asked on many occassions about burglar alarms, when on site. So with things the wqy they are at the moment, it would seem a good time to add this activity to our portfolio of products and services we currently supply.
Although I have fitted alarms for myself and friends (Melcom/CPC), I am fairly green to what equipment we should be using and who are the reliable suppliers in the UK of the equipment, so I need your constructive advice please.
We aim to fit mid price range equipment to residential property, a lot of which is empty for months at a time (holiday homes). I guess the average install would be lets say half a dozen door/window contacts, 3
- 6 PIR's, 1 or 2 bell boxes and a panic button in the bedroom. Probably no more than 3 zones will be needed. All obviously battery backed up. We wont be offering central monitoring, so GSM dialler would be the ticket sending SMS or voice messages to up to six different numbers.
We also would like to offer a yearly maintenance service, so some sort of service interval timer would be great.
In my prelimary investigations, I stumbled on the Cooper Security kit ie Scantronic. I liked the look of the Ion16 panel, am I looking in the right place? your friendly advice would be very welcomed, thanks.
TIA & Regards Mark in Spain.
