Burglar alarm brands rated
We've surveyed 2,083 people about their burglar alarm system to find out which brands are best for customer satisfaction. Our survey results cover 14 home alarm brands, including ADT, Texecom, Chubb, Yale and Honeywell alarms.
We've rated two key types of burglar alarm; monitored and unmonitored. The first are monitored by a home alarm company as part of a service, for which you pay an annual or monthly fee. The company will then call you or alert the police if the burglar alarm system goes off.
Unmonitored alarms, sometimes called standalone or bells-only alarms, don't come with a contract. You can often buy these from DIY shops - see our section further down the page on for more information.
