Honeywell burglar alarms
Honeywell sells alarms and security products worldwide, for both homes and businesses. The two ranges readily available for homeowners in the UK are the Home Alarm and Evo Home.
Its wireless Home Alarm range includes a few different models, such as the Quick Start and Apartment alarms, which are suitable for different sizes of house.
These alarms come with keyfobs/tags, which allow you to set and deactivate your alarm using a type of key from 150 metres away, rather than entering a number into the keypad.
The Evo Home alarm range can connect to your mobile phone or tablet, enabling you to monitor and control your burglar alarm remotely using its TCC app. This is the same as with a lot of smart security systems.
You can also connect it to one of Honeywell's smart thermostats, so that you can control the heating in your home as well as your security. You can visit our smart thermostat reviews for more information.
There is an option to buy a 'panic alarm' keyfob, to alert people of an emergency. You can also buy additional sensors that can detect and warn against additional problems, such as carbon dioxide and fire, as well as built-in cameras.
You can buy these alarm systems from DIY and online shops, such as Amazon, Screwfix or Maplin, and they're designed to be easy to install yourself.
Honeywell doesn't offer any monitoring services for these alarms, which is where a company would monitor your alarm and act if it went off.
Find out more about the different types of burglar alarms, including smart and dialler alarms (both of which contact you if your alarm goes off), to help work out what's best for you.
Honeywell Security Group sells alarms and security solutions across Europe, the Middle East and Africa, as well as other products. It does offer alarms for the home, but a large part of the Honeywell Security Group's services are for commercial properties, including businesses and retail spaces.
