While Honeywell burglar alarms can be purchased as monitored alarms from independent retailers, the central monitoring services aren't supplied by Honeywell directly.
The monitoring contract will be managed through the independent retailer, who will also install the alarm in your home. Our review is for Honeywell's unmonitored alarms, not the monitored ones.
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.
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's Home Alarms and Evo Home alarms are wireless, with the latter having smart capabilities as well (see more below).
The Home Alarm 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 key fobs/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.
As well as the usual sensors you get with an alarm, you can also buy ones that can detect and warn against additional problems, such as carbon dioxide and fire.
The Evo Home alarm also comes with an option to have a built-in camera, allowing you to actually see what's going on in your home. In addition, there is an option to buy a 'panic alarm' key fob, to alert people of an emergency.
