Pyronix burglar alarms

Pyronix has a wide range of alarms, for both homes and businesses. It sells both wired and wireless alarms, as well as hybrid versions that are a combination of both.

Its anti-mask detectors (which are patented, but other brands offer similar technology) can detect if someone is trying to cover up the sensors, and will set the alarm off. 

With some of its motion detectors, you can adjust the sensitivity depending on where it sits, which is again not unique to this brand.

Some alarms come with keyfobs/tags, which allow you to set and turn off the alarm with a wireless key, so you don't need to input a Pin. 

It also has a range of dialler and smart alarms that you can control and monitor remotely from your smartphone or tablet using the HomeControl+ app. 

This means they can alert you, wherever you are in the world, if there is an issue at home. There are a few different smart security systems that allow you to do this - take a look at our smart home security advice for more information.

The speech dialler alarms also allow you to listen in to your home and talk back - useful if you've had an alert and want to hear what's going on and scare off an intruder.

All of its alarms also allow for remote diagnosis, where an engineer can check any problems so they can decide whether a home visit is required.

With some of these alarms, there are options for video streaming, so you can watch what is going on at home - as well as safety devices such as smoke sensors, CO detectors and panic buttons.
