Domestic Intruder Alarms

Intruder Alarm Systems

South Coast Alarms are installers of wired and wireless intruder alarms covering the whole of Dorset including Weymouth, Portland, Dorchester, Bridport, Lyme Regis, Yeovil, Sherborne, Blandford, Wareham, Poole and Bournemouth areas.


South Coast Alarms offer a wide range of different burglar alarm installations to suit your needs.  These range from audible only wired or wireless intruder alarms to a range of monitored systems, which are linked to our central monitoring station.


Burglars and indeed any intruders are overwhelmingly deterred by a burglar alarm more than any other form of home security.  Preventative measures should be taken as opposed to the ‘shutting the stable door after the horse has bolted’ approach, as you are far more likely to be burgled if you have been burgled before as intruders are renowned for returning to the same properties. Break-ins are unfortunately an unwanted fact of life.  Being broken into in a residential property is obviously more distressing than to a burglary to the work place and although vandalism is rare, the loss of sentimental items can be most upsetting.


As the number one security installer in the South Dorset area, we use a combination of detection devices.  The most popular devices being the PIR (Passive Infra-Red) detectors, magnetic reed contacts, breaking glass detectors, infra-red beams, vibration detectors, microwave and dual technology sensors.


South Coast Alarms Ltd were one of the very first companies to be awarded the prestigious SSAIB Certificate of Excellence in recognition of outstanding performance in security installation, maintenance and management.  SSAIB is an acronym of the Security Systems and Alarms Inspection Board. The SSAIB is the largest independent, not-for-profit approvals body providing inspection for Security Systems in the UK and is acceptable to most insurers.  We have consistantly earned their Certification of Excellence.

Wireless technology has become much more reliable and many of the systems we install today use Texecom’s award winning ricochet wireless technology.

Texecom’s new RICOCHET mesh networking wireless technology delivers more performance than any other wireless security system.

RICOCHET enabled wireless devices receive and repeat wireless transmissions from other devices. The size, scalability and range of the entire system are extended as wireless signalling is no longer limited by point-to-point communications.


The range of a RICOCHET enabled wireless system is greater than previous systems, with multiple devices capable of relaying messages to and from even the most remote locations in a building.

Each RICOCHET enabled device provides signalling routes to and from Texecom Premier Control Panels. Should wireless connection between two devices weaken, the network will ‘self-heal’ and automatically re-route communications via alternate RICOCHET enabled devices. With more RICOCHET enabled devices installed, the greater the reliability of the system.
