Quite a lot of houses being broken into around here, looking for an alarm and have no idea. I know we won’t be getting an adt alarm as £30 a month for monitoring is ridiculous

Any suggestions?

We got a basic tiiwii kit from amazon for about £50. It’s not very high tech - it just makes a very VERY loud noise when it’s set off - good enough for a bit of peace of mind

Even better if they chucked a couple of bear traps in as well.

I purchased a Reponse wireless one from Argos about 8 years ago and its still spot on. paid about £200 back then, but it has all door/window sensors, motion sensors,easy to setup, it phones my mobile if tripped and can also be controlled by a mobile, i imagine the modern ones would be even better, would deffo get another one

Not sure if this is still relevant,  but we got broken into whilst we slept quite a few years ago,  can't remember if we were already with Norwich Union or made the switch because of the offer, but they offered us a 5  year fixed price policy which included a free alarm system, windows/doors etc. Which we still have and use today.   Might be worth asking around,  but remember the policy was pretty much the same price  as other companies at the time, alarm was certainly a bonus.  Good luck.

Get a cctv system instead. Alarm does jack shit if someone breaks in apart from upset the neighbours.

Throwing this out there then. If you found someone in your house unwanted, what would you do?

Me, I would beat the shit out of them. Wouldn’t hesitate one bit. A man has the right to protect his property.

I'm a pretty big bloke and I'd probably just let them go. Partly because I'd be bricking it, and partly because it's the wisest thing to do. You don't know who they might be. They could be proper hard cunts and tooled up even if they are smaller than you.

If it really comes to it though, I'd just do what I have to do. Whatever that may be at the time.
