High-Tech Home Protection
With Allcooper, you'll receive a reliable, wireless or wired Alarm System that you can depend on, thanks to its intelligent way of working.
Our Home Alarm Systems are simple to operate and include all the components needed to prevent your home from becoming a target for burglars.
How do Alarms Work?
Your Home Alarm is made up of a range of devices, all connected to a control panel. This is what we call "the brains of the system" and is usually installed somewhere out of sight, such as under the stairs or in the attic.
Devices such as the Bell-Box, Motion Sensors and Door Contacts are connected to the Control Panel either wirelessly or wired via alarm cables.
What happens when they 'go off'?
If triggered, Burglar Alarms that are ‘audible-only’ simply sound an audible alarm. If you aren't at home, it means you are entirely reliant on a neighbour or passer-by calling the Police.
Adding Home Alarm Monitoring to your system guarantees a response from an Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC).
The ARC will monitor your system 24/7 and notify you immediarely if your alarm is triggered when you're not there.
The ARC can also call persons nominated by you (keyholders) and the Police. if you specifically require Police Response).
Monitoring is optional, but entirely worthwhile when it comes to your peace of mind.

Smarter, Wireless Systems
Traditionally, each sensor in a Wireless Alarm System sends signals directly to the Control Panel (the brains of the system).
So, if there is any issue with the signal from a sensor, it can cause missed activations and problems with reliability.
In our recommended systems, the signal ‘hops’ from one sensor to the next until it reaches the Control Panel. It means, if the signal between two devices drops out for any reason, it will automatically re-route via another sensor to ensure signals are consistently received.
Are they simple to use?
Yes - setting and unsetting the system is simple and can be done in a variety of ways. The traditional method is done by entering a code into a Keypad to set and unset the system, however our alarms can also be controlled using Key Tags and Keyfobs, in a similar way to how you might lock and unlock your car.
Controlling your system via an App
Our user-friendly App gives you remote control of your alarm system, wherever you may be.
Forgotten to set your alarm? Using the App, you are able to check the status of you system and remotely set the system, saving you time and hassle.
The App also delivers push-notifications and features an 'at a glance' timeline, showing past and programmed events in a simple format.
How much does an Alarm cost?
Every home is unique, and therefore the total cost of an installation is dependent on the size of your property, level of protection recommended and any specific preferences you may have.
In our experience, a basic, audible-only Allcooper Alarm System starts from approximately £650.00 including VAT.
The best way to determine how much a professional system will cost is to arrange a visit and quotation from one of our experienced Home Security Advisors. This service is free of charge, and our quotations are no-obligation.
It is also worth considering that there are many ways you can expand on a home alarm for more comprehensive home security. Take a look at our CCTV, Outdoor Lighting and Fire Detection products.
