Well under £500 for a wired system - more like £250, bearing in mind there's
no need to alarm the upper floor at all unless there's a flat roof nearby.
Just fo the perimeter and a couple of the downstairs rooms, that's
sufficient. Make sure it's NACOSS.
I had an alarm fitted by an alarm co engineer as a Homer. Works for a major
alarm/security company. He charged 300.
Fitted 2 keypads, 2 PIR's, 3 sets of door contacts and a window shock sensor
in a 3 bed end of terrace.
Its not the parts you pay your money for though, its the time taken to fit
it and do a decent job of hiding wires etc
Thanks for the sound advice Alex. I went for the Texecom Veritas system and
the parts came to around £150 - our sparks has fitted it - but we have yet
to commission it - not looking forward to that - the installation manual
isn't the most helpful for non-alarm pros :)
