DIY Alarm Systems

Welcome to the Sapphire Alarms website. This website was established (1998) in order to de-mystify the design and installation of alarm systems by providing professional quality alarm equipment (the same equipment as used by professional installers) together with alarm system design and installation help and advice to the Do It Yourself sector.

Installing a DIY intruder alarm system is easy; installing it well takes a bit more forethought and patience. Before contemplating installing your own burglar alarm system you should read as much as you can about alarm systems - have a look at the How to... section of our site.

And don't forget - you can call us on 01744 757 657 or E-mail us and we will be happy to help.

And most important - once you've chosen your system and picked your equipment, we will provide help with your installation by telephone or E-mail.

Hard-wired or Wireless?

This is probably the question most asked by would-be DIY alarm installers. And the answer is of course - 'you pay your money and you take your choice'.

If you are choosing your alarm on price alone then Hard-wired is the choice.
If you are choosing your alarm on the level of security alone then Hard-wired is the choice.
If you are choosing your alarm on the ease of installation then Wireless is the choice.

Or you could always choose a 'Hybrid' system.

Whichever system you choose you will need the following major components:

  • Control Panel and back-up battery
  • Detectors
  • Signalling devices

Where to Now?

Read the 'Design Help', 'How Alarms Work' and the 'How To...' sections and work out roughly what you want the system to do and then start to pick the equipment to build your system. You can add items to your basket and review your system as you proceed. If you create an account your basket contents will be saved and can be viewed the next time you log into your account. Remember, your personal information will not be passed to third parties and will only be used by us in relation to your order.
