Old, Rusty, Unmaintained? Get a new Bell Box!
We’ve said it before, but happy to repeat – an old-fashioned and/or rusty one tells the burglar that this alarm is probably not working and will almost definitely not ring to alert anyone of an intruder. Although the Police regularly state that burglars avoid properties with a bell box alarm, many do target properties with a rusty installation system.
What are Bell Boxes?
Are audible, electric devices. When activated it makes a buzzing noise, alerting that someone is trying to break into a house or office. This is also a great, more obvious way of showing potential burglars that there is security in your house or office. Old, rusty, and unmaintained bell boxes do not turn away burglars as much as newer models do!
