Please can someone recommend an alarm company/ person?
Someone very trust worthy & reliable & not expensive?
I want them to make suremy current alarm is actually working properly, if it was tampered with & i suspect we will probably need an upgrade & possible need to move the box, so will be looking for a quote?
Really cant afford it at the moment but i just dont feel safe in house anymore so it has to be done.
The guy who originally insalled system was a complete coyboy & it cost us a fortune, we could never find him since to ask questions about it so im very weary of alarms people since, ripping me off.
Thanks a million.May 17, 2010 at 2:07 pm #7972

Hi there, Thanks for all the replies and suggestions.
I must look into it asap, still getting all the locks changed at the moment and extra onsput on.
I actually did ring eircom phone watch but they said their software is not compatible with our wiresfree alarm, so they would have to install a whole new one at the discount price on 1600 , then the monitoring is 19 a month. Putting in a whole new system is totally out of price range at the moment – how can i justify it when we only got a state of the art (supposedly) one put in 3 years ago!
We really just need to get the one we have fixed and monitored.
How much does monitoring cost usually? do other companies take a monthly direct debit. what other companies are around?May 20, 2010 at 8:02 am #94792karen19795Member
We have a wire free external alarm in our house so that potential burgulars/intruders are caught before they do any damage to your doors or windows trying to get in. It’s a brilliant system butI might be a bit biased as my husband is an agent for the company. We have the system at the back of our house so that if anyone tries to get in over our back wall an alarm goes off inside the house and you can also set it up to ring you if the alarm goes off and you are not in the house.
It’s only new to Ireland but it is huge in the UK! Here’s a link to the website http://www.easterhillsecurity.com/flexigard.html
My husbands name is Andy and his number is 086 8233880 if you would like a demonstration of the system. (We are in Drogheda, but he can travel anywhere!)May 20, 2010 at 11:59 pm #94821Taylor5Member
MaryE i wouldnt TOUCH eircom alarms, have major problems with them years ago! Willing to take you money but if you phone line goes down they dont want to know, in Dublin an engineer is with you that day but in Drogheda it can take 3 to 4 days….. in my case in Five oaks it only took 4 MONTHS to get my phone lines sorted….
Byrne Alarms are good in the business years….. maybe you just need a test on your system and to check if you sensors are working, we are having trouble with one of ours at the moment for some strange reason, dh is just going to replace itMay 24, 2010 at 12:31 pm #94874Carol McgeeMember
Paddy Lenehan 087 6383049 looked after our house and business alarm he would check it out and has never steered us wrong. Ring and get a quoteMay 24, 2010 at 1:19 pm #94879
Thanks for advice girls – rang a few of them last week.
Found out the guy who put my alarm in was never licenced but claimed to be, he is being prosecuted but is no where to be found.
God some people, like he lived in Wheaton hall with his family & seemed really genuine – Its hard to know who to trust anymore. Makes you feel like a right idiot!!
The panels (comfort) he was using were imported from the uk & not well known at all.
Seemingly because it is wireless, the other companies systems arent compatible with it.
Anyway, looks like we may have to put in a whole new system.
Have a friend of mine who use to work in alarms, trying to find someone in ireland who may be able to repair it but things not looking good.May 24, 2010 at 11:16 pm #94899Taylor5Member
oh god thats terrible… is your house wired for an alarm? I know ours was. If it is you could go to eastern electrical and price an aritec alarm, once the wiring is done to fit it wouldnt cost too much
