Powermax Product Discontinued

Visonic have discontinued production of the excellent wireless Powermax/Powercode range of control panels.  Over the next year sensors will become increasingly difficult to source should they need to be replaced for any reason.

Many of our customers have a Powermax wireless alarm system, some installed for many years.  The Alarming Man is prepared to replace their systems with the latest PowerMaster version at preferential rates. We recognise customer  loyalty and this is our way of showing our PowerMaxComplete control panelappreciation.

Those with a Powermax Alarm should consider the implications and, if in the Manchester area, may wish to call for an estimate.

The Alarming Man is recognised by Visonic as a Gold installer, so you can rely on sound advice.

Gold stolen

Recently called at a house who had a burglary last week.  The feeling is that the property was targeted and only gold jewellery was stolen. The alarm had a problem and been out of action for a few weeks.

A few days later a house a few doors away was subject to a burglary and again the only gold jewellery items were stolen .  This property did not have an alarm.

If monitored alarms with video verification had been installed, not only would the neighbours have been aware of intruders, but so would the owners and alarm receiving centre.

Contact The Alarming Man to discuss sophisticated, not complicated, modern wireless alarm systems.

Another alarm that failed to protect

A Romiley home was inadequately protected when a wired burglar alarm was ripped off the wall by burglars.  There was extensive damage when the control panel was removed from the hall wall leaving plastering and decoration repairs.  The burglars ransacked the house, stole various items and a Mercedes vehicle.

The tragedy here is that 3 months previously there was a break in following exactly the same pattern but the the burglars were disturbed and took nothing.  The  wired alarm panel was replaced in exactly the same way and plastering repaired only for it to be repeated.  To The Alarming Man there seemed little point in repairing the old wired burglar alarm as the coverage and placement was inadequate.  Instead a fully monitored Visonic wireless burglar alarm was proposed but the owner chose not to take this route.  Now, instead of being notified within seconds of an alarm activation from a hidden alarm, the owner may find he suffers a similar fate in a few months!!.

We recommend everyone reviews their alarm and replaces outdated technology or upgrades existing modern security systems.

Burglar Alarm Failed to Protect

A Wired burglar alarm failed to Protect a Bramhall home where burglars ripped alarm sensors and keypad off the wall and, despite the external siren making a noise, the burglars ransacked the house and stole various items including jewellery and a vehicle.

There seemed little point in repairing the old wired burglar alarm as the coverage was inadequate, instead a fully monitored Visonic wireless burglar alarm installed by The Alarming Man providing greater protection was installed. Now, within seconds of an alarm activation, calls are made to appropriate people.

We recommend everyone reviews their alarm and replaces outdated technology or upgrades existing modern security systems.

Thieves smash CCTV alarms to steal cars from a home in Romiley

BMW and Vauxhall worth a combined £33,000 taken from outside a house in Romiley

Thieves smashed up security measures including CCTV to steal more than £30,000 of cars from a Stockport home.

The raid took place at a house on Barrack Hill, Romiley , some time between Saturday at 4pm and Sunday at 5.30pm.

Burglars smashed open a patio door at the back of the home as well as the CCTV and alarm boxes inside and out.

They then took keys to a £25,000 BMW 135 and a Vauxhall Corsa worth £8,000 before escaping in the cars. An X Box and games for it were also taken.
