Self Monitored System
Our entry level package is a self-monitored intruder alarm. This type of alarm will allow you to access the system to set, unset and perform other user functions from an app on your smartphone or tablet while also receiving notifications in the event of an alarm activation or alert. These systems rely on your home internet so any disruption or loss of internet (provider issues, power cut etc) return the alarm to a ‘bells only’ system. Our packages have a simple monthly cost which includes the maintenance of the system and access to our engineers and technical support.
Professional Monitored System
The next step up would be to add professional monitoring, while also having the smartphone or tablet App access. The alarm signals and the system internet connection are provided via a roaming SIM within the control panel. This removes the reliance on your home internet meaning even in the event of a power cut the alarm has a 12 hour battery back up including the communications. As with self monitoring our packages have a simple monthly cost which includes monitoring, maintenance of the system and access to our engineers and technical support.

Frequently Asked Questions
What grade of alarm do I need?
The Security grade is a measure of the resilience to outside influences and to attack by criminals.
- Grade 1: intruders are expected to have little or no expertise.
- Grade 2: intruders are expected to have more knowledge and some specialist equipment.
- Grade 3: intruders will have both comprehensive knowledge and portable electronic equipment.
- Grade 4: intruders have expertise, access to good equipment and planned intrusion.
The grades are designed to help people decide which security system they will need. An insurance company may not insure your asset if it is not guarded by at least a Grade 2 system. You should always check with your insurers to see what grade requirement they will have for your business. Clients who require proper security for their homes will choose to fit a minimum Grade 2 system.
All JB-EYE systems are installed as Grade 2 minimum and our traditional wired systems can be upgraded to Grade 3 with minimal change and therefore cost required. Grade 2 is the maximum grading that any wireless intruder alarm can achieve.
Does my insurer require me to have an alarm?
Your insurance company may require you to have an intruder alarm installed depending on the risk level of your property.
They may also require that your alarm system is installed and regularly maintained by an NSI Gold approved company and they may ask for documentation to confirm the alarm has been installed in line with their requirements.
You may be entitled to receive a discount if your intruder alarm meets your insurer’s requirements.
Check with your insurance company when you apply for or renew a Policy to avoid losing out. If you are using an insurance broker to arrange your insurance, make sure they check this for you.
How simple is the system to use for my family?
Each family member you wish to use the alarm is issued with a JB-EYE fob. To set and unset the alarm they simply present their fob to the keypad.
How do I know my family are using the alarm properly?
We can set up automated emails that will not only tell you when the alarm is set but also by which family member. You can see easily at a glance when your family members are entering and exiting and have the reassurance of being notified when your alarm is set.
What are the benefits of professional monitoring?
A sophisticated 24/7 remotely monitored alarm provides the highest level of security for your home at all times. An audible warning device (‘bells only’) simply sounds, relying on anyone in earshot to take appropriate action.
Alarm monitoring services arranged by JB-EYE are also NSI approved, and meet stringent security and business continuity requirements, ensuring resilient comprehensive 24/7 monitoring of your home.
Alarm Receiving Centres (ARCs) can verify any alarm signals, filtering out identifiable false alarms, and notify accordingly the Police, an appointed keyholder and/or the householder.
How quickly can i get support for an issue?
Office support is available 0900 – 1630 Monday to Friday, in many cases simple issues can be resolved over the phone or by email.
