Build your system
Every home is different. With just a few questions, we'll help you build your perfect alarm system.Get started
In general, when choosing an alarm system you should ensure that the ground floor entry doors are protected with a door sensor and hallways/ downstairs rooms aside from bathrooms are protected with motion sensors. The upstairs hallway should also be protected by a motion sensor. This means that our medium bundle with siren is ideal for most 3-4 bedroom homes.

Yes. Most people can install the Boundary alarm system with basic tools, we include screws and 3M sticky pads with all sensors. If installing an outdoor siren, you’ll need a ladder, as well as a drill with masonry bit. We also offer a professional installation service for those who don’t have the time or would prefer a hands-free experience.
Yes. The Boundary alarm system is pet friendly. Our motion sensors can be switched to pet-friendly mode within the Boundary app. When enabled, this will ignore motion from sources less than 35kg in combined weight. If your pet is larger than this or you have several furry friends, you can create a partial arming mode to exclude motion from the room(s) that you leave them in when you are out. You might like to add door or window sensors to this room if you feel that it is key thoroughfare you want to protect.

The Pro plan includes all of the premium Boundary app features plus: Police URN application, Professional Monitoring by Boundary’s Alarm Receiving Centre and an annual maintenance visit including battery changes.

Boundary hardware is designed with quality and longevity in mind; your subscription pays for continual feature, compatibility and security updates. It also pays for the costs of our speedy, UK-based support team, as well as cloud storage and data processing required to keep your product operating as normal.
