Hi all, I would just like to ask your advice please on which might be the best alarm solution to go for.

I'm currently renovating my 1 bed flat and want to install an alarm system with cctv (probably 2 external cameras), seeing as i have all the floor open and still yet to plaster the walls I'm thinking it might best to go for a wired system so it saves on batteries running out and I think would be just that slightly more reliable. 

 

I would also like to have some home automation at some point like remote sockets and light switches, video intercom, although I think other specialist solutions are best for that side of things, Samsung's smart things  and Lightwave for switches/sockets, not aware any other firm offering smart sockets and dimmable switches as a single solution.

 

I would really appreciate your advice on this, especially the alarm options to go for, I've read that RiscoSys2 is potentially a good hybrid option or maybe just go fully wireless with SimpliSafe or similar.

 

Many thanks in advance!!! :)

I'd also say texecom or galaxy hard wired every time don't choose wireless at all imho

Thanks for the advice, I actually ended up going with a Scantronic I-40H, decided I wanted a hybrid of wired/wireless, not installed yet, now just need to decide on which cctv cameras, HK-Vision seem to be most recommended so far.
