Company info

Hello and welcome to Kent Alarms Ltd.

We are a family business set up in 1991 by husband-and-wife Steve & Julie Kent. We have been joined over the years by three of our sons, Chris, Danny, and Sam. We now have four fully equipped vans on the road.

October 2021 sees the next chapter for Kent Alarms Ltd. After 30 years of working from home off the dining table and then to our office and workshop down the garden, we have now taken the plunge and moved into commercial premises. We are now located in the Acorn Centre just off High Street in Grimethorpe. Within our premises we now have an admin department, a technical support department and a Demo area which showcases the security systems we install. You can view our Dahua CCTV showing local and live streaming images. Also on display is the award-winning Ajax wireless smart security system, this system has revolutionised home security. If you would like to visit us, please contact us to arrange a convenient time.

We offer a full 24hour emergency engineer assistance.

Verified Review

Had my alarm installed four years ago.. never any problems. Then they was a fault on it .. phoned Kent alarms as I was going away next day and was worried that I wouldn’t be able to set my alarm while I was away.. they went through some checks straight away while I was on phone and found the fault .. they came and did it straight away so I had peace of mind while I was on holiday. Excellent service from them would always recommend them to anyone. Thank you.

New alarm system and cameras

Arrived at agreed time to give a quote, same when the installation was undertaken. Were very friendly while working and explained everything about the system. Work took less than 4 hours and they didn't leave any mess. They do eat a lot of biscuits though :)
