“Was moving into a brand new house and had previous dealings with Lara. The system in my former house was installed 8 years previous and I never had any issues so got in touch for the new installation. The engineer was very friendly, neat and tidy. Would certainly recommend Lara after my dealings with them”

Mark DeBúrca

“After a house burglary I looked into getting a burglar alarm ASAP. Contacted Lara who were out the next day. Was advised of all options and went with the new phone app monitoring. Engineer gave great demonstration. Would really recommend for anyone looking into a new alarm.”

Elizabeth O’Brien
