An alarm that will speak to you in the Irish language is now available for the first time.

HKC, who are providing the service, say it is already proving popular with parents who's children attend Gaelscoil.

The Irish company was established over two decades ago and is now growing in the UK, having entered that market in 2011.

The company has a range of electronic security products and intruder equipment.

It says their research and development team completed a translation of its SecureWave intruder alarm system into Irish.

The new system can be controlled from remote locations with an Irish language app - available on Apple devices, Android and Windows.

Minster of State with responsibility for the Gaeltacht, Joe McHugh, said: "I think this is a very positive message this company is sending out as there are Irish people all over the country and even in the UK who could use this product".

Ireland's first Irish language intruder alarm system is available for both residential and commercial customers.
