If you’re looking to boost your home security, the first thing to consider is an effective home alarm system. Designed to detect intruder presence, as well as protect both the people and physical assets within, a home alarm system, when triggered, will activate a siren and communicate an alarm signal to one of our monitoring centres. Within seconds, our highly-trained armed response officers can be deployed.
These alarm systems work by employing various sensors throughout your property. The sensors detect intruders through passive infrared devices. The passive infrared sensors that Chubb offers include microwave, digital and dual technology that is either wall or ceiling mounted. Our most popular solutions comprise of:
The passives used are dependent on the level of protection or risk rating of a particular area to be protected. Pet immune passives are also available, which allow free movement for smaller pets on your property.
Door and window magnetic contacts
Magnetic contacts are connected to your alarm system, so you’re alerted if any door or window is opened.
External beams and outdoor passives for early detection and warning
These are motion sensors designed to react when the temperature rises rapidly, meaning that if someone walks past, their body heat would signal the alarm.
The key to an effective home alarm system is the placement and selection of our various detection devices. It’s important that these are positioned to suit the environment and risk level as best as possible to ensure your safety.
For this reason, we recommend that you consult a skilled security expert who can guide you appropriately. Call us for a no-obligation FREE risk assessment on 0861 002 211, or visit www.chubb.co.za for more information.
