Alarm Systems

An intruder alarm system is designed to detect intruder presence at your premises. When detected, a siren will activate and communicate an alarm signal to one of our highly sophisticated Monitoring centres, from where an appropriate response will be coordinated. Intruder systems can be either hard wired or wireless

 

The purpose of an intruder alarm system is:

  • To protect the physical assets and people within a premises
  • To deter crime and vandalism
  • To ensure a prompt armed response service is dispatched in response to an alarm signal

 

Commonly utilised detection devices include:

  • Passive Infra Red Sensors (PIR’s) – we offer microwave, digital and dual technology PIR’s that are either wall or ceiling mounted. Most of our PIR’s, although not all, are also pet immune, an important factor that causes false alarms
  • Break glass sensors
  • Vibration sensors
  • Seismic vault and safe detectors
  • Smoke and heat detectors
  • Door and window magnetic contacts
  • External beams and outdoor passives for early detection and warning

 

The key to effective alarm systems is the careful selection and placement of the detection devices, so as to best suit the environment and risk level. This is why we recommend that one employs the services of a qualified home security expert who is able to advise on the appropriate placement of all detection devices.
