Intruder alarms are security solutions that guard against unauthorised entry into a building, at least, curatively. It detects such entry into a building through the use of sensors linked to places of entry like doors, windows, and even skylights . When these sensors are triggered under certain conditions, a signal is sent to the alarm, which then alerts the ARC (alarm receiving centre) and the keyholders of the building. They may sometimes come with extra security features like panic buttons and break glass detectors.
To get the most appropriate intruder alarm for your premises, you should make your choice based on these factors;
- The size of your property
- The type of property
- The value of what you’re protecting
- In line with the british standards and you insurance company
- Your budget, including installation and maintenance
- The certifications of the intruder alarm system, etc
Ordinarily, no. You don’t need any licence to install or maintain an intruder alarm on your own premises, but there if you have a commercial premises it would usually be stipulated by the insurers that you have the system Risk assessed and the the system would be graded in line with the British Standards. For instance,
You will only be able to get a police response if the system has been installed by a qualified company either SSAIB or NSI accredited and that company is approved to obtain a URN (Unique Reference number ) for your building
It is also worth noting that you should get a intruder alarm licensed by the NSI (National Security Inspectorate) or the SSAIB (Security Systems and Alarms Inspection Board, which is recognised by the Association of Chief Police Officers.
You can set up your intruder alarm to notify the police if you want to. This type of intruder alarm system will have to be a graded system in line with the british standards and installed by an accredited intruder alarm specialist. The police will have all the information about the site and and high risk equipment on site and any hazards all this information is supplied to the police prior to the site going live.
There are various ways in which you can determine if an intruder alarm is “armed”. You can scan the control panel for visual indicators including flashing LEDs, subtle vibrations, etc. You can also look at the alarm itself or contact the monitoring company (if you have a contract) to check if it is active.
This would depend on the type of contacts or sensors it uses. While most sensors detect unauthorised entries of any sort when they are triggered, some sensors are so specific that they can detect when a door is open or closed or when it is locked or unlocked. These types of sensors are known as door contact sensors.
Not in a direct sense, but in a way that definitely matters. Intruder alarms, given that most burglars wouldn’t even know your building has one until it sounds. However, studies have shown that buildings that have intruder alarms are less likely to be targeted by burglars (most of them retreat after the alarm sound).
Intruder alarm systems are complex and it is unlikely that unskilled persons would be able to effectively install one on premises. That’s why Brunel’s Fire and Security services are here for you.
Yes, you definitely can. Many modern intruder alarm systems can be controlled using a smartphone app, web portal, or special remote that comes with the system. Through these, you may activate or deactivate the system, check if it’s active or now, and even reset it if you please.
The maintenance costs of intruder alarm systems vary based on a host of factors that can be predicted before you even get one. This makes it easier to get an alarm system that would be suitable for you and your business. Intruder alarm systems with many sensors and features that require manned personnel to operate or monitor would be more expensive to maintain than others.
No. False alarms happen rarely but they do happen and it is important to recognise this so that you are aware of what the cause false alarms include
- Having it serviced every 6 months reduces false alarms
- Keeping the detectors clear of obstruction.
- Making the system provider aware of false alarms so these can be eradicated correctly.
False alarms may also be triggered by
- Human error; you may trigger a sensor mistakenly if you do not set it correctly.
- Animals and pests; it is possible for small animals to trigger it. However, most quality sensors distinguish between little animals and human intruders
- Natural and environmental occurrences may disrupt the intruder alarm system too. During thunderstorms and extremely strong winds, alarms are frequently triggered.
