A guide to Intruder Alarms
Can Intruder Alarms be monitored remotely?
A remotely monitored Intruder Alarm is the most convenient solution. When the alarm is activated, signals are sent to a monitoring centre and the police are contacted on your behalf.
Do Intruder Alarms require monitoring on site?
You can opt for a bells-only alarm system (see above) which doesn’t require monitoring. However, for a more effective and secure solution, a monitored system is recommended and is usually an insurance requirement.
Is a bells-only system effective?
The sound of bells may well deter criminals and alert anyone in the building to their presence. However, they will not provide an automatic police response, so a monitored system is usually preferable in commercial premises.
How are Intruder Alarms activated?
All alarms have triggers and are typically activated when an electrical circuit has been broken or motion is detected.
