Intruder alarms can act as a deterrent to those people trying to gain access to your property unlawfully. They come in wired or wireless forms, and sometimes a mixture of both.
Having a home alarm system can vastly reduce the chances of being burgled and gives peace of mind that your property is protected when you are not there or when you are asleep.
Wireless Intruder Alarms
Advances in recent years mean that wireless alarm systems can now be installed quickly and with minimal or no cosmetic damage to your home. Battery life has been considerably improved and in many cases most devices not require a new battery for up to three years. Wireless alarm systems are normally installed within one day for an average 3-4 bed property.
Wired Intruder Alarms
In almost all cases, we would first determine if it was feasible to install a wired alarm system. If you are at the stage of redecorating or refurbishing your home and are considering upgrading the security system, then a wired alarm would be a wise choice. Once installed, a wired system will require less maintenance and only contains one battery (for the main panel in case of a mains failure). However installation time can sometimes be up to two days for an average 3-4 bed property and will require flooring to be lifted in some areas.
Intruder alarms for business
Not only can Strike Security install alarms systems for your business similar to the home alarm systems above, we can also integrate other systems such as the CCTV or lighting into one IDS (Intruder Detection System).
Examples of how we can programme the systems to work together include:
- Triggering a CCTV camera to turn and zoom onto a particular area or part of a fence line
- Send a signal to the access control system so that for example, once the alarm is unset the main entrance doors will open automatically.
- If the alarm is triggered, a notification can be sent through the CCTV app, meaning the end user only has to use one app to monitor all of their security
All our systems come with a 12-month warranty on parts and labour, which you may also complement with one of our maintenance packages.
