Whilst there’s only two main types of intruder alarm available (wired or wireless), the differences come in the types of detection available, the grading of your intruder system and whether your system in monitored. The level of protection you need will determine the types of detection most suitable. Our expert security consultants have many years’ experience in specifying security systems for business. Along with our in-house security design team, they’ll ensure you receive an intruder alarm system that’s right for your premises.
Intruder alarm systems are graded between 1 and 4. This grading represents the level of protection required and is determined through a risk assessment on the content of your building, and your building’s fabric and structure. The grade you require is usually specified by your insurance company, or our security consultants can advise on what level is suited to your site.
