An Intruder Alarm is there to detect any unauthorised entry into your business. They also naturally act as a deterrent. A burglar is usually after a quick win so they are more likely to go after properties with less security.
If that isn’t enough of a reason, look at the potential monetary loss. For instance, do you sell products? How much is that stock worth? What impact would that have to your business?
When you start to look at the figures, it’s well worth putting in an Intruder detection system.
What features should an Intruder Alarm have?
- Motion detectors – detect movement within the area it can monitor
- Shock sensors – for any entry via windows
- Alarm – which alerts through sound and lights
- Panic buttons – if you are within the building and notice a break-in you can act on it
- App – this is ideal for business owners who want to keep an eye on the business when not there or even in the same country.
What types of Intruder Alarms are there?
There are three main types of intruder alarms:
Bells only Intruder Alarm
The alarm will go off an it will make a lot of noise but it will not notify you.
You are relying on sound to deter the burglar from acting any further.
Dialler Intruder Alarm
This alarm, when activated will automatically call a pre-specified phone number.
You can choose anyone; perhaps an out-of-hours point of contact or you directly.
Smart Intruder Alarm
Like the Dialler intruder alarm, it will contact you, or other specified contacts via your app.
How often do I need to set my Intruder Alarm?
Every time the last employee leaves the building or if there are employees in the building but not in certain areas (especially if you have night worker) then you need to set your alarm.
