What Is A Security Alarm System?
A security alarm system is a way to keep your property safe using a network of interconnected components and devices. Basically, a home / premises security system is a network of connected electronic sensors that collaborate with a central control panel, which will alarm should a potential intruder try to enter your premises.
A typical security system comprises a control panel, motion / reed sensors, sirens & strobes. The fundamental goal of all home security alarm systems is to safeguard the home's entry points to provide a security for the people living in the home, as well as protect your valued possessions.
Security Alarm Systems For Home
The most common home alarm systems are intrusion and smoke detectors. Read more about them below.
Commercial Security Alarm Systems
Businesses should always use security alarm systems to keep their business safe. This will not only protect their staff but it will also protect the goods inside their business, whether it is an office, retail store or warehouse. These systems will usually be integrated with smoke/fire detection and panic buttons (available in hand held or wall mounted)
It is very common to have commercial alarm systems set up to a back-to-base monitoring company. This means that when the alarm system is activated, the notification will be sent through to a 24-hour surveillance company who will have received instruction on what to do in the case of an activation. They will call nominated phone numbers, send a patrol guard, or call the police and inform them. These services are available with a small quarterly fee.
Why Install An Alarm System?
A security system gives you peace of mind and keeps your family, workers and your possessions safe. Its main objective is protecting your premises and those who live/work there from burglary & invasion.
Other reasons why you might want to install an alarm system include:
- Save on homeowners insurance costs
- Increase the value of the property
- Allow remote monitoring on activity at the premises
- Deter criminal activities
We Take Security Seriously!
According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, break-ins in Australia have decreased from 2.4% to 1.7%. A robust security system with a motion detector may increase your chances of deterring the intruder. Besides, a burglar alarm will alert nearby neighbours, increasing the likelihood that the criminal will be deterred or even better, caught and detained. If CCTV is installed to complement the alarm, it will go a long way in helping to identify the offender, so we do recommend having these systems working hand in hand.
