Types of Security Alarms

When installing an alarm system, you need to consider what areas you need to cover and what devices you will require to cover each zone. Below are some of the systems we recommend for business security.

Motion Detectors

also known as PIRs, generally cover areas of 10-11ms. They are cost-effective and cover large areas.

Reed Switches

these magnetic contacts for doors and windows are used on the perimeter of a building. When the reed and magnet separate as an intruder tries to enter, the open circuit triggers an alarm.

Panic Buttons

hold up or panic buttons are ideal in the retail sector, they allow employees who feel threatened to press a discrete button that will result in immediate police action.

Seismic Sensors

are especially important if you have a safe. These sensors trigger an alarm if they detect heavy vibrations, such as those from a drill or jackhammer.

Smoke Detectors

a requirement for all businesses, retail spaces, and warehouses. Specialised business alarm smoke detectors connected to an alarm system that immediately alerts the fire brigade.
