Intruder Alarms are one of the first defenses against break-in, and their presence is an effective deterrent. In today's environment security is more important than ever before and the variety of Intruder Alarms and their installation is a complex subject.
As a starting point the installation should meet with British Standard 4737/BS EN 50131, this type of installation refers to hard-wired alarm systems as opposed to wireless alarm systems (wire free). Though more expensive than many wire-free or DIY packages on the market, they are more reliable and conform to the Association of Chief Police Officers Intruder Alarm Policy. These standards mean equipment and systems are graded dependant on the level of security requirement and full audit trail and risk assessments are to be carried out.
Citadel Intruder Alarm Systems comprise of a control panel and keypad/s, internal and external sounders, with options of vibration sensors, contacts, detectors which come in various options (passive infra red, dual technology and pet detectors), break glass detectors, panic alarm buttons, flood detectors, smoke and heat detectors - not forgetting monitoring options. Take a look at our Security System packages.
If you are thinking about the installation of an Intruder Alarm System in your home it is worth taking into account that the police response to alarm activations varies, according to the type of alarm installed. In recent years the percentage of false alarm calls caused by equipment, communication or user error represented in excess of 92% of all alarm activations nationally.
