Designing the Best Intruder Alarm for Your Premises
If you want to protect your premises from unauthorised access, both during and after hours, then you’re going to need an efficient intruder alarm installed. The right alarm system will give you plenty of customisation options, automation, and can even link into your other security solutions. If it’s time for a new installation or an upgrade, then the following are some points that you’ll need to consider when designing your system.
How Large Are Your Premises?
Size matters when it comes to your physical property and the efficient placement of an intruder alarm. Some businesses feature multiple access points where sensors need to be installed, and depending on your type of business, you may want to have an active alarm that still allows regular access for authorised employees and visitors. Size is something that your alarm consultant from ESP Security will discuss with you when designing your system.
Monitored or Unmonitored?
A monitored intruder alarm will connect to an action centre where triggered alarms can lead to a staff notification, and possible security company or Garda call-out. Generally, an isolated location will benefit from a monitored alarm, but it can become necessary to use a monitored alarm if you run a critical business or if the property and contents on your site are of significant monetary value.
Integration with Other Security Systems
In addition to an alarm system, you may also wish to make use of an access control system, and of course you will also have fire alarms installed on your site. There are options to integrate your intruder alarm with your other security and safety systems, allowing for a seamless experience for authorised personnel who are accessing your site. With access control, staff and visitors won’t need to disable an alarm system, which makes things more convenient with your day to day operations. Your intruder system can also be linked to a fire alarm system for monitoring and for automatically opening emergency access points when a fire or smoke alarm is triggered. With an intelligent control panel, you can even have full on-site visibility for security or law enforcement responders in the event that an alarm is triggered.
It should be clear at this point that there are plenty of options and a number of considerations to make when designing your intruder alarm with ESP Security. You will have the opportunity to work with leading security specialists that can design the perfect system to meet your needs.
