Perimeter Security System
With a full perimeter security alarm system you are able to provide protection for your family while they are home. The system requires a detection device to be installed on all doors, windows and openings, or beams installed across a number of these. If an intruder breaks these beams or activates any of the detection device, the alarm system detects this activation and activates the audible alarm and strobe. If the alarm system is monitored the 24hr monitoring station is also advised and they will notify the appropriate contact.
Internal Security System
The internal security system is the cheapest form and provides protection of your property when you are not at home. This involves a number of detection device s being installed though out the premises so as to detect if an intruder has gained entry into the premises. If any of the detection devices are activated the siren and strobe will activate and if the system is monitored the monitoring station will also be notified. The monitoring station can also determine which device or devices activate and with training an operator can determine very easily if a break in has occurred and even where it has happened. Eg main bedroom, games room, passage , family room and can track the intruder through the premises.
Movement Detector – or more commonly called a Passive Infra Red (PIR) this device will activate if there is heat and movement, which can be an intruder, a pet moving about, a breeze through an open window and can also be an open fire. The most common and least expensive form of detection.
Reed Switch – are a magnet and a small reed (contact) that when the magnet is moved away will activate. These are commonly used on doors and windows.
Beams - are a combination of a transmitter and a receiver that sends a signal between them in the form of abeam. This can be a single beam, twin or quad beam and can operate over a few metres across a door or window or can operate over hundreds of meters to protect a large yard. These need to be line of sight between the transmitter and received and can be adjusted so that birds can fly through the beam without activating it while if an intruder walks through the beam/s then they will be detected and the alarm activated.
Hold-Up buttons –is a button that when pressed will activate the alarm and if monitored will contact the monitoring station. These can be single buttons or to reduce the chance of false alarms the best are dual buttons that require both buttons to be activated at the same time to activate the alarm. Dual button are mandatory if you want police to attend.
Smoke Alarms - Smoke alarms can now be connect to security systems that if the alarm system is monitored can provide early notification that smoke is present in the premises. Smoke alarms MUST be cleaned regularly.
Industrial Alarms – anything that you require notification that a fault has occurred can be connected and monitored. These include gas, water, power, chlorine, temperature.
