Intruder Alarms

Intruder Alarms

An Intruder alarm is a system designed to detect intrusion – unauthorised entry – into a building or area. They are also called:

  • Burglar alarms
  • Security systems
  • Alarm systems
  • Intrusion detection systems
  • Perimeter detection systems, etc.

Intruder alarms are used in residential, commercial, industrial, and military properties for protection against burglary (theft) or property damage, as well as personal protection against intruders. Car alarms likewise protect vehicles and their contents. Prisons also use security systems for control of inmates.

Some alarm systems serve a single purpose of burglary protection; combination systems provide both fire and intrusion protection. Intrusion alarm systems may also be combined with closed-circuit television surveillance systems to automatically record the activities of intruders, and may interface to access control systems for electrically locked doors. Systems range from small, self-contained noisemakers, to complicated, multi-area systems with computer monitoring and control.

Safe Services is an NSI GOLD approved company, and, for security systems, we have NSI GOLD accreditation for:

Security systems are fitted in compliance with BSEN ISO 9001 and NSI FSQS121.

From basic systems for small offices to complex systems for very large buildings that have many staff and varying operating hours, we can offer systems that can be fully programmed round your requirements.

Your property may not lend itself well to cabling nor may you wish to see any cables within your building. Radio wire-free intruder alarm systems are an ideal solution. Hardwired or wire-free, we can help.

Intruder alarms can be linked to an alarm receiving centre that monitors your fire alarm system 24 hours a day and summons the police service and key holders on receiving activation from the site. This can be achieved by means of BT Redcare or CSL Dual com options which also transmit signals via GSM should the landline fail. Audible-only or monitored - we can help.

Looking to install an intruder alarm system? We can offer you the complete package from design to installation with a full 24 hour call out service 365 days a year and key holder options.

Looking for an alternative service provider or do not currently have a service contract in place? We offer very competitive service contracts and would be happy to hear from you.

We also offer Businesses a Key holding Facility where we would be the first to respond to a signal from your system to allow the relevant emergency services access to your site.
