Intruder Alarms

The Importance of an Intruder Alarm System

An intruder alarm system is designed to detect unauthorised entry into a building or area. It typically consists of a control panel, detectors (impact or movement), and a siren. When the sensors detect movement or a breach of a protected area, they send a signal to the control panel, which activates the alarm.

There are many types of intruder alarm systems available, including wired and wireless systems, motion detectors, impact detectors, door and window sensors, and panic buttons. Some systems can also be integrated with other security systems, such as CCTV cameras and access control systems.

When choosing an intruder alarm system for your property, it’s important to consider your specific security needs and the level of protection required. You should also consider factors such as the size and layout of your property, the type of building, and the level of traffic in the area. When we attend your property, we always carry out thorough risk assessments to help us determine the grade of system you require.

It’s also important to choose a reputable and experienced security provider who can install and maintain your intruder alarm system to ensure it operates reliably and effectively. Law Secure is Accredited with SSAIB, who audit us annually to ensure that we are compliant with the British Standards for Intruder Alarm Installation. This also means that we are able to provide police monitoring and response.

Repairs and Maintenance of an Existing System

Alarm repairs are an important aspect of maintaining the effectiveness of your intruder alarm system. Over time, components can become worn or damaged, which can cause false alarms or prevent the system from detecting intruders. It’s important to have your alarm system regularly checked and serviced by a qualified engineer to ensure it is functioning properly.

Common problems with intruder alarms that may require repair include faulty sensors, malfunctioning control panels, damaged wiring, or issues with batteries or power supplies. These issues can cause false alarms, alarm failure, or an inability to arm or disarm the system. During your service, we will check all of these components to avoid failure of the system.

If you suspect that your intruder alarm system is not functioning correctly, it’s important to contact a qualified alarm engineer as soon as possible. They can diagnose the issue and make any necessary repairs to ensure your system is functioning optimally.

It’s important to choose an experienced and reputable security company who can work with your specific alarm system and provide a reliable and cost-effective repair service. Regular maintenance and prompt repairs can ensure that your intruder alarm system provides the necessary protection for your property and assets.
