Why do I need a burglar/intruder alarm?

The key benefits of installing an intruder alarm system are that it will protect your property from theft and vandalism; increase the
likelihood of police apprehending criminals; lower your insurance premiums and provide you with peace of mind when you’re away from home or off-site.

How does an intruder alarm system work?

An intruder alarm system consists of a series of electrical components that are connected to a property. Via sensors and contacts, they detect movement or the opening of doors and windows, after which a loud alarm is produced to alert those nearby of the unauthorised entry.

How will you support me if my alarm system fails?

If your alarm system fails one of our engineers will be with you in under 4 hours to get your system working again. They will endeavour to make an on site repair. Sometimes they may need to replace certain equipment if it cannot be repaired on site, should this happen our engineer will ensure that he does not compromise your system and leaves it functioning.

What are intruder alarm grades?

Intruder alarms are categorised into 4 different grades, based on their levels of performance (such as functionality, reliability and durability). Security Group can fit either Grade 2 or Grade 3 intruder alarms which are both fully monitored systems and will protect multiple entry points. However, the grade of alarm you require will depend on your risks associated with your property, for example its size, structure and location as well of the and the value of business assets or personal possessions, such as electrical goods and jewellery.
If your property is considered high risk then we will recommend a grade 3 alarm system because we will have assessed that it will be targeted by burglars who are expected to be conversant with the alarm system and have a comprehensive range of tools and portable electronic equipment. 

I have an outdated burglar alarm system, how we will you help me upgrade?

We will take the time to survey your house or premises to ensure that we can provide a modern intruder alarm system that will meet your needs and the risk level of your property or business. We will show you the benefits of the main systems we install from Orisec and also discuss your wider security needs where appropriate.

What is a unique reference number (URN) and how will it help me?

Security Group is registered with a certification body, the SSAIB, which means we are able to obtain a URN from the Police for your premises. We will notify our standards compliant ARC of your URN enabling them to identify your premises if any alarms are triggered. If it is confirmed that the alarm is not false then the ARC can inform the police.
