Burglar & Intruder Alarms
for Commercial and Residential Premises
Intruder alarms help deter burglaries – 93% of burglars say they
avoid properties with an active, visible, quality alarm system.
Feel safe and secure
If you live in Bristol, south-west England or south Wales and are concerned about the risk of a break-in, or want to deter burglars, we can help you. We can spend the time to design a bespoke alarm system that will make you feel safer and keep your commercial property or home more secure.
Protecting your property for the long term
Each intruder alarm system we install meets the highest standards and SSAIB requirements.
Furthermore, all our engineers are fully trained and have been security screened and police vetted.
As well as deterring burglars from breaking into your property, our intruder alarm systems can also protect your property from fire. We can link smoke, heat and carbon monoxide detectors to the intruder alarm.
Easy to use on your mobile device, at home or at work
Our intruder alarm systems are very easy to use and our engineers will provide you with training once they are installed.
You can opt for a traditional manual keypad option where you enter your personal number codes. Alternatively, you can choose a key fob option, which has an added security benefit since any lost key fobs can be deleted from the panel.
Mobile apps can arm and disarm your system but also provide the ability to control third-party devices and check current alarm status from your phone or tablet wherever you are, you just need to have a connection to the internet.

Trusted and certified
Why you can trust us to install your alarms
We are certified by the Security Systems and Alarms Inspection Board (SSAIB) under their Electronic Security Systems Scheme. Their assessment covers the financial stability and operational adequacy of our business giving you confidence in us.
SSAIB certification means we can demonstrate compliance with NPCC policies on police response to security system activations. This enables us to obtain unique reference numbers (URNs) for our intruder alarm systems and therefore when a confirmed alarm is triggered a police response is requested.
The assessment by the SSAIB to achieve certification ensures that our business processes comply with relevant standards and codes of practice. This assessment includes a review of our site installations. We also have to demonstrate that we have the appropriate knowledge and skill to install and service intruder alarms.

Installing the right Intruder Alarm System for you
Before we install an intruder alarm, our security consultant will visit your premises to assess and review your requirements, as each alarm system is unique. During the site survey we will discuss every aspect of your property, contents and insurance requirements to enable us to provide you with an intruder alarm system that will keep your property safe.
In most cases your insurance is reduced once a standards compliant and certificated intruder alarm system has been fitted.
As part of the system we would always recommend that you have a bell box fitted to the outside of your property. This provides a visual deterrent showing that you have protected your home or business premises.

Frequently Asked Questions
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.
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.

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.
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.
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 or HKC and also discuss your wider security needs where appropriate.
