Designing any security system must take into account not only the level of coverage but how the user will need the system to work for them. A risk assessment should be carried out to ascertain the appropriate level of protection.

Home security

As a general rule you must protect as a minimum the rear of the property and central points ( Hall ways ). This can be done in a number of ways  to allow the customer to use the alarm in such a way that they are comfortable with it’s operation.

Perimeter protection such as shock sensors, door contacts and glass break detectors allow the alarm system to be on while allowing the occupants unrestricted access. However, this arrangement usually requires more devices and therefore cost than using motion detectors.

The most popular method uses movement detectors with door contact on front door. A typical home would keep the detection switched on downstairs at night and upstairs isolated to allow access to the bathroom etc.. When the house is empty both down and upstairs are protected.

Our Wireless security solutions give flexibility without the need for unsightly cabling to detectors. Remember to include garages and sheds as these are
sometimes more vulnerable and can contain desirable and valuable items.

Commercial /Retail

A greater consideration to the design of these sites is required as most will require a Police or Guarding company response. With a Police response requiring
confirmation ( More than a single device triggered ). Individual areas may need confirmation detections or additional perimeter protection. Monitoring such as Digicom, Dualcom and RedCare  all have their different benefits and costs with the insurance company normally requiring an agreed minimum level. With all these considerations a Risk Assessment is essential .

We will be pleased to do this and guide you to ensure compliance with all insurance and Police requirements.
