Most residential Intruder Alarm Systems are installed as part of the clients insurance cover and are graded according to the risk involved and amount of cover required. Normally insurers will advise on the grade of system required but if this is not available at the time of their visit a fully trained surveyor will carry out a risk assessment of the property and will provide a full written specification with the suggested grade of system for approval prior to installation.
HOW IT WORKS ON ACTIVATION OF THE ALARM
An audible and visual alarm warning will be initiated both inside and outside the property, together with the option, if required, of electronic signal transmission to a 24hr Alarm Receiving Centre, frowherem , on verification of the alarm signal, the appropriate authorities, Police and key holders can be alerted to respond.
The type of signalling specified will vary according to the Grade of System required and quite often the insurance risk involved, from basic audible only systems and conventional Digital Communication up to the higher security Dual Path Signalling Systems via BT Redcare or Dualcom, with secondary back up signalling via the GSM network in the event of a telephone line failure.
If the alarm is not switched off by an authorised key holder within 20 minutes the audible sounders will automatically cut off and re-arm.
