Intruder Alarm Systems

Intruder alarms, also known as burglar alarms, are security systems designed to detect and deter unauthorized entry into a building or premises. These alarms use a variety of sensors and technology to detect and signal potential intrusions, typically through loud sirens, flashing lights, or notifications to a security monitoring centre.

Common types of intruder alarm equipment include:

Motion Sensors:

These alarms use infrared technology to detect movement within a designated area. Any sudden movement or change in heat signature can trigger the alarm.

Door and Window Sensors:

These alarms consist of magnetic contacts that are placed on doors and windows. When a contact is broken, such as when a door or window is opened, it triggers the alarm.

Glass Break Sensors:

These alarms are designed to detect the sound frequency of breaking glass. They can be placed near windows or glass doors to detect attempts at forced entry.

Vibration Detectors:

These alarms sense vibrations caused by an object hitting or attempting to penetrate a surface, such as a wall or roof. They are often used in conjunction with other sensors or as part of a comprehensive security system.

Intruder alarms can be wired or wireless, with wireless alarms being easier to install and more flexible in terms of placement. Additionally, many modern intruder alarms incorporate smart technology, allowing for remote monitoring and control via smartphone apps or security systems.
