How Intruder Alarms Deter and Detect Threats

One of the most significant advantages of intruder alarms is their ability to deter potential burglars and vandals from targeting your business. The mere presence of visible alarm systems can send a strong message that your establishment is well-protected and not an easy target.

  1. Psychological Impact: Intruders are more likely to not target businesses with visible security measures in favour of easier targets. They understand that an alarm system increases their chances of getting caught, leading them to think twice before attempting a break-in.

  1. Immediate Attention: Modern intruder alarms often come with flashing lights and audible sirens. These attention-grabbing features alert anyone nearby to the breach, increasing the likelihood of a swift response from law enforcement or security.

  1. Signs of Surveillance: Integrating surveillance cameras with your intruder alarm system reinforces the notion that your property is under constant watch. This further discourages criminals who prefer not to be captured on camera.

While deterrence is powerful, it's not always enough. That's where the detection capabilities of intruder alarms come into play. Intruder alarms are designed to identify unauthorised access and alert suitable people promptly. Here's how this detection process unfolds:

  1. Sensor Technology: Our intruder alarms are equipped with various sensors, such as motion detectors, door/window contacts, and glass break sensors. These sensors are strategically placed to cover vulnerable entry points.

  1. Immediate Notification: When a sensor is triggered, the intruder alarm system sends an immediate alert to our central monitoring station, security personnel, directly to your smartphone or directly to the police, depending on what system configuration you opt for.

  1. Verification and Response: Some of our advanced intruder alarm systems offer photo verification. This helps to verify the threat and provides valuable information to responders, ensuring a more effective and appropriate response. Alongside this photo verification, CCTV can be fitted to provide high-quality video surveillance too. 

Intruder alarms are not just standalone devices but critical components of a comprehensive business security strategy. Get in touch with the experienced team at Brighton CCTV to discuss the best way to protect your business:
