Alarm Systems

Electronic alarm systems are made up of three component parts designed to detect, determine and deter criminal activity or other threatening situations. An alarm system can detect an event such as an invasion,  re, gas leak or environmental changes; determine if the event poses a threat; and then send a notification about the event.



The component of alarm systems that detect activity is called a sensor. Here are some common types of sensors that may be used to protect your home.

  • Door and window contacts are switches that indicate the opening or closing of a door or window. Motion Sensors can detect movement or motion in a large room.

  • Glass Break Detectors are designed to constantly listen for the sound of breaking glass.

  • Shock Sensors can detect an intruder that is using force to pound through a wall, roof or other area of the structure.

  • Carbon Monoxide (CO) detectors are used to detect carbon monoxide; an invisible, odorless, colorless gas. Environmental Sensors react to the presence of water or sudden increases or decreases in room temperature.

  • Smoke Detectors are designed to detect  re.

  • A Keypad is a device that is used to arm and disarm an alarm system. Keypads are generally installed near the entrance or exit of home. If a door or window is opened when the system is activated, the keypad will immediately initiate an alarm.

The alarm system control panel is the brain of the system. It carries out the decide function by processing the information it receives from various sensors and responding accordingly. Alarm system panels have built in communicators that transmit and receive signals via a phone line. These signals are sent to a central alarm monitoring center where trained dispatchers monitor alarm system signals. In the event of a triggered alarm, a dispatcher will contact you to verify the emergency situation and if necessary, contact the police or  re station on your behalf.
An alarm panel responds to a triggered alarm by activating physical alarms such as a siren and/or strobe lights. These devices are used to scare an intruder away from your premises or alert you of a threatening situation such as a  re or the presence of carbon monoxide. The component parts of an alarm system work together to detect, determine and deter danger in your home.
A business alarm system can be set up with anything from a simple eight zone panel, to a more complex 168 zone system, to ensure that in the event of a burglary the control centre will immediately identify the exact of offices and outdoor areas that intruders have breached. Several fixed and remote panic alarms are supplied with the business alarm system so that, in case of an emergency, staff can discreetly alert us to promptly respond to the scene.
