Installing a commercial intruder alarm system can provide the following 5 benefits:

Safer Working Place

The Intruder Alarm System is a vital element that should be a priority for you and your business. Here’s why:

  • The visible presence of commercial alarm system deters trespassers. Therefore, you can stop fraud theft before it happens by making it obvious your building is protected.
  • If a criminal breaks into your premises, motion sensors will detect intruders. An alarm will sound and alert those in the vicinity.
  • The most sophisticated commercial alarm systems can send a signal to a nominated person or initiate a police response. The thief’s window of opportunity is narrowed.

With an Intruder Alarm System in place, you also can offer your employees a safer working place, particularly if they work late shifts or non-9-5 hours, when break-ins are more likely to occur.

Intruder Alarm Helps Deter Criminals

The clear presence of an alarm system can help dissuade someone with potentially bad intentions from attempting to bring harm to your business. Figures released by the Home Office show that 84% of intruders avoid properties with a clear Intruder alarm system in place.

Installing an alarm system is an effective way to improve security in your business. It will help deter trespassers from entering your premises. In the event that they break in and enter, the system will detect them and sound an alarm.

Instant Response

You choose a monitored alarm system, and a nominated key holder can be alerted, or the signal is sent to an alarm receiving centre. As part of the service agreement, the ARC can then alert the key holder or initiate a police or security response.

Peace of Mind When You’re Off-Site

Most intruders strike in the middle of the night, it is in the early hours when your premises are most at risk. Not all businesses can afford a physical security presence around the clock, but alarm systems can still provide protection.

With an intruder alarm system in place, you can feel confident and secure when away from your business. With many businesses closed or unoccupied with people working from home due to the COVID-19 pandemic, an alarm system can be configured to alert you in the event of a break-in, so you’ll know if there is an intruder. You’ll be able to rest easily during the hours when the building is empty. For more tips on what to do to ensure your peace of mind, check out our safety and security checklist.
