Intruder Alarm systems, most commonly referred to as ‘burglar alarms’, are used in homes and businesses to deter and detect intruders. Boden Fire and Security design, install and maintain a range of intelligent systems for all sizes and types of properties. We are also able to take over existing systems in order to upgrade them to current specifications.
Planning and Design
In order to form a detailed understanding of how an intruder alarm system could benefit your home or business, a Boden engineer will conduct a site visit to assess exactly how the building is operated and identify the key areas for protection. They will then plan and design a fully customised system that will work to provide adequate protection for your property. There are 4 grades of Intruder Alarm Systems which are formed by anticipating the level of intruder knowledge and threat. A Boden engineer will be able to offer advice as to what grade of alarm is best suited to your property to design a system that works in accordance with this classification.
- Grade 1 Alarms: Suitable for low risk areas or where intruders are unlikely to have knowledge of the building.
- Grade 2 Alarms: Suitable for low to medium risk areas, or where a level of knowledge or the threat of a weapon may be anticipated.
- Grade 3 Alarm: Suitable for medium to high risk areas, or where intruders are anticipated to have good knowledge of the property and or possess dangerous tools or weapons.
- Grade 4 Alarms: Suitable for use in high risk areas, where intruders are expected to use intelligent tools and knowledge to try to enter the premises.
Boden Intruder alarms can include interfaces for detecting power failure, floods, air con-failure, lone man working, freezer failure and panic alarm activation. Depending on the type of premises, it may be beneficial to have these interfaces linked into the Intruder Alarm to provide accurate threat detection specific to the use and purpose of the site. These interfaces can activate localised alarm notifications, or can be linked to the appropriate external response body such as the Police or site owner via our intelligent monitoring system.
