Our core business has become the installation of Intruder Alarm Systems, 50% of which are luxury new homes from 5000 sq ft upwards. Properties of this type are fitted with full perimeter protection as standard, which gives the customer personal protection as well protecting the contents of their property. These systems also contain interior motion and smoke detection.
For those on a smaller budget ADS specify interior motion detection systems. These easy to use systems can still afford the user day and night protection of their property if required.
We recommend that our systems are connected an alarm receiving centre providing the end user with a rapid response from the emergency services in the event of a genuine activation of their system
THE GRADING OF INTRUDER ALARMS
The European Standards incorporate the principle of grading systems in terms of their security provision and classifies systems into four Grades (Grade 1 being the lowest), based on the skills resources and determination likely to be brought to bear by, criminals at each level of risk.
These Grades are based on operational requirements concerning matters such as resistance to compromise, performance and resilience necessary to defend the risk against the expected severity of attack, They influence the design of all the important components - detectors, control equipment, connections, power supply and signaling, The Grade of the system overall is governed by the rating of the lowest graded component
Note: It can be difficult and expensive to increase the grade of an alarm system once it is installed. If the intruder alarm is a requirement of insurance the grade required should be checked with the insurer concerned before installation commences.
