Intruder Alarm, cctv, access control.


Hard-wired burglar alarm systems

Hard-wired burglar alarm systems will generally be specified in commercial premises or for very large domestic burglar alarm systems. These systems can support a greater number and larger variety of detectors. Our System can also be designed to comply with EN50131 Security Grade 3. It comes as standard with our high security double-skin Rapier® external sounder. This is made from stainless steel and is impervious to the UK weather as well as being highly resistant to attack by thieves.

Master control panel

This is the main brain of the system, located in a convenient place e.g. hall cupboard, airing cupboard. This is usually housed in a blank box that is linked into the mains via a fused spur. This contains the power supply unit and back up battery. This would be fully programmable to suit the user’s requirements with system diagnostics and a customer remote reset facility. We would select the correct master control panel to suit your requirements and a full technical data sheet would be provided.


Remote keypad

Aesthetically pleasing, easy to use design, surface mounted or can be flush fitting in brass , chrome and a range of other finishes. This allows the system to be set and unset via a code number or proximity tag. Usually located in the entrance hall near to the main entrance door. Additional keypads can be installed on the landing or in the master bedroom, for example


Magnetic alarm contact

These are installed into doors and windows to detect when they have been opened. They are also supplied in a heavy duty form for large industrial doors.


Passive infra red movement detector

This detector is designed to detect the body heat and movement of an intruder moving around the interior of a house. These can be corner mounted or ceiling mounted and are very reliable in their operation


Dual technology movement detector

This detector is designed to be installed in a more hostile environment, like a kitchen or garage. They combine passive infra red and microwave technology to produce a very stable and reliable detector.


Internal sounder

This sounder is designed to give entry/exit tones and give a full alarm to an alarm activation.


External sounder and strobe unit

A self activating sounder and strobe light housed in a robust, tamper protected, polycarbonate housing. Usually sited on the front external elevation of the house. It is sometimes advisable to put a dummy housing on the rear elevation of the house


Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC)

Intruder alarm systems can be linked into an Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC). In the event of an intruder alarm activation a digitised signal is sent to the ARC. They will then action the alarm signal that they have received by informing the police, key holders etc.

Intruder alarm systems can be linked into our ARC via the following technologies:



This system is considered by insurance companies as a high security way to ensure that the telephone line is always monitored and that the link between the Intruder Alarm System and the ARC is in place. If there is a break in this link, then the ARC will be alerted and they will contact the alarmed building and key holders


RedCARE GSM & DualCom

These systems are considered by insurance companies as the highest security way to link to the ARC by using two technologies to signal an alarm activation. In simple terms; one way via a digital communicator down a telephone line, the second way via the Cellular GSM network. So in the event of one technology failing then the other will take its place to ensure that the alarm signal reaches the ARC.


Digital Communicator

This is a way of linking the intruder alarm system to ARC via a digital communicator. This is a comparatively low cost                                              way to send an alarm signal but depends on the telephone line always being operational

All of our systems can be linked to the Police via the Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC), see section below.

To ensure high quality and reliability, we will only specify the latest technically advanced equipment.
