What types of intruder alarm system are available?

Whilst there’s only two main types of intruder alarm available (wired or wireless), the differences come in the types of detection available, the grading of your intruder system and whether your system in monitored. The level of protection you need will determine the types of detection most suitable. Our expert security consultants have many years’ experience in specifying security systems for business. Along with our in-house security design team, they’ll ensure you receive an intruder alarm system that’s right for your premises.

Intruder alarm grading

Intruder alarm systems are graded between 1 and 4. This grading represents the level of protection required and is determined through a risk assessment on the content of your building, and your building’s fabric and structure. The grade you require is usually specified by your insurance company, or our security consultants can advise on what level is suited to your site.

Grade 1 – Low Risk

Intruders are expected to have little knowledge of the alarm system and may be restricted to a limited range of easily available tools.

Grade 2 – Low to Medium Risk

Intruders are expected to have a little more knowledge of the alarm system and use a general range of tools and some specialist equipment.

Grade 3 – Medium Risk

Intruders are expected to be conversant with the intruder alarm system and have a comprehensive range of tools and portable electronic equipment.

Grade 4 – High Risk

To be used when security takes precedence over all other factors. Intruders are expected to have the resources to plan an intrusion in detail and have a full range of equipment, including the means to substitute vial components in the alarm system.

Most commercial premises will require a grade 2 or 3 system. Grade 4 systems are usually only specified for high value, high risk environments such as art galleries, jewellers and banks.
