    Frequently Asked Questions

    Q: How will a burglar alarm detect a thief?
    A:

    A Burglar/Intruder system will detect unauthorised entry and break-ins through various features within the system. A dual tech PIR sensor will detect a thief using both passive infrared (PIR) technology and microwave technology. Both the device’s PIR sensor and its microwave sensor must be triggered for an alarm event to occur. When the door opens, the contact sensors are separated, creating an alarm signal. Another detection device is vibration and shock sensor. These detect instances of sudden impact or severe vibration which activates the alarm (for example when a wall is attacked – or window smashed. The bell box installed externally on the premises acts as a visible deterrent to burglars. It indicates that the building has an alarm system installed and will sound and flash when the alarm is activated.

    Q: What are the best commercial alarm systems?
    A:

    Alarm systems are vital in protecting commercial premises. Intruder detection sensors deter, detect, delay, and deny unauthorised access, whilst a perimeter detection system provides crucial time for security teams to react to unauthorised intrusions. They can also be integrated with access control and CCTV Systems to deliver comprehensive security.

    For organisations where staff deal with the public there is increased risk of incidents, violence, and aggression. Panic and affray alarm systems reassure staff and provide assistance in an emergency ClearView work with various manufacturers for alarm systems, please see our partner’s page.

    Q: Why use an accredited/certified installer?
    A:

    NSI is an UKAS accredited independent certification body for the security systems, guarding services and fire safety sectors, in the UK. An NSI Gold approved installer ensures they have ISO 9001 approval for Quality Management Systems. Buyers and specifiers can be assured their NSI approved security and fire safety providers are reputable and trustworthy with the expertise required. Most insurers require an accredited installer. With our NSI Gold accreditation and a professional team of engineers, you can be confident that we will provide the highest maintenance and service standards to your intruder alarm security systems. You can have complete peace of mind that you are dealing with a reputable supplier who meets NSI’s standards of designing, installing, and maintaining alarm systems.

    Q: Are alarm systems worth the money?
    A:

    Having an alarm system installed has many benefits and is key to protecting your premises, staff and possessions. Not only does it give you peace of mind that your premises are protected from unauthorised entry, but it can also reduce your insurance premiums if installed by an NSI accredited company.

    Q: Can you desensitise an alarm to pets?
    A:

    Pet-friendly PIRs are designed to be pet tolerant, to ignore any changes in passive infrared (movement of body heat) at floor level, up to 35kgs in weight/mass.

    Q: How do burglar alarms signal to the police?
    A:

    In the event of an alarm activation due to unauthorised access, the signalling system will alert the alarm monitoring centre (ARC) who will confirm it is not a false alarm and then follow the procedures in place for the site. This might be calling the nominated keyholder or the police. Alarms do not signal directly to the police.
