Intruder Alarms

Intruder Alarms The Benefits The Intruder Alarm is the backbone to any commercial Security System, it preforms its main task while the building is unoccupied and therefore is the main link to protecting your business. Our modern Intruder Alarm Systems do much more than just intruder detection, providing Panic Alarms, Access Control, Fire Alarm Integration and visual verification from the CCTV system and through camera PIR detectors. Once connected to our 24hr monitoring station it provides unrivalled security and protection for your business. Detection Without sufficient detectors the Intruder Alarm System is virtually worthless, well placed detectors allow the alarm to activate to would be threats rapidly minimising damage to your premises and stock from would be intruders. Key detectors are: Door Contact – Providing alert to a door/shutter opening Inertia Sensor – Detecting a window/door been forced open PIR Detector – Passive Infra-Red Detector, detects movement Acoustic Detector – Detects certain pitches of noise in an area Panic Button – Detects a Panic Alarm when pressed Smoke Alarm – Detects Smoke or Fire Interconnection Modern alarm systems do much more than just ring a bell in the event of an activation. Most alarm systems now act as a mini BMS system allowing managers to control the buildings security from one point of access. The alarm system can be expanded to incorporate features such as Access Control allowing the buildings access rights to be controlled via the main panel and allowing for cause and effect programming e.g. to set an area when all employees have left and then disarm the area when a new employee enters it. The system can also be interfaced to the CCTV system allowing the monitoring station to visually verify any alarm activation. Monitoring It is imperative to have any commercial alarm monitored not only to provide compliance with commercial insurance policy requirements but also to limit company downtime by ensuring intruders are apprehended before major theft or damage takes place. All our systems can be linked to our ARC (Alarm Receiving Centre) via PSTN (Land line), GSM (Cellular) or IP (Broadband). In the event of an activation the Intruder Alarm System contacts the ARC who in turn will contact the relevant key holders or guarding company alerting them to the intrusion and then at the request of the key holder (upon a confirmed alarm) contact the Gardaí. The system is also polled to ensure that the link to the ARC is functional at all times.

CCTV Systems

The Systems CCTV Systems fall into three main categories based on their video quality, Analogue, HD and IP. Analogue is the oldest of the technologies and still, the most common, cameras range from 700 TVL to 1000 TVL resolution which is approximately 0.6 Mega Pixels. HD is an evolution of analog it uses the same cable structure but different hardware and can achieve up to 4.0 Mega Pixels of resolution. IP is the newest form of CCTV it runs on a full IP computer network and can achieve images of 1.3 Mega Pixels up to 30 Mega Pixels resolution allowing detailed analysis of recorded images to be made. The Cameras The camera is the eyes of the system, the better the camera the better quality the footage. Depending on the technology used different cameras suit different applications, dome cameras are used to secure entrances or internally where the camera needs to “blend in” to the building, bullet cameras are used externally to provide overt security over the perimeter of the building and PTZ (Pan Tilt Zoom) cameras are used internally or externally where a monitoring station or staff need to be able to move the camera to view real-time events. All these cameras can be internal or external and come with IR (Infra-Red) allowing them to see in the dark. Recording/Analysis The DVR (Digital Video Recorder) for Analogue or HD CCTV or the NVR (Network Video Recorder) for IP CCTV is the brains of the system. The DVR or NVR control all the functionality of the system including the live view, PTZ control, the recording, the video analysis and if required any external viewing connections. The DVR/NVR comes in a range of formats from standalone to Server-based machines with storage capabilities of 500GB to 100TB. The DVR/NVR can also be interconnected to Intruder, Fire or Access systems to provide a seamless security management system for your business. Connectivity All CCTV systems can be connected locally via LAN or remotely WAN, the system can be accessed via PC, Laptop, Smartphone or Tablet. The DVR or NVR controls the remote connections using user names and passwords. If the site requires a system can be specified for connection to an ARC (Alarm Receiving Centre) in this case using video analytics’ or using external motion detectors the system when armed can transmit the footage to the ARC where a supervisor will assess the intrusion, login and view the live footage from the site and if need generate a warning to the intruders via the onsite speakers and also inform any key-holders and the Gardaí.

Fire & Safety

The Controls The primary purpose of a Fire Alarm is the protection of life followed by protection of property, Fire Alarm Systems range in specification from L1 systems which provide automatic and manual detection and alert throughout the building down to category M systems which provide manual detection (Break Glass Units) only. Fire alarms come in 2 key types conventional and addressable conventional systems alert to a Fire in a given area say the “Factory Floor” and have no memory where Addressable systems provide the exact location of a Fire e.g. “Address 54 Factory Floor At Rear Exit” and also maintain a complete log of alarm events. Fire Alarm systems can also be connected to an ARC (Alarm Receiving Centre) to enable key holders and possibly the Fire Brigade to respond to a fire in an unoccupied building. System Detectors Fire Alarm Systems use a range of manual and automatic detectors to detect Fire or Smoke in a building the most common detectors are: Smoke Detector – Detects Smoke using an optical chamber Heat Detector – Detects rising Heat levels in an area Break Glass Unit – Activated when the glass is broken by a person Beam Detector – Sends a Beam Across a Factory roof to detect smoke Flame Detector – Uses the visual light spectrum of a flame to detect fire Signaling The main purpose of the alarm is to evacuate all occupants safely from the building and in order to do so safely, a range of alert devices are required to meet a buildings individual needs the main types are: Sounder – Emits a high pitch tone to alert Strobe – Emits a bright red light to visually alert VAD – Visual Alarm Device, Combines Sounder and Strobe Voice Evacuation – Provides a guided evacuation alert Aspirating Systems An aspirating smoke detector (ASD), consists of a central detection unit which draws air through a network of pipes to detect smoke. The sampling chamber is based on a nephelometer that detects the presence of smoke particles suspended in the air by detecting the light scattered by them in the chamber. Aspirating smoke detectors can detect smoke before it is visible to the human eye. Aspirating systems are often used in large factories or warehouses where conventional detection would be less effective or in-ceiling voids where rapid accurate detection is required.

Extinguishers are required under HSA guidelines and insurance requirements. Fire extinguishers are active fire protection devices used to extinguish or control small fires, often in emergency situations.
