02 Aug Alarm system options for commercial properties
Imagine that sinking feeling that always comes along when you tell yourself you left the house without locking the back door. It opens up a whole world of worries as you wonder about what valuable items could be on show to opportunists right next to an open window or unlocked back door.
Protection and convenience
That may well seem bad enough to most of us, but what happens if you think you might have left the door unlocked on your giant warehouse? For that proper peace of mind to stop you worrying about the state of your commercial property whilst you catch some hard earned rest, what alarm systems offer you the best protection and convenience?
How much you are looking to splash out will likely depend on what is inside your premises of course, and if you are running a business which relies solely on produce stored inside your location, something reliable and offering as grand a deterrent as possible should be on your list.
For the old-school leaners amongst us, bell alarms are still a popular choice. Unlikely to break due to any electrical fault that newer, digital versions may occasionally find themselves susceptible to, bell alarms emit the kind of noise most of us would run away from. Let us hope any intruders feel the same way.
Monitor your business 24/7
For extra levels of security however, it is viable to get hold of more sophisticated alarm services that can be monitored from a remote location every second of every day, so you don’t have to wait until the morning to find out who has been sniffing around your premises. These can cost as little as £200 extra, with additional fees payable on top to have somebody else monitor it for you; saving you the time which you would no doubt rather be spending on your business.
Wireless alarm systems are also a popular choice for many who don’t just want to trail a thousand cables across their warehouse floor. With impressive steps taken towards reliability for these systems in recent years, they offer a suitable solution in case you think you may expand your space in the future, as these can easily be slotted in rather than ripping the wiring out of the floor and starting again.
There are a few good options to choose from, and each will have merits which will suit certain people. To find out which option is right for you, call us on 0800 9788 168 or 0113 8941968 today to chat to a member of our team.
