Alarm Systems deter theft from both internal and external sources They protect employees from unwanted intrusions
Merely putting an alarm on a door is not a burglary system. A quality burglary system is not just a single piece of hardware. It is an interlocked system designed for a specific environment - a business, a school, an office building, a storage facility, a manufacturing plant. It may simply prevent access, but more often it means detecting unapproved access and reporting intrusion in a timely manner, so that a specific and pre-defined action can take place. This could be as simple as notifying police when your facility has been broken into. It could also mean that you protect employees from unwanted entry in a not-so-friendly neighborhood.
Employees need to feel secure. A burglary system can often ease their tensions. Failure to properly protect your employees also carries a liability, one that can be reduced with the proper system. Keep in mind that burglary and intrusion protection is only one part of creating an employee safe environment. Other elements include access control, closed circuit TV and system monitoring.
How do you distinguish when an employee with a valid reason enters after hours?
Will opening the door after hours trigger a call to a monitoring station?
Under what conditions will the monitoring station notify the police?
How do you limit false police calls and the associated charges?
