Smart Alarm Systems for business - How do they work?
Smart Alarms have the same components as a traditional wired burglar alarm such as:
However, they connect to a secure cloud server which allows you to control and monitor your system via your mobile phone, tablet or PC - from anywhere in the world.
If the alarm is triggered, it sends a message to the secure cloud, which is then 'forwarded' to your mobile phone in seconds.
If you have a monitored business alarm that qualifies for Police response, the alarm receiving centre (ARC) can determine the situation for you. Otherwise, you can contact the Police yourself after receiving the mobile notification.
Wait! What if the mains fail or I lose internet connection?
All is not lost! Your business will still be safeguarded.
In the event of a power cut or router failure, your Smart Alarm will continue to function normally on back-up batteries. However, without an internet connection, you cannot remotely control your alarm or IP cameras from your mobile app.
Once your internet or mains power is back up and running, the secure cloud and mobile app will continue to work normally.

Received a mobile notification that your business alarm has been triggered?
Can you afford to risk it?
From July 2016 - June 2017 there were 187,802 cases of 'non-domestic burglary' and a further 6,599 cases of 'robbery of business property' in England and Wales.
It only takes a burglar 8 minutes to ransack your business and leave with your most valuable assets. For some businesses, that could be retail stock and for others, it could be computer equipment that contains confidential client information - the disappearance of which could land you in legal trouble.
Those 8 vital minutes could be while everyone's out at a work lunch, or when your shift workers are occupied out the back and no one is monitoring the reception area.
Smart Alarms keep business security hassle to a minimum - so it's the ideal way to stop your premises, staff and assets from being vulnerable to a break in.
