Smart Alarm Systems for business - How do they work?

A Smart Alarm is typically a wireless system because it is far less disruptive to install than its hard-wired counterpart. Click here to read our Wired vs Wireless Alarm comparison.

  • control panel
  • keypad
  • PIR sensors
  • door contacts
  • external bellbox

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.

Complete control of your business security via a mobile app

All you need is a secure Wi-Fi or mobile data connection and you can do all of the following from your phone:

  • Set the alarm for specific rooms or zones only in your commercial premises
  • Activate the alarm for the entire building - from any place, at any time
  • Unset the alarm with the tap of a button
  • Adjust alarm settings to suit your needs

Total control from the palm of your hand..!

4 simple settings make the little things in your work day easier, so you can focus on the stuff that matters...

  • Unset the alarm to let the cleaner in after hours with the tap of a button
  • Rushing to leave work? Forget the hassle of pin codes - leave your premises in a flash and set the alarm on your mobile app in seconds
  • Set the alarm to activate in certain zones, so your reception area is safeguarded while the late workers occupy the back office or second floor

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.

How do I get a Smart Alarm to safeguard my business?

A Smart Alarm is a complex piece of equipment. To ensure your business is safeguarded properly and your alarm won't fail when you need it most, it should only be installed by a competent, accredited security installer - like Blake's.
