Intruder alarms have come a long way since Edwin Holmes patented the first burlar alarm in 1858, today we have so many options and in the last 8 years we have seen so many advances in alarm technology. By far the most dramatic improvement has been the introduction of the GPRS alarm reporting panel. Where as old antiquated alarms use the copper wire phone lines to send messages back to the alarm control room leaving the system vulnerable to clever criminals who cut the wire before the enter the premises, GPRS systems use the Sim card based mobile network to report incidents. We have been designing and installing all manner of intruder alarms Brisbane residents and business’s count on to keep criminals at bay.
Australia has one of the fastest “take ups” of smart phones in the world and this also gives you lots of options with regard to home or business security. It not only possible to get SMS messages from your alarm panel but also “verify” whats happening inside your home or business using one of the many IP cameras now on the market. Intruder alarms come in 3 formats, local alarms that are designed to scare the thieves away. Monitored back to base alarms which utilize a third party to interpretate whats happening to your property when you cant be contacted and DIYMe (Do It Yourself Monitored alarm) systems that dispense with control rooms and communicate directly with you via text messaging.
Another option that is proving valuable (especially when you go away on holidays) is the interfacing of the alarm system with smoke and or flame detectors. Should a fire occur it is critical that the Fire Brigade be notified as soon as possible and precious minutes can make a huge difference to their success in extinguishing the fire. Most fire alarms are raised by neighbours or passer bys and if it is the middle of the night or you live on acreage (such as in Brisbane outer suburbs) and there is a fire and you have a smoke detector hard wired into your alarm the Fire Dept will be notified the instant there is an activation. Its worth pointing out that we have had smoke detectors wired to our workshop alarm for 8 years and have never had a false alarm.
