Installing an intruder alarm system is vital for providing effective security on business premises. Worcestershire-based Cattani Esam realised that making sure you keep the system up to date is important too if you want to take advantage of the latest technology.
Intruder alarm system upgrade at Cattani Esam
We recently helped to upgrade their security by designing a bespoke wired HKC Security intruder alarm system which takes included a range of sensors supplied by UK manufacturer, Orisec. Additionally, we improved their surveillance camera coverage by installing Avigilon H4 bullet cameras.
Cattani Esam supplies leading-edge, high-quality dental vacuum suction systems, across the UK and as this means there can be high value stock on their premises, we designed a Grade 2 intruder alarm system. This included providing 12 months maintenance and support for the system.
Grade 2 burglar alarm systems are designed to combat burglars with some knowledge of alarm systems and who may have tools to help them to gain entry to the site. The intruder alarm system protects all potential entry points of a building perimeter.
Additionally, to provide added peace of mind the company has remote monitoring by our standards-compliant, Alarm Receiving Centre, which allows for the Police to be notified if required.
With an HKC intruder alarm system customers can benefit from the HKC SecureComm App, which gives them control over their intruder system so it can be armed and disarmed remotely and you can receive notifications of when an alarm has been triggered.
We installed a HKC 10270 Control Panel, as well as HKC internal and external sounders. We then installed Orisec dual technology detectors, which incorporate passive infra red and microwave sensors, in their offices, workshop and warehouse.
To provide more protection in their warehouse we also installed Orisec twin movement detectors, which expand the area that is being covered by the sensors. A Grade 3 surface mounted magnetic door contact was also fitted to maximise security.
CCTV provides added protection
A surveillance camera system for a commercial premises can provide an extra layer of security. Cattani Esam needed more cameras to ensure all areas of its property. We installed additional cameras.
The company has licences for the Avigilon’s enterprise level of its advanced video management system, Avigilon Unity Video (formerly Avigilon Control Center). The company has these via a three-year plan, allowing them to benefit from improvements to the software in a timely manner, and at a predictable cost over time.
Commenting on the installation Cattani Esam director Peter Bailey said: “The new system is easy to use and now covers all areas of our property the previous company omitted. The intruder warning and recall of the video is superb. Gives us great peace of mind.”
He added, “The installation went without a hitch the cameras were placed exactly where we wanted them without being intrusive, however visible enough to deter unwanted intruders.”
