Reliable advanced Orisec system fitted in Birmingham

The Triplex Social Club in Kings Norton, south Birmingham is a well-established and popular community venue that approached us last year when their intruder alarm system needed an upgrade.

The managers of the club were increasingly unhappy with the company that was meant to support and maintain the existing intruder alarm system. Meanwhile the alarm system itself was now old and was becoming unreliable.

They decided it would be best to have a modern intruder alarm system installed to better protect the social club and its staff which has a bar, snooker room and a function room as well as outdoor sports facilities. Our project engineer, David Harris, who is a qualified intruder alarm installer, carried out the initial free site survey and worked with the social club managers to understand their needs.

With frequent events at the venue there was often a large amount of expensive stock stored at the club so designing an intruder alarm system to keep this secure was important as well as ensuring staff were protected.

Following these discussions, we recommended a Grade 2 Orisec intruder alarm system. Orisec intruder alarm products are designed and manufactured in the United Kingdom and are only available from professional installers.

Grade 2 intruder alarm systems provide a high level of protection and are recommended for commercial sites like the Triplex Club when stock is held on site. They 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.

David designed, and then we installed, a hybrid intruder alarm system with both wired and wireless detectors fitted within the premises including the entrance and exit; foyer; lounge; office; snooker and function rooms.

Additionally, to provide extra protection and security for staff, a double push panic alarm has been fitted, which will trigger an audible alarm once pressed, whether the system is set or unset. He also added extra protection for the Triplex Social Club premises through our alarm receiving centre (ARC). Once an activation signal is sent to the monitoring centre, for example, after a detector has been triggered, the monitoring team carefully filter activations. Alerts that are false alarms are filtered out, while confirmed alerts are sent through to registered keyholders who can take quick action. The Orisec Control Plus app was also provided allowing the alarm users to set and unset the intruder alarm system remotely.

Commenting on our work, Steve Darling, a director of the Triplex Sports Association that runs the club said, “The installation was a very smooth process. All went to plan and to timescales.”

He added: “I would be happy to recommend Ecl-ips to everyone.”
