How do commercial alarm
systems work?

When a sensor is activated, the alarm system sends signals to a central monitoring station, the alarm control panel's hub. The system response depends on the programming settings, so it’s crucial to set those correctly.

The central monitoring station operates 24/7, so a dispatcher can immediately notice the alarm once it’s triggered. If the dispatcher doesn’t get notified that the alarm was false, they will alert the authorities so they can reach the secured premises as soon as possible.

In the case of a self-monitoring system, the alarm doesn’t make contact with the central monitoring station. Instead, it alerts the end user directly via text message or email. If you can be sure to check notifications and react quickly and regularly, this option cuts out the middleman. It lets you get real-time notifications about suspicious activity on secured grounds.

Types of commercial alarm systems

There are three main types of alarms: fire, burglary, and intrusion detection.

Every building should have a reliable fire system, not just because of legal or insurance requirements. This is the best way to protect premises and their inhabitants from hazard risks. Smoke and carbon monoxide detectors are sensitive enough to trigger the alarm, send notifications, and turn on the sprinklers as soon as they expose the risk.

A burglar alarm is the best protection from unwanted trespassing. Burglar alarms typically get activated with a code or card, after which they send out an alert whenever a person comes through the door and does not de-activate the alarm. Combining burglar alarms with strong access control will give your business the upper edge and bolster its security.

The intrusion detection systems are the most advanced alarms. They’re usually paired with a designated room from where a security operator controls what happens around your premises.

Intrusion detection systems are comprehensive and complex, so they’re suitable for large corporations rather than small businesses. A better alternative for ventures with fewer resources is modern access control, which offers advanced video monitoring and anomaly detection.
