Security advice: Wireless alarm technology and its benefits to the customer

Wireless alarm technology comes of age Wireless alarm systems  have been used in the security industry for over twenty years, however penetration rates in New Zealand  are still lower than expected. With the way that wireless solutions are embraced in so many other areas of our daily lives, it is hard to see why the security market  is slow to adopt wireless alarm technology. Customers need more information  It has been incorrectly thought that a wireless alarm could possibly be  jammed or interfered with. Additionally,  it was also assumed that they were also much more prone to false  call outs than traditional wired alarms.  Again the perception was that radio waves from any number of sources could interfere with a wireless alarm system and trigger an alert. However, in spite of increased education, the penetration of wireless alarm systems in New Zealand is only around 20%. The benefits of a wireless alarm The benefits of  wireless alarm technology  is exciting.  It’s not always possible to  install cabling in a property due to building or design features. This  can lead to inadequate security alarms being installed, leaving opportunities open for criminals to exploit. Wireless technology offers a flexible alternative that can ensure that a premise is secured as comprehensively as possible. A wireless  solution is particularly useful when it comes to temporary building work. This is often a time when many locations are vulnerable to crime. Instead of leaving premises open to compromise when building work is taking place, wireless detectors attached to temporary partitions or supporting walls can be a very effective way of combating unwelcome intrusion. This would be often impossible using cabling. Battery life is an important area of development  when it comes to  wireless security. Previously wireless detectors used batteries that were expensive to buy, in addition to having a short lifespan. In the residential market in particular, customers look at the total cost of ownership involved in maintaining an alarm system. So constantly replacing expensive batteries had the potential to significantly affect the  purchasing decision. In recent years, detectors have been improved to run on lower-cost and generally available lithium batteries. This now reduces overheads and increases power efficiency, with  3 years battery life easily obtainable. In addition the cost of replacements is significantly less. Another  important feature for personal protection  are panic buttons. In the business world  a discrete wireless panic transmitter can be  clipped to members of staff to safeguard them against attacks.  If the device is activated by the employee, an alarm will sound instantly and the person at risk identified. Wireless panic buttons also have residential appeal, particularly during summer  when more and more outdoor activities are taking place. By keeping a button close to them in the garden, homeowners can ensure they are protected at all times. As panic buttons grow in popularity, so too will increased adoption of wireless alarms. A wireless alarm can complement wired systems In summary, wireless technology is more accessible than ever  for homes and businesses, but should wireless replace traditional wired systems? Ultimately the choice is down to the consumer, but it doesn’t always have to be an either or choice.  It can be  a combination of part wireless alarm, part cabled alarm that  will help ultimately help customers to satisfy even the most complex of security...

Case Study: Wireless Security and Outdoor Detection

Wireless Security Catches Surprise Thief A national power company was having considerable issues preventing the theft of copper from the bases of electrical pylons in a public reserve. On regular occasions during the day and the night the copper earthing strips were being hacked off the pylons. The concern was not only the loss of the earthing strips but that the thieves were putting not only themselves at risk of electrocution but also there was the real danger that household appliances could also become dangerous in peoples homes. The boldness of the attacks was evident as the pylons were outside the substation compound and therefore vulnerable to these attacks. This also meant that any security equipment fitted to the pylons could be damaged or vandalised during a theft and so prevent any alarm from activating. Furthermore there was no telephone or internet connection available as the whole substation was in the middle of a public reserve. This prevented the standard range of equipment unable to signal for help. Wireless Security Technology the Answer Because of these issues it was decide to utilise the latest in wireless technology detectors. It was impossible to see the device in situ and therefore vandalism concerns were no longer an issue. The wireless security detector had the advantage of being small and discreet and needed no cabling. With a range of 300m to the wireless receiver, sited inside the compound, each device was fitted inside the protective cowling of the copper strip. If the cowling was removed, in trying to attack the copper earthing strip, this activated the wireless device. The next problem to resolve was how to get an alarm signal to a monitoring centre as there were no phone lines available. A high security transmitter was utilised which signalled over a wireless transmission system to be able to alert the monitoring centre. This also was able to carry out a self check to ensure any network failure alerted the monitoring centre. The system was commissioned and tested and handed over to the client to enable them to protect the site. Success in 7 Days Within seven days the first activation of the wireless security system occurred and a security guard was sent to site at around 10 am one weekday morning. What they discovered was an associated contractor of the client attempting to cut the copper strips from the pylons. The Police were called and the contractor taken to the Police Station. Ongoing Satisfaction The wireless system has been installed for nearly three years now and in that time there has never been another attempted theft of the copper strips. The system has proved highly reliable and has never generated a false call. Wireless alarm technology can often offer a solution to a problem when standard equipment has no options. It’s well worth considering. For more information and a free client assessment Click...

Case Study: Burglary Deterrent

Burglary Deterrent using the Inferno An East Auckland restaurant was being hit by repetitive break-ins  over a two  month period in the winter months. Sited in a remote location the restaurant was protected by an alarm and called a local patrol company upon activation. However the intruders had been scoping out the premises and had discovered a large amount of wines and spirits were being kept behind the bar. They also found a handy side door not too far from the bar that meant they could quickly get in and out . By coming in hard and fast, through the side door,  they could defeat the alarm, grab $5,000-$10,000 of wine and spirits on each break in and still be out of the premises in under two minutes. This meant they were on their way well before the security patrol company arrived. The alarm response company was  unable to get to the restaurant in less than  5 minutes.  A total of 7 break ins occurred in eight weeks, and the restaurant owner was unable to stop these break ins happening. A burglary deterrent was needed urgently. Inferno Sound Barrier to the Rescue By now this was having a serious financial impact on the restaurant business. Losses were mounting and there was no answer to the break ins The only solutions being offered were more locks and more alarm detectors by local security companies. After consulting with Philip Walsh from All Round Security it was decided the Inferno Sound Barrier could be the answer to driving the intruders off the premises. The Inferno’s eight oscillating speakers and 127 db of noise is designed to plug the gap between the alarm activating and the security response company arriving. This “window of opportunity” is where most losses occur and the intruders get away with the goods. The Inferno Sound Barriers  sound generator produces a highly complex spectrum  that produces four tones in a frequency range of 2-5kHz simultaneously, and forces these tones to oscillate wildly and rapidly. The dynamic nature of the spectrum of sound renders the brain incapable of identifying and thus “blocking out” the  noise which is amplified and broadcast at 125dB, The resulting effect is almost debilitating and the ideal burglary deterrent. In other words it’s a dreadful experience that whilst leaving the intruder with no long lasting damage will certainly feel like it to the offender. Success is the Proof The Inferno was connected to the existing alarm and was installed in the bar area, adjacent to where the wine and spirits were stocked. 48 hours later the intruders returned and activated the Inferno as they entered the bar area.  Immediately the Inferno  generated  its  127db ear piercing noise and forced the intruders back out of the bar, empty handed  and the intruders  fled the premises. It’s now been six months since that attempted burglary and the intruders have never returned. To take advantage of our Special Offer on the Inferno Sound Barrier Click...
