Burglar alarms are a standard yet effective way of preventing crime in your business. Our systems are designed to be more than a typical motion-sensor alarm and we can offer a wide range of systems, from a simple bells-only to a fully monitored alarm with connections to our monitoring station around the clock.

Wireless alarms are the latest in intruder-prevention technology. These modern systems can be installed into any premises with little distruption to your business and can have up to hundreds of individual wireless devices working together to create a solid mesh network.

We also offer HD CCTV systems with wireless monitoring via smartphone apps. This allows you to personally control your cameras and quickly access the images on your premises at any time of the day from anywhere in the world. Not only can this be effective should you fear intrusion, it can also be beneficial should you be the unfortunate victim of a claim against your business on accidents and other customer scams.

R Security Alarms can install smoke cloaks into your premises too. This may be particularly appealing to businesses hosting expensive goods (such as jewellers and electronics stores). Should your business become intruded upon during business hours, activation of a smoke cloak could be key to protecting not only your products but the staff as well.

If you are concerned about internal crime by members of your staff, then access control may be an option for you. Our engineers will install access control onto any area that you see fit and instruct specific staff members on how to use the system. You then control who has access to these areas so you can control the flow of staff at any time. Should you become concerned about staff members’ behaviour, R Security Alarms will reset the system and issue new access codes and keys, giving you peace of mind within your own workforce.
