The most entry level alarm system, audible only alarms alert staff of potential threats by triggering an external bell and internal sounder. This type of system relies on motion detectors to identify danger and doesn’t send any alert other than its sounder and/or flashlights at your specific business location.
Audible alarms require manual deactivation and depend on either you or passersby to alert the police and take action. Once the alarm is activated, the sound may then ward off intruders and is, therefore, an important deterrent to protect your business. This type of system could be an ideal option if your home is close to your business or your business is based on a busy location with regular footfall.
Both wireless and wired alarm systems are available for audible only alarms, as well as hybrid systems. Wireless alarms use radio frequency or wifi to connect the sensors wirelessly. This option offers more practicality and less disruption in terms of installation. Wired alarms, on the other hand, rely on cables to connect to a main unit.
