What is an Intruder and Hold up Alarm System (I&HAS)?
An intruder alarm is a system designed to detect intruders and provide protection against burglary and property damage as well as personal protection.
A Hold up Alarm is normally installed as part of the intruder alarm system and provides the user with Personal Attack Buttons (PABs) or panic strips to create either an audible or silent alarm. Silent alarms are used only when another person, perhaps a security team, or Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC) is alerted.
There are three main types of intruder alarm system:
- Bells only; local sounder(s) at the property
- Keyholder response; an Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC) receives messages from the system and then calls nominated persons for alarm and other fault conditions
- Police Response; conﬁrmed alarm signals are reported to the Police by the ARC
Intruder alarm systems are available in both wired and wire free options and even a mixture of the two (hybrid system). There are a range of detectors including motion sensors, magnetic contacts, shock sensors, seismic detectors and break glass detectors. These options allow great ﬂexibility to provide systems that are designed to minimise false alarms and allow maximal detection in all vulnerable areas and potential entry points.
An intruder alarm can be a stand-alone system or can be part of a wider security strategy for premises.
