Does My Business Need an Intruder Alarm System?

Although intruder alarm systems are often installed as an insurance requirement, these security systems can offer many more benefits for your business premises. By choosing the right professional security company to protect your business, your premises can benefit from a bespoke fire and security alarm system from a trusted local provider for your peace of mind.

If you are considering an intruder alarm system to help protect your premises, here are some key benefits to consider:

Peace of Mind

Having an intruder alarm system on site provides peace of mind that your premises is protected 24/7. Advance offers a range of monitored intruder alarm systems which can alert keyholders or the authorities if the alarm is triggered, giving you full visibility of any security threats.

As an accredited CHAS contractor and a SSAIB certificated company, Advance carries a mark of excellence and promotes high standards of service for its alarm systems and security services.

Choosing a company with these accreditations provides peace of mind that your installations are approved by your insurers.

Deters Criminals

The visible presence of an intruder alarm can be enough to deter criminals and prevent break-ins from happening, saving your business from lengthy insurance claims and damage costs. By clearly displaying your alarm systems alongside other security systems such as CCTV, it is likely that vandals, thieves, and trespassers will think twice about breaking into your premises.

Protects Your Staff

If you have a team who regularly work late night shifts and are on site out of hours, intruder alarm systems help to provide peace of mind that break ins are less likely to occur. This will help your team to feel protected and allow them to focus on their work without the worry of coming face to face with a trespasser.

Access control systems also work well for this purpose, especially for premises which are publicly accessible, allowing only those with certain roles into areas of your building at certain times.


All too often we are called out to business premises after a break in to install intruder alarms. The cost and hassle of replacing your assets and repairing any damage from a break in far outweigh the process of getting an intruder alarm system installed, especially when working with an experienced and friendly security systems installer such as the team at Advance. Unlike some other security companies, we won’t oversell you any unnecessary bells and whistles, and will ensure that you are getting the right level of service to suit your premises and budget.
