How an intruder alarm system protects your premises.

Metro Security’s NSI Gold-level certificated intruder protection provides centrally monitored, detector-activated alarm equipment individually specified to meet your site’s specific requirements – based on a risk assessment survey that also ensures localised issues are addressed.

Equipment specifications can include site sounders for deterrent purposes, while the alarm system can be interfaced with appropriate security lighting, proximity-based access control door entry, physical security measures and closed circuit (CCTV) cameras to assist with site monitoring, verification and evidential quality images for potential prosecution.

Metro Security’s 24-hour control room operators liaise with nominated keyholders and follow alarm confirmation procedures to eliminate false alarms and ensure continued police response to any verified incident, thereby following requirements of the police security systems policy in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, as well as similar requirements in Scotland. Metro’s NSI Gold accreditation also ensures that installed systems meet necessary standards requited under the same policy.

Besides the disruption, costs and insurance implications of any site intrusion, the effect on staff morale can have significant longer-term effects, while potential negative publicity among customers is a further consideration. While providing active protection against intrusion attempts, Metro’s intruder systems additionally act as a warning deterrence to others.


Which types of site can benefit?

​A wide range of commercial offices, operational premises and other trading facilities can be protected by intruder systems, providing safety for employees, visitors and on-site contractors.

These systems also importantly safeguard a cross-section of building types and the assets they contain – from commercial stock and related goods through to valuable operating systems including IT equipment vital to the ongoing operation of each business.


​Added-value attractions

​Intruder protection doesn’t have to be a necessary evil – modern security systems can be integrated with building management systems to provide extra site management functionality, monitoring, reporting and running cost savings. These advantages include reductions in energy use from heat, light and power sources, for example by interfacing proximity access control for designated staff working in specific areas out of hours.
