Intruder Alarm Installation System

The range and diversity of alarm systems available can make choosing the right system for your need quite complex. The information below is not a definitive guide, but it will help you to understand the basic differences between the main types of system on offer.

A basic system might be expected to comprise of an outside siren or bell and strobe light – enclosed in a weatherproof box – a key operated or digital control panel and a number of passive intra-red movement detectors, placed in vulnerable areas. Contacts on windows and doors may also be included.

Bells-Only Intruder Alarms system

This is generally the most basic option. If the alarm is triggered, an audible alarm sounds to alert you – or a neighbor – that an intruder has entered (or is trying to enter) the premises.

 This type of system may be appropriate for most typical dwellings. However, it depends on the location of the property, the lifestyle or nature of the occupier or the content.

Speech Dialer or Auto (GSM) Dialer System

This will be a cheaper option than having a fully monitored system. With a speech dialer, when the alarm is activated, pre-programmed numbers of your choice will be dialed and a pre-recorded message alerts the keyholder or neighbor to the alarm.

If the phone line is cut or disabled, no signal can be sent. A GSM alarm unit sends you and/or other contacts a text message. It is not dependent on the phone line.

Under no circumstances should the Police telephone number be programmed into the auto dialer. It can typically send a text to up to three numbers, its a stand alone system where there is no third-party monitoring.

Intruder Alarm Monitored Systems

The system installed may be the same as (or similar to) a bells-only system, except that – when the alarm is activated – a signal informs our remote monitoring center.

 They may confirm that the alarm is not false and, if necessary, we inform the Police or security patrol service provider for a call out. It is important to note that our monitoring center is recognized by the Police.

A unique reference number (URN) – which identified the premises – must be obtained by us from the Communication Authority of Kenya, when the system is installed. Our monitoring center is authorized and registered with CAK.
