Avocet Commercial Intruder Systems are fully compliant with the relevant European and British Standards for Intruder Alarm Systems (BS EN50131 and PD6662:2010) as well as BS EN50136 and BS 8243:2010 + A1: 2014 for remote signalling alarm systems requiring a Police response and are compliant with the Association of British Insurers (ABI) codes of practice, The RISC Authority security S9 document and the National Police Chiefs Council (NPCC) Guidelines on Police Requirements and Response to Security Systems (formerly the Association of Chief Police officers (ACPO) Security Systems Policy).
Our intruder alarm systems design and installations comprise one or more of the following elements:
Under the current National Police Chiefs Council (NPCC) Guidelines on Police Requirements and Response to Security Systems policy document, Police forces will not respond to an unmonitored alarm system unless there is first hand evidence that an offence is in progress.
An audible intruder alarm system with an SSAIB certificate of conformity issued to it may however attract an insurance premium discount and be an effective deterrent against intrusion with a discrete external siren featuring comfort LED’s to ensure unwelcome guests are aware the external siren is “live” and not a decoy or dummy.
It is also possible to connect a speech dialler to any audible intruder alarm system to ensure that friends and family are alerted to the alarms operation so they can attend and secure the premises.
