Alarm Systems

Our highly experienced technology consultants develop security, fire alarm, audio-visual system, and communications infrastructure solutions that address the client’s security, safety, and technological needs.

An automatic alarm system is far superior to the basic manual alarm system. It allows for 24-hour coverage, regardless of whether the client is present at home or the office. Once a sensor is triggered, the signal is received at our National Command & Control Centres and a mobile response team is dispatched immediately.

The automatic alarm system is triggered from a variety of sensors, such as magnetic door contacts, window vibration sensors and infrared motion sensors.

Other features of the automatic alarm system include:

  • Control panel
  • Transmitter
  • Exterior siren and strobe light
  • Backup battery
  • Wall keypad for arming and disarming
  • Option of wired or wireless sensors

A survey must be conducted to determine the number and type of required sensors.

A manual alarm system is a basic ‘push and alert’ system. Once the alarm is activated manually by pressing a fixed or wireless remote button, our National Command & Control Centres will receive the alarm activation and dispatch a mobile response team to your home or business immediately.

The basic alarm system has the following features:

  • Three panic buttons, wired directly to our transmitter
  • Optional remote button available on request
  • Additional panic buttons
  • You will only be charged a monthly fee for the Mobile Response

We provide manually operated panic alarms with a siren for local alerts or a silent connection to radio transmitters with mobile response teams.

Fixed or wireless panic buttons are normally installed in selected locations of the area to be secured. A local audible siren and a transmission unit will notify the neighbours or people nearby of distress in the area. Subsequently, an electronic radio signal is sent to the National Command & Control Centre for prompt action.

We offer a broad portfolio of fire alarm systems for accurate, reliable and quick fire detection. Our state-of-the-art systems help protect office buildings, warehouses, lodging establishments, educational facilities, retail stores and many other types of facilities throughout the East African region.

Our automatic smoke, heat, gas or combined sensors are installed in a location that allows for accurate detection and promptly activate an audible alarm. With strategically placed break glass switches that are connected to an alarm, anyone who sees a fire can break the glass, which will instantly activate an alarm.

Automatic systems are connected to sensors that are linked to a control panel that will activate an alarm and automatically initiate countermeasures—such as a sprinkler system—for quick and effective fire control.

A smoke screen security system protects against burglary and criminal damage by releasing thick smoke that conceals valuables by blurring the vision of the intruder.

The immediate release of smoke will confuse and shock any intruder or burglar, leaving them no choice but to retreat from the property even before they can attempt to steal anything. Smoke screen security systems are highly effective in stopping a burglary before it occurs.

These systems are beneficial for both residential and commercial properties.

Our intruder alarm systems are designed to detect intrusion or unauthorised entry into domestic and commercial properties. This acts as a pre-emptive measure that provides an early warning of a potential threat.

We also provide 24/7 monitoring and a National Command & Control Centre that will dispatch mobile response teams and call property owners in the event of alarm activation.

The most basic alarm consists of one or more sensors to detect intruders and an alerting device to signal the intrusion.

Basic features include:

  • Main alarm panel to arm (switch ON/OFF or disarm) alarm system
  • Motion sensors to detect unauthorised movement
  • Door contacts to detect opening of secured doors
  • Vibration sensors to secure windows (and in some cases walls) against forced physical entry
  • Siren/flasher unit (sound)
