The differences between home and business alarms

When it comes to alarm systems there are two main types: home and business. Over the past few years, the features on both have become very sophisticated however, there are still some differences between them.

Generally, business alarms are more complex. When it comes to security often the needs of a business are more complex than those of homes. Business premises are normally high-traffic areas that could be more attractive to burglars than a house. They may also require more safety measures on top of their alarm system such as video surveillance and controlled access fobs to monitor movement throughout the building. Businesses also require surveillance not only for external areas of the building but also internal areas.

Unfortunate and unexpected circumstances can occur at any time and you don’t know when you’re going to need information. Businesses require their CCTV systems to record many different areas of the building 24/7 due to the high traffic activity in the facility. Therefore, professional alarm systems generally have higher storage capacity.

Residential areas often have security measures such as a neighbourhood watch programmes to monitor and keep an eye on safety in their community. Businesses don’t have this added layer of protection unless they have an overnight guard. Often when the working day is over the building will be left empty making a professional alarm system even more important.
