Office alarm systems

AMCO installs an increasing number of office security systems, largely due to the large of amount of expensive computer equipment like laptops that can be easily stolen.

AMCO tends to install a mix of CCTV systems, Access Control as well as monitored office alarm systems. Watch the following video of a demonstration of a monitored office alarm system from one of our customers’ offices in Soho, Central London.

Large commercial site security systems

Over the years AMCO have developed up an expertise in providing security systems for large commercial sites like warehouses, commercial yards or large outdoor spaces like solar farms.

We can design bespoke security systems for your specific needs; generally we combine both monitored intruder detection systems with CCTV.

See the image on the right of one of a solar farm security system we designed and implemented outside Swindon.

Specialist AI CCTV for business sites

When it comes to CCTV, AMCO have experience implementing commercial systems for anything from corner shops to large warehouses and giant solar farm complexes. We specialise in artificial intelligence (AI) CCTV, as AI provides the best security possible - providing you with a truly 'smart' security solution.

How much business alarm systems cost

The cost of commercial security systems depend on four main factors: 1) What you’re trying to secure e.g. are you securing inside a property or outside (e.g. equipment or vehicles in a yard) 2) Equipment types & functionality e.g. do you need an alarm, CCTV or access control - or all three 3) Security levels e.g. high security for high-risk sites like jewellers or betting shops 4) Monitoring & maintenance services e.g. do you require alarm & CCTV monitoring services, and do you require an annual maintenance contract.

Typically costs for commercial alarm systems are split into two: install costs and monitoring / maintenance costs.

Service Cost
Commercial alarm installation cost from £800 + VAT
Annual alarm monitoring cost around £200 + VAT
Annual maintenance cost around £90 + VAT

Insurance requirements for business alarm systems

In many cases, insurance companies mandate their commercial customers to have alarm systems to protect their businesses.  Insurance requirements of alarm systems vary, but common requirements include:

> Monitored / police-response: depending on the type of business you run, many insurance companies mandate a monitored alarm system and in the case of high-security situations require you to have an alarm system with ‘police response’.

> Grade 2 or Grade 3 alarm equipment: high-security commercial alarms often require the installation of Grade 3 alarm equipment.  Grade 3 alarm equipment includes things like ‘anti-masking’ technology.

> Dual path monitoring (GSM back-up): in situations where your business has a vulnerable telephone line, or is regarded as a high-risk target, Dual path alarm monitoring will be required, with a GSM back-up - meaning that if the main telephone line is cut, there is an alternative signalling path using the mobile phone network.  Common Dual path technologies include LiveTalk and DualCom.
