Three Intrusion Alarm systems to Halt Trespassers onto Your Property

In Phoenix, whether you’re an owner or even manager of operations of a hotel, motel, museum, convention hall, sports arena, or any other recreational, entertainment, or travelers’ accommodations, you’re generally aware an alarm system is part and parcel of running a responsible enterprise. For those employed at such places and for patrons. We needn’t add there are also valuable business assets to be protected from criminal activity, sometimes from unscrupulous employees.

Alarm systems are security monitoring solutions that can do much to manage all the security challenges that occur within the hospitality industry. Below we introduce the use of some alarm systems and their function in safeguarding your assets as well as your customers’ personal safety.

Alarm systems

Alarm systems provide a valuable service to hotels and motels. Because entry and emergency exits are necessary for the safe and efficient functioning of the property site, alarm systems should be installed in areas where they will do the most optimal job of monitoring the activity of guests and hotel / motel staff.

To help you understand different alarm systems and how they function let’s break it down, according to three categories: (1) local alarms, (2) contact alarms, and (3) remote alarms.

Local Alarm systems (LAS).

LAS are localized to a specific area: for example, a fire exit door.  As soon as someone opens the fire exit door it sets off the circuit breaker, causing the alarm to go off.

Contact Alarm systems (CAS).

Unlike a LAS, a CAS is electrically connected to a host station. From this centralized location security monitoring can occur. A CAS supports the use of silent alarms, used in vulnerable and high-risk areas as cashier stations and storage spaces. The silently-tripped alarm signal can be sent to a telephone station, the local police, private security agency, as well as to on-site security officers.

Remote Alarm systems (RAS).

RAS are transmission-based, using microwave, radio wave, and photoelectric light energy.

Microwave Alarms. (MA).

MAs are sensitive motion-detector devices that can send and receive electromagnetic energy. They are able to detect motion over long distances. They also possess stability and tamper-proof properties.

Radio Frequency Alarms (RFA).

The radio wave sets off an alarm whenever an intruder wanders into a RF area.

Photoelectric Light Beam Alarms. (PLBA).

PLBA uses a diffused light beam that travels between sending and receiving stations. When interfered with as by motion the beam sounds an alarm.
